well, that was predictable, wasn't it?

...it so happened that I might know someone who might knows somebody who had the foresight to downloaded that video in question and stored it somewhere save...

This is so idiotic ... the game is 30 years old... I mean, honestly, how much money can be lost by the company if they allow a fan-Remake?!

lemme answer your rhetorical question:
they wanna suppress negative publicity, that's all. Honi soit qui mal y pense. *cough*censorship*cough*

Let's face it... Bethesda/Zenimax's Keen game is going nowhere and they know it.

They can't censor it all. Everywhere, where there's something about the mobile Commander Keen reboot, there are some negative reactions.

I'm more worried about zenimax focusing on copyright striking videos (what they do best, it seems) rather than making quality games. While technically they are in their right to do whatever they did, I didn't thought they would have get as low as banning a mere 100 views video that was not making any money or wasn't taking away anything from their precious mobile franchise. But apparently, they do. I would have have understand, if the video have had more than 100 000 views with ads revenue, or if it was selling a game. But banning it for 100 views was, yet again, another pathetic move by them. That means that they might be watching other videos and our forum as well. Could the unusual bot activity lately be actually their bots searching for Commander Keen content that they will consider banning? Because that bot activity had raised not long after their mobile game announcement. Really fishy... In the mean time, we should watch out for other videos getting special zenimax treatment...

I mean, maybe, but I'd assume it's just spambots.

My guess is they want to avoid people being mislead. One one hand you've got a game that uses professional art assets and is shown off in videos as a game that looks like something Keen fans might actually want to play. On the other hand you've got Bethesda's game. They clearly don't want anybody to expect *that* kind of gameplay from their Keen game. I guess this says everything that needs to be said about Keen mobile.

So what will happen now? Is the project dead for good or does it simply have to be renamed and rebranded?
