Where to download Commander Keen 8?

Post by Alex » Thu Jun 30, 2011 6:14

Hi, I just came across a (fan-made) Keen 8 which looks pretty neat on youtube:

Though, I noticed that the game goes from what looks like a K4 mod to a K5 mod, so I'm not sure whether or not this is one game? Or two?

Thanks,
Alex.

Could you throw up a link, Mr. Bot?
It just might be done someday. The chance is always there.

Surely that bot isn't automated... it seems to know (incorrect, but) related websites!

I don't know about automated or not, it's been deleted anyway.

No offense, but whoever composed the music for K7 needs to see an ear doctor!

I think the music was done well in Keen 7. It is all creepy and mysterious.

The Keen 7 soundtrack getting the Keen GBC treatment with tons of blood and vomit emotikeens is overdoing it, imo. Only a couple tracks were really annoying, and that's what the "turn music off" option is for.

What the hell

I stop the nth music of K7 discussion in the K7 revision thread, and now it even starts here in a thread that isn't even related to K7?

I just noticed you're new here Alex. Please stay on topic of a thread if possible, and if you wish to say something to a different subject, there is a search button where you could look if that certain topic has been discussed already.

As quoted from the readme included with the Keen 8 download:
====================
General Instructions
====================

To play, run Keen8.bat. Reminder: you will need a copy of
Keen6.exe (version 1.4) to play!

For information on the game, see the Keen 8 Help file titled "Keen 8 Help".

For Hints and Tips on the game, see the Commander Keen Episode 8 Hints Sheet.

If your computer does not support Dos in fullscreen mode,try
downloading the latest version of dosbox at this
link: http://www.dosbox.com/download.php?main=1

After installing dosbox, just drag the Keen8.bat icon onto the
dosbox application. Its as easy as that!

If you still need help, you can find me and other
Commander Keen fans at this link: index.php
Don't take this the wrong way, but you need to make an effort to do a little research before you bump an old topic to ask a question you could have easily found an answer to on your own. If you have difficulty understanding how to get Dosbox to work with the game even with those instructions, then we'll be glad to help.
