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.

All of his releases are betas. ALL of them. There is no final release.

Here I see v2 beta5. Is it the latest (aka "final release")?
Yeah, piece of cake!

For the moment, there's work (or was I think) on tweaking a few things across all the Keen 7-9 trilogy.

Sorry if this is considered rude, but I've been ripping the music from Keen mods using KEENSND and I noticed there's an extra track in BotB not heard anywhere I can find. It sounds a lot like something either for the title or for the plot text scroll (since it wasn't designed to loop); in terms of the actual content, there's a clear throwback to Keen4's "Oasis" track. I'm just curious if there's any tiny story behind its inclusion (and/or if it's actually used: you don't need to say where, I'm fine searching more).

That track is "Keen Forever" by Zidanea, originally intended for the end game sequence. I think for some reason, either track limitations or just the mood of the track, it was dropped in favor of another. Odd that it still found its way into the game files, but it was released in musical outtakes package I put together located...somewhere in this thread :crazy

It's a downward-pointing arrow.

Isn't seem to be an arrow, but much like a satan cross.

To be honest it's not much like either.
Keening_Product was defeated before the game.

In either case it would need two more bubbles.

"Keen Forever" sounds sort of like a Chex Quest track.

It's actually an alternate name for the official TUIT.
LMAO.

Then it will finally get released and get universally panned despite being at least decent - it just won't be brain-explodingly awesome after all the hyped up waiting! :dead2

Why it is not possible to play level 17 when it looks like it's fully functional?
