That's among the best references posted in this thread.

The Vorticons have been doing antifungals for a while though...

I doubt it somehow. Keen isn't an uncommon word. Also is that Alien Isolation?

It's a common word, but not a common name.

That reminds me, wasn't TMST a fairly well known member of Albino Black Sheep? Or am I thinking of someone else? Might be some references in their work too.

So, you all might know about Minecraft having SGA, but what if I told you it might have another Keen reference?

Older versions of Minecraft have numeric IDs for objects. And the golden helmet has an ID number of 314. (This was added way back in Alpha.) Maybe this was not intentional, but either way this is pretty funny.

Hey why shouldn't it be intentional, most probably it is.
See i'm new to keen but one thing you can be already sure of that "Phoenix" will contain in future obvious and hidden references to keen.
Well sure "Phoenix" already contains many references, mostly to real persons.

That is i know already an obvious easy one, Keen as Commander Keen erm sorry as Commander Jameson.
A whole keenificated face generator?
"Phoenix" (Pioneer) offers to mod it completely to Keen, while sure it's still Pioneer.

Did you ever traveled in the Bean with Bacon Megarocket?
(keen seems to be the kick i need)
