Afraid I don't have the means and skills to make even a demo of the mod. However I can continue to whet your appetite with additional shots. Any skilled modder who is willing to take on the making of the mod, I can provide graphics and sprites as best I can.

Feast your eyes on these:

We see the Vorticon King up close with Keen himself. I changed the text slightly because in Keen 4 style, you don't kill enemies, you just stun them. This is good because the Vorticons don't deserve to be blasted with a hyperpistol.

And what Commander Keen game would be complete without a High Score screen?

Haven't posted any stuff in a year. Nothing too exciting, but I think Keen 3 may also look good in 4-color CGA. Cyan-purple isn't the prettiest color scheme, but with the aid of composite video, it may look just as good as EGA.

Those backgrounds are beautiful. Really great art. I think amongst the original games, Keen3 graphics are by far the most compatible with cyan-magenta scheme so definitely a good choice on your part.

Can't wait to see how you implement a Mangling Machine in the Galaxy engine... could be utterly epic.
