I... don't even know where to begin on this one. My first impression is... what the heck have they done to Keen? This frankly looks like cynical mobile garbage. Speaking as a game developer myself, I have to wonder if the people working on this have any passion for the Keen IP? If anyone does genuinely care, maybe there's a chance it could have some redeeming qualities?
I have no idea what this means for the IP or this forum going forward. Could this eventually lead to us getting a proper Keen game in the future? Regardless, seeing Keen return is kind of surreal, even if the style feels completely wrong to me personally. Curious what other people think.
