Commander Keen in Keen Meets the Meats

Post by Anoba » Fri Feb 13, 2009 17:18

I heard tell that a mod had been or is being worked on for a Keen Meets the Meats game. I'd like to know if that's finished, ongoing, or where it's at as I like to have something to look forward to.

Is it like Keen Dreams except with meat instead of vegetables?

Yeah, it's mentioned at the end of Keen Dreams I think, like during the ending sequence. I believe that the conventional wisdom on the thing is that it may just have been joke, but that if it happened it would have been off to the side of the main chronology. At least I think. But I heard someone had progressed somewhat on a mod and I'm hoping to see it, to play it, and to be a better man for it.

There certainly was nothing like this released yet.

But the Mod "Bad Dreams" features some kind of a reverse Dreams set, where Keen collects fruit for points and has to avoid evil candy and a giant slice of pizza.

The game, which was to be an official episode, was never produced, much like The Universe Is Toast.

It is in fact possible to mod the graphics of Keen Dreams, and I did indeed try this, but a full mod was not completed.

Levellass,
I've always been fascinated by living, dancing meat. Aint anyone in hear seen Jan Svankmejer's "Lunacy"? Let me be quick to the point. Levellass, would you please post screenshots of your partial meat mod? I'd be thankful, and others in the community likely have an interest in your work too.
Thanks.

Honestly, I couldn't eat brussel sprouts for years after playing that game. Were the sprouts the awful looking green fellows? It's been so long. I don't remember anymore. If Keen were in a "Meets the Meats" mod, I wish it would be a mod of episodes 4,5, or 6 and not of Dreams. That's right. You heard me. Pogo stick!

If I was making a meat-based sequel to Keen Dreams I would call it "Big Trouble in the Little Downtown Deli".

I'd really like to see it as a KeenDreams mod. Should be a great engine for this story with the Flower Power.

a keen dreams mod would also be good for a prequel, set before Vorticons. y'know, before he finishes his BwB and gets his pogo and neural stunner and stuff, maybe he throws rocks :foot

Haha, like Commander Keen Jr.? (kinda like Super Mario World 2) You go through his house and fight off a minor alien invasion. Then you could use ABC blocks as platforms like Jazz Jackrabbit does in some levels.
