Collapser Keen and Martinez McMeyer day?

Post by szemi » Sun Mar 15, 2015 11:32

Hello. Since I created counterparts for Keen and Mort, there should be days for them as well.

Collapser Keen's IQ is 413, so April 13th should be its day.
Martinez's IQ is 513, so May 13th should be its day.

It'd be good as I created Mart1,2,3 and 4 so far and Collapser Keen debuted in Keen 10.

Good idea? Not good idea?
Yeah, piece of cake!

I think you should should change Collapser Keen's IQ to 420 that you can celebrate on....ok, well never mind...

Personally, I never agreed with making KeenDay 3/14, since it's already Pi day and Einstein's birthday. Instead, I'd say most gamers put similar celebrations on the day the game came out....like Cosday, which is March 23rd for Cosmo the alien and June 23rd for Sonic the Hedgehog.

So you can always celebrate the day you released "Keen 10". Which would be an important milestone for you anyways, I'd imagine.

@troublesomekeen: Now if we'd all get a day off for each "Keen Day", then by all means, fill up the calendar! haha

A good idea except none of those dates (4/13, 5/13) actually exist 8)

[offtopic]You know, I'm considering that - a Keen-themed calendar. I just need to stop sitting down and find the best intro pics for the twelve months. [/offtopic]
