That's it - Keen is complete. There can be no more releases. Could an admin please lock that forum ASAP?

I always thought this characters looks like a Vorticon:

This may not have anything to do with the official Keen games:

There are, as of this writing, exactly 667 topics in the Unofficial Keen Games forum. This entire website now belongs to Tormentor667.

Just that forum, not the entire PCKF. Sorry, I don't make the rules.

Anyone ever notice how the Omegamatic from Keen 5 looks very similar to the space station from the Stanley Kubrick film 2001: A Space Odyssey?

yeah, I also noticed that. but I think you are the first to mention it here on the forums.

actually, when I started my Keen modding journey I had this ambitious idea to create a 2001 space ship like level. but I never got really far with this idea:

That's an interesting comparison, Mr. M. Knowing that there are already a few sci-fi references in Keen, it's possible that Tom Hall was inspired by that movie!

That looks it could be an interesting level, Nisaba.

Did anyone notice that the old Game Maker logo looks it has the letter G in SGA?

Image

What about the fact that the letter H in SGA is used in Japan as the postal mark?
