Re: Keen 6 Most Favorite Level?

For nostalgic reasons I have no choice but to pick Bloogton Manufacturing. I actually like the level layout, as a kid I found it intriguing and exciting whenever I managed to progress through the level all the way up to "the part with the hexagons". Vertical levels often tend to suck but ...

Scuba venture

I was recently reading Masters of Doom and it mentioned scuba venture as a game Apogee made for ID for IDs game development contract with Sofdisk so that ID could focus on wolf 3d. I'd never heard of this game before so I checked it out and I thought it gave off a commander keen vibe with the ega gr...

Re: Commander Keen and blues music

I thought the map theme to suburban shenanigans is another great bluesy number, to my mind, quite in the spirit of some of the Bobby Prince keen music.

Commander Keen and blues music

Commander Keen and blues music - my two cents. I have not been able to find Bobby Prince's birthdate, but he seems to be approximately a contemporary of my dad and someone who was a young adult in the 1960s. In the late 1960s in the US, blues music (mostly from the standpoint of blues being infused ...

Re: Xargon mod - Uncharted Isle

Yes it is nearing completion. I'd put it at 85-90 percent complete. Please share anywhere. I think this will be the first Xargon full mod using the original dos game as it's base!

Re: Bio Menace's 30th Anniversary

What is amazing to me is just how much content is in this game. It has a lot of variety in the level and enemy graphics. I enjoyed the shareware version when it was new and it's still on my list to beat the registered episodes. Some of the levels get very very difficult and I have to put the game do...

Re: Looking for musician for Xargon mod

Dave216 has been an incredible help with the music for this project. Things are at a point now where I'd like to start a bit of promotion, so the first post has been edited to include a promo!

Re: Commander Bean - my incomplete Keen fangame from when I was 11yo

Thanks for the interest folks. Here's a playthrough of the map and a level, as well as a tour of the character and monster block sets, which includes some unused content you don't see in the playable parts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbFfm3PgUTo I'm not averse to uploading the files and/or comp...

Commander Bean - my incomplete Keen fangame from when I was 11yo

I recently uncovered some ancient decades old data of mine that I thought might have been lost. So prepare to be amazed because it is time that the world learns about my incomplete and unreleased fan game Commander Bean from the 1990s!

Re: Looking for musician for Xargon mod

Thanks. I know exactly what you mean about Dan's tracks. They were quite atmospheric and imo elevated both Jill and Xargon, adding a cool sense of mystery and foreboding in each game. No one has volunteered for music yet so I'll broaden the search to some other sites and see if I can rope someone in...

Re: Keen Dreams Gold Edition

The trailer looks great. I always disliked the fact that Keen Dreams did not have music (despite having the music option in the menu!) so this already looks like a great experience just from adding music alone.
