If Keen got a new game, what would you want in it?

You don't find that out until you've bought it. To upgrade you can build a distillery and wait 3 IRL days for it to process OR you can buy the Quick Upgrade for just another $5!
What you really need, not what you think you ought to want.

What I'd like to see in a new Keen game would probably be a 3rd person platformer in the vein of something like Banjo Kazooie. It would be a playful game with a wide open landscape yet sort of set path for Keen to follow. I would also like to see voice acting in the Keen games, even though this hasn't been seen in previous games and might be a bit jarring.

In the USA, I'd say it is whiskey.

check here and read the standards for "Class 2; whiskey." Should be in the second definitions on there. I think the key phrase is, "...and also includes mixtures of such distillates for which no specific standards of identity are prescribed."

Don't ask me why I know where all this garg can be found...


But back on topic, I'm sure Tom would have (another) stroke if someone took his game and found a way to turn it in to a pile of garg with micro transactions and excessive advertising. Like most "modern games"

GLORY KILLS AND SPEEEEEEEDDDDDDD

Wait, wrong id game.

Just Keen stuff. Keen gameplay, maybe a few added features (nothing game breaking.) Keen humor, Keen story.

I just want Keen, is all.

My favorite part in keen 6 was when you get to kill the spiderdemon at the very end.

I think keen's adventure from keen 1 to keen 9.5 it's a very nice adventure that would be more fun (in my oppinion) to make it take a bit more of realism and history. A first person interact game (like half life 2
or something) looks like an interesting way of making keen's adventure, just imagine you see all the world of mars, vorticon mothership, vorticon VI, gnosticus IV, the omegamatic, fribulus xax, krodacia, calidune, mort's bases, shikadus, altaire prime, frosthool, finally to return to gnosticus IV... all those worlds in a first person perspective, with cartoon graphics, phisics engine, puzzles to solve, NPCs (i imagine a co-op battle with princess lyndsey or lt. Barker against numerous enemies while waiting for a ship to come at our rescue or while waiting the player solve a puzzle), with new triks with the pogo, new enemies, places... it should be really interesting.
Signed. IceDuck347 Have a nice day!
