Time for an update. I received Keen:Return
from DaVince. In addition to the source and various images, an exe file is included, but there isn't that much to do if you run it. There should be more content if you open the source in Multimedia Fusion (which I don't have). The game is actually the predecessor of DaVince's Sphere-based Project Keen.
I also added a game called The Bean-with-Bacon Megarocket vs The Trecentiquindecim
(BWBvsTQD), which is a two-player shooter created with Game Maker by MortimerInBlack in 2005. It's not part of the list since the ZIP file was retrieved via Wayback Machine.
Still had a copy of Q90's RKeen4
. As it would never meet the KeenWiki's criteria, I added the skin mod to a new section of the PCKF Archive called "More Keen Stuff
" (where you can also find neat MIDIs by the Xky).

The following is not directly related to this topic, but it's also unearthed ancient stuff that's worth mentioning, I think. The "older" members who were aound in the mid 2000s might remember the ambitious project of the young filmmaker Matthew Larsen (matlarsen) and his team. Between April and December 2006, he posted various details on the Goodbye Galaxy movie's production as well as images and music. Only a single image, the above poster, survives. It's cropped from a screenshot uploaded to Photobucket by Galaxieretter at the time. Not the full resolution, but better than nothing.
Luckily, all four MP3 files are available again. The Movie Overture (found on the Keen Remixes
page) was already digged up by Malvineous in 2009. I noticed mentions of three other tracks in matlarsen's posts and asked Malv about them. He did a search for the filenames - and here they are.
- Aliens Ate My Babysitter
(draft) - Tropical Ghost Oasis
In case of the last song, I didn't recognise any Keen tunes, neither did Malv. If you hear something Keen-like, please tell. According to matlarsen (who disappeared and never returned to the Keen community), the montage is intended to get the overall mood of the film (sort of dark and rocky). The actual creator(s) of those tracks is/are not known by name, as Matthew only used generic terms like "music guy" and "FX guy".
