Someone should remake the GBC game into the normal keen engine. That'd be neat.

And yeah, they look really similar. Nice find.

That is actually a good idea!

...and Keenrush, thanks for deleting my duplicate post. When I hit submit it went to an error page. So I mistakingly thought my post did not go through. So I hit the back button and hit submit again and then like normal, it goes to the post on the thread. That is when I noticed I had the same post twice. I tried to delete it myself, but when I hit the 'X' (delete post) it went to a page that told me I could not delete posts that have replies. Coincidentally, Deadshot had posted almost immediately after my post was submitted.

Ooops, forgot the H. Isn't Deadshot a member of the Suicide Squad in the DC comics?

actually, i was half planning Hayro to follow the events of Ceilick's TUIT, because the entire story is to stopping a zombie army led by MortBorg...

but that'd probably just increase the strain on the graph. maybe scaling it down will help?

Granted. You have just had a severe stroke.

Hayro should actually be on its own fork in the timeline after Battle of the Brains since it's not Ceilick's direct creation. Hayro would be on the left fork while "Ceilick's Hypothetical Continuation" would remain on the same fork as Ceilick's TUIT trilogy.

That's a neat chart. I think unfinished mods should be left out. I bet a lot of them won't even reach completion.

What about a Baby Keen mod?
Instead of the pogo, he could use one of these:

What's the point of porting it when everyone hates it anyway?

So you can hate it in your PC too, of course! With even better controls* and stuff.

* Probably. I've never owned a GameBoy or similar devices.

Do you realize that the gameplay is going to change if it's ported, and that gameplay is the thing that sux so much about KGBC?
It just might be done someday. The chance is always there.

Battle of the Brains already serves as a parallel to Keen GBC anyway, what with all the references. They're even perfectly aligned on the timeline.
