Keen 9: Battle of the Brains

Here is where to post about the latest Commander Keen fangame or modification you've finished, a new website you've made, or another Keen-related creation.

it was too difficult to deal with a shockshund that could kill you as well as make you lose if you killed it.
Mortimer has 30hp, then every hit after that will stun him for a small period of time.



anyway, i feel that should we try to make a BOTB community mod, people will have to be limited to 2 or 3 tilesets each due to level and creativity restraints of having to deal with so many different groups.

Granted. You have just had a severe stroke.

I will quietly point out the fate of the original CKCM, languishing in obscurity and incompleteness.

And it succeeded where your wonderful effort failed. And still I cannot answer quite why.

Current state of BOTB: Adored by mil- thou- lots of people. Fully compelted and released and possibly facing a re-release. Known far outside the community.

Current state of CKCM: fragmented, with incredible effort in it needing only people to start levelling. Known by six people. Not touched for a year.

It's literally a crime that this happened.

People just cba turning vorticons into a galaxy game when they can mod galaxy just as easily. At least that's what I think.
It just might be done someday. The chance is always there.

I was talking about Dead in the Desert Community Levelpack. We need to make one also for BOTB.

Commander Keen Community Mod. The fancy Keen 1 mod led by Spleen which has been patched to death, most stuff was coded from scratch, awesome tiles were made, and eventually it died. It's a shame, but at least I still have a chance to make my Keen 1 mod noteworthy.

Yeah, sad it died...
Made plenty of art for it.

Frankly I would have made levels long ago if I could understand how the heck you were supposed to.

Nearly all of them, this is likely as close to a final release as we'll get.

So it's a "before the final release" version?
