Commander Keen GBC?

Post by jonnyspeight » Mon Jul 14, 2008 11:06

This is just an idea, cuz im terrible at modding of any kind as i have not the know how or the time or means to do so. but wouldn't it be cool if someone made a fan game or a mod of keen around GBC, essentially making a PC game of the GBC one?

Yeah... uh... if you're terrible at modding I'd stick with just modding the PC ones. It's quite simple, really. I'm no GBC expert, but I'm assuming it's ESA protected and that would create some difficulties...?

Well, it's simple to make a piece of crap mod, anyway. I've not figured out how to successfully mod in the first place.

Do you mean taking the tiles and sprites from the GBC game and using them to mod one of the PC Keen games to resemble the GBC Keen? I'm not a terribly huge fan of the GBC game, but I'd still be interested to see that.

Or perhaps a mod using the locations and characters from the GBC game, but with a graphical style (that might not be the correct term) similar to one of the PC Keens...

I never actually played it myself, but I've seen enough. The fact keen was given a red shirt and peachy skin is reason enough to puke. HE'S SUPPOSED TO BE AN ALBINO WITH A MAGENTA TEE DAGNABBIT! :x

Actually, the only thing worth is porting Keen 4-6 to NDS.

Why not port 1-3 as well?

Hm, and Keen GBC wasn't altogether a terrible game. Not very Keenish, but done with original characters, it would've been a good game, I think.

I don't really get what's with all the hate for it.
Yes, it's not very keenish, but it's still a good game. Take out the Commander Keen references and I'm sure most people here (the ones who played it anyway, which'd be far less) would have liked it.
