Latest Additions

In March 2005, Xtraverse posted a crazy theory involving Christopher Columbus and teleporters, which was thought up by (allegedly drunk) TheOmegamatic. Even more detailed is a post by Levellord, which shows her vivid imagination.
Earlier, in August 2003, stickmanofdoom created the topic "stoner trees?" Do the trees in Keen 4 really look stoned?

Between February and November 2003, Scizor CT posted more than 30 nice pieces of fan art. The first thread was given the name "Dopefish, Shikadi, Mimrocks, oh my!" He drew various creatures from the Keen universe, most image links work. Later, Scizor started the topic "The Return of DSMOM" and posted more pictures, including a redone Keen 4 title screen and a Robo Red jack-o'-lantern. The b/w versions of coloured images are missing in the second thread, but otherwise it's all there, except for the Bobba.

In November 2003, Keengamer (Rorie) announced that his fangame Pac-Keen is finished. It is a Pac-Man-like game using Keen graphics. In various mazes, the boy genius has to collect the goodies known from his original adventures, but Foobs get in his way, which are not so harmless this time. Fortunately, the foes become vulnerable whenever Keen picks up a Neural Stunner.
The main reason for the inclusion of "can't get sound to work in windows xp" from July 2003 is a link in the Pac-Keen topic.
The nominations for the Keen Awards 2003 took place in January 2004. Keeners nominated people and their works in 13 categories.

Past Updates

ezboard (April 2000 October/November 2007)
The direct predecessor of the present-day PCKF was part of the ezboard network. In May 2005, ezboard was hacked and thousands of PCKF threads were deleted  the reason why this archive was created in the first place. In late 2007, the community moved to a phpBB-based forum.

Jazz Mega Message Board (November 1999 March/April 2000)
For some months, Keeners were active in a subforum of Jazz2City's JMMB.

InsideTheWeb (1997 November 1999/March 2001)
It started with a fansite and message board run by Geoff Sims. Over time, various other Keen fans also opened their own Keen boards on InsideTheWeb, a service that existed until March 2001. The community moved on in late 1999, but there was still some activity until the site's closure.
