I would support this, it could lead an interesting feel to the story and there aren't many non-Keen mods out there. (Character-wise.)

I almost did the exact same thing with Shmaynoria and its upcoming sequel; however, I think it's more appropriate that Roib stays a Keen title, and I'm sure an overwhelming majority of keeners will agree with me.

Isn't code covered by copyright? You will still be distributing iD's code base, EXEs etc.

hmm. well the whole thing about him being a genius hero as a kid and a loser when grown up is pretty good imo. i might keep it as it is just cause of that.

damnit. Well if they did a thing where they officially release the engine code (like they did with Doom and Quake) can you use it then? I'm thinking not, but might aswell ask.

That's what I was thinking. It would be hard to describe the premise of the game without the Keen setting. Might work for Shmaynoria, though, as it's a great opportunity to use my character "Captain Ken"; Keen's downgrade.

Captain Ken! Savior of... well saver of those tags you find on mattresses. IQ of 14! With his can of beans-with-bacon he travels the railways fighting injustice!

Or maybe he's just a hobo.

After finally making it to Upper Roib, I realized how much I love the music in this mod.
Seriously, it's just so good and fits the atmosphere perfectly. There's only one song in here that I didn't instantly fall in love with, the others are super memorable, catchy and very atmospheric.
Has the game's soundtrack ever been released in any way?
It just might be done someday. The chance is always there.

So will the game freezing glitches be fixed? I've been stuck on this one level for like, 3 months.

I can't really give you any *useful* advice VBB, but even after I saved a bad save in Wreck City, after a couple load attempts the game didn't freeze and I could continue normally.
Only two levels where this has happened to me are Wreck City and Gleam City.

I started playing about 4 days ago. :o I'd completely forgotten about this mod.

It would be totally awesome to hear the original midis or even MP3s, kind of like the UTUIT releases. :)
