MILDLY NEAT -- For all your random Keenery needs!

Post by proYorp »

It's been noticeable for a long while now that there are quite a lot of posts in the Off-Topic Thread that are, in fact, not off-topic at all and very much related to Keen.

This can become troublesome as those posts tend to get lost in the 150+ pages of the thread and may be difficult to find again... or, to even remember that they exist at all. (There had been at least one thing buried in there that I would have nominated for the Keen Awards if I'd remembered it existed!) My hope is that having a thread specifically for those little interesting things will help to prevent them from getting lost.

* * *

Quick summary: This thread is meant to be a depository for all of those little Keen-related things that are kind of neat, but maybe not quite enough so to warrant their own dedicated thread. (In essence, what the Off-Topic Thread has become but without all the other unrelated posts in between.)

Haha Lego Keen IRL! :D I love the details, especially the door and gem. That's awesome, who made that?

I just thought of this mod for the first time in a long while. And now it's turning 18!

Must be a sign that Spleen is gonna come with updates any day now right? :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

So, there was a topic on this forum made back in 2015 asking if Commander Keen could be included in Windows 11. At the time, other people thought the idea was ridiculous.

Well, now that Microsoft owns Commander Keen and Windows 11 is now an actual thing, it's within the realm of possibility. Unlikely, but possible.

Crazy how those two factors happened and that idea went from "unimaginably inconceivable" to "hey it could happen!"

...and you all doubted SupFanat. :p
