Has anyone ever noticed that of all the Keen episodes, only Keen 2 has yet to have a mod in the current decade (2020s)? The last Keen 2 mod came out in early 2019.

Also, that Apple II port looks pretty neat! Since you said the author is a Twitter user, Roobar, are there any tweets about it that you'd like to link to? I assume the Keen Awards 2024 nomination is for 4.3: Most Promising Project, correct?

I don't think it will be possible to make that happen, but I still think it's a neat thing. So probably the neat thing category or art. Anyway, here's a tweet https://twitter.com/deater78/status/1766334447257895073

And just when I thought this won't get any further, the guy showed a proof of concept of an actual gameplay (albeit much more simple):

So it might come out as a playable fan game (or demo) eventually?

TUIT art. Something made with AI. It's funny though.
