Any way I can get Keen 6?

Post by VikingBoyBilly » Sun Feb 17, 2008 20:17

As in, not on floppies I can't use? If I can buy this game on CD or download the full game online somehow, that would be great, but I can't find a way to get this game. Help?

Heh, there was similar topic quite recently:
viewtopic.php?t=144

As said there, about the only way is to find it on eBay or somesuch (actually there's one right now), or get the iD Anthology which includes the CGA version. No idea of they still sell those, either.

Man, it's inconvenient when things go out of print.

Why can't you use floppies? Floppy drives are only a few dollars these days, especially second hand ones off eBay.

Alternatively you could just buy the floppies and then download a pirated version - it's not illegal to download something you already paid for...as long as you can prove it (which you can if you've got original floppies.)

Why do you think I resorted to asking here? I already tried looking for a pirate, but didn't find any, sadly -_-

And $41 is too much for me to pay for one episode of Keen that can be beaten in a couple hours (and by "me", I really mean my dad's paypal account :o ).

...hundreds of times over, across many, many years, and potentially with new graphics down the track!

IMKO, you're completely justified downloading a copy of Keen 6 while it's unavailable to purchase (And believe me, it's easy to find if you do a proper search or email someone who knows where to find it (; ).

Well all the abandonware sites I find with keen 6 on it... the link to the download either times out or it says the file no longer exists. And my uh... other methods haven't given me results either :rolleyes

I might keep trying for the next few days. For me this is a must play, I won't give up easy.
