Despite the data loss, the screenshots and the Foray Outpost video are still up, which is really gratifying. This mod is a lot like the one I wanted to make with Guardian of Wisdom... combining and grabbing things from all the Keen games and smashing them all together into one big ridiculous adventure.
Looks to me that it was simply bad timing, with uTUIT looming overhead. This project just couldn't happen. What a pity. There's so much cool things I see in all sorts of mods that show up in Keen 8 and 9. I missed out on a lot of keening history.

It's probably the worst case of lost Commander Keen project yet. :(

I would prefer to recover the mod if I could.

Has anyone actually contacted Mr_M recently and can show us his response?

How long wasn't this project backed-up?
Backup is in fact a big question but not for such tiny files which fit in every free cloud storage.
For example, even free DropBox account gives 2 GB of cloud storage. Much more than a small Keen mod can need.

Wow, how did I miss this mod?

As for completing the mod, we do at least have some screen shots to visualize and rip some graphics. The woods background is from Cosmo (easy rip). Looking at the KeenWiki page, perhaps making this a half mod sort of thing would be ideal. Having only six enemies would be interesting. not sure about only having two point items would be good, although finding a jawbreaker(?) would be more valuable.
