To prevent the obliteration of life as we know it, you'll have to battle your way past deadly hazards and devious creatures, or end up as space toast.

      I remember playng this on my Amstrad XT.
      8MHz 8086 with Adlib sound and a 2 button gameport joypad.
      Played it so much as a kid!
      All 5 of these games and episode 6 stayed on my 40MB HDD until the PC died.
      Ahh memories.

    Still rocking my original boxed copies of these. Good memories everytime I see it.

    The copy of keen4 we got when I was a kid (6-7) had jump bound to enter for some reason (which also displayed the scoreboard). We could only play certain levels with the pogo stick and had no idea jump existed for so long.

    I remember going into the settings and finding the issue. Was so nervous doing it as we would get in shit if we mucked around with dos or win31 settings (damn kids break everything). Gave us a break from busting keyboards playing street fighter for a while!

    Shame that the name's a misnomer, missing Keen Dreams and Commander Keen 6: Aliens Ate my Baby Sitter. Something something licensing or copyright.

    •  

      Yeesh Keen Dreams.
      I remember that one.
      No pogo stick and throwing seeds at vegetable enemies to turn them in to flowers for a short period of time.
      Such an odd change to make coming from Keen 3.
      So glad they made Keen 4 after Dreams and brought the pogo stick back!
      You get to meet Dopefish for the first time too :)

    Brings back memories of picking up a floppy disk at coles of one of these games. The nostalgia.

    Just one of the last time great game series, especially Keen 4 - I STILL reference the second largest sandwich in the universe from Chungella IV!! Sadly, being a Mac person I am disappointed it’s not supported by steam for Mac. If any smart people know how to work around this, I’d appreciate a heads up!

      Simple: throw the crap in the bin and get a PC.

      Or if you want the easier option, play in a browser. See my comment below.

      Pretty sure dosbox is available on Mac. It can run keen without issues.

      • +1 vote

        The PC Steam versions are just dosbox launchers, so not sure why this wouldn't be supported out of the box on Mac by Steam. If it's not it should definitely work with some minor tweaking. Doesn't rely on steam to run either, I have copied the game files to a non steam PC and they work just fine.

    Keen 1 and 2 were the first games I ever played. Do not, I repeat DO NOT look up the "new Keen" game. It is a (profanity) travesty what they've done.

    Btw I'm pretty sure you can play them all for free in your browser at classicreload.com

      The mobile one? They cancelled it and removed all evidence of it ever existing, thankfully!

    Loved playing this as a kid till the weight of the world crushed my spirit

  •  

    In mindblowing EGA.

    Loved the first two as a kid.

  •  

    Weren't these release as free/shareware from the start by the developer?

    • +3 votes

      Shareware. You still had to buy if you wanted the full game.

      •  

        Yep, I could never fork out more than $2.99 for a game so the first level was all I got.

  • +1 vote

    These were great games.

    I used to download the latest versions of such games etc off the local BBSes, or grab them off Shareware CD's.

    When I worked for a major retailer @ 30 years ago(that is now history), I used to sell Shareware 3.5" floppies (on the side), which were cheaper than what they usually sold for in shops, and or had more. I set them up so they were bootable with a menu, but it became an issue when people had to save. Dolp!

    The nostalgia practically oozes. Had so much fun with these, such happy memories. Please bring back Leisure Suit Larry and Roger Wilco as well. Joy.

    Fun fact: Keen is the grandson of the main character from the original Wolfenstein games, and the father of the original Doom Marine.

    •  

      So, Wolfenstein 3D guy > unknown child > Keen > Doomguy ?

  •  

    Seeing this deal makes me want to buy Keen's helmet and a pogo stick.

    Any Jazz Jackrabbit game deal?
