A PCKF Community Keen 4 Levelpack
You will need DosBox to play this mod. Run via play.bat. No further files or setup are needed.
A new year, an updated board, an old initial post and some even older level designs.
A perfect time to celebrate some good old, but nearly forgotten, Keen 4 modifications.
The idea of this levelpack came way back in the day (2011). This compilation is a revision of numerous different level designs, which were originally created and published by several people of the PCKF. Some as single levels, others within a package of a couple of levels. Quite a number of them were unfinished or even abandoned.
The motivation of this all-in-one levelpack is to celebrate such ideas and bring them back to life. Therefore some polishing has been done and an embedding little plot has been written.
So here they are: The Lost Tapes, Buried in Oblivion.

First and foremost I sure would like to thank every one involved with either development, testing or simply donating one thing or another.
At long last (started this effort in 2012 but unfortunately lost all data along the way), I can finally make this post. and I hope you enjoy.
This community pack is the product of the work from many people since 2003 till today.
Everything is kept as close to the originals as possible. Revisions have only been made when needed, eg. some candies have been added, tile misplacements got fixed and a few minor things were done, to make things more playable.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback. In particular, let me know if you find anything in the level design that you think might benefit from something like a difficulty reduction, more ammo, etc. I'll take all suggestions into consideration.
Depending on your feedback, I may be doing some similar effort on Keen 5 or even Keen 6 materials in the future.
I also want to share an extras folder containing various development files.
