Latest Additions

RocketJess joined the Keen community by early 2004. She became known for her cool and adorable fan art. In March 2004, she presented three pictures of Billy and Mortimer. A year later, RocketJess posted some new (and old) sketches of classic computer game characters.

A new member named allstories released the fangame KeenKong in November 2003, which is inspired by Nintendo's arcade classic Donkey Kong. Keen has to avoid the baddies and save Princess Lindsey. Over time, allstories posted various pieces of fan art, such as a cute Keen sprite in April 2005. He is also known for the unfinished mod trilogy Cataclysmic Conquest, but sadly, I don't have the discussion of its only complete episode, The Last Moon.

A cool 3D picture of the Omegamatic was posted by Tomer2000 in August 2001.
In the thread "Origin of Gnosticene Ancients" from November 2003, Vitamin Zach wrote that yellow creatures resembling the Gnosticene Ancients appear in Naughty Boy, a little-known arcade game by Jaleco. Gnosticene Ancients? They are actually called Treasure Eaters, as pointed out by TCL999. The correct name comes from a mail sent by Tom Hall to the Keencyclopedia creator. Due to the May 2005 hack, basically everything ever written by TCL999 in the PCKF was deleted, but "Treasure Eater" was reconfirmed by Tom in 2007.

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 the Jazz Jackrabbit community'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.
