Possibility of a new Keen game?

I wonder if a new Keen game will ever be made as I am a huge fan of Commander Keen and I don't want him to permanently die out :begging

There's an approximately 0% probability, sadly.

The good news is that there's no shortage of mods and fan games.

Hmmmnnn.... interesting question. On the one hand Keen has a very small footprint at present, it's an old game from decades ago.

However there is a LOT of nostalgia around the place. It seems a good portion of adults in the 20-40 age group remember Keen and similar games have been remade or extended in the past. When you look at Keen's contemporaries a large number have been dredged up for further cash opportunities. I wouldn't put an animated Keen movie out of the running (We've had what, TWO movies about video games since 2010?) Keen's had a port to cellphones (Dreams) plus everything we've done, one of the biggest games of last year was a retro pixely thing...

It's not likely, maybe 10% per year. But I don't think it can be written off either.

I think ID software won't make new Keen games. But fans still can do it. I still remember NetKeen and I know about lots of your mods which essentially are new Commander Keen games.

But has there ever been a GOOD video game movie? Discuss :3

Well here's hoping Ratchet and Clank will be alright.

I would note that many video game movies were deliberately bad as part of a tax scheme. House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark, Alone in the Dark II, BloodRayne, BloodRayne II: Deliverance, BloodRayne: The Third Reich, In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, Postal, and Far Cry. One man, one ingenious scheme to enrich himself at the expense of video games: http://www.cinemablend.com/features/Uwe ... g-209.html


The path is clear, we must kill him before he gets his grubby mitts on Keen.
