Latest Additions

In December 2004, Q90 announced his plans for a modding suite, which was initially called iMod and later renamed kMod. Even though multiple Keeners expressed their interest and at least one (grafix) joined the team, the ambitious project eventually died.
I also received the permission from guynietoren, check out his awesome art. Lots of pieces are still missing, but it's a start. Comic strips 0 to 28 by Mort have been added, too.

Get boxed Aliens Ate My Babysitter! for $29.95! Well, too late, you had the chance in May 2002, as reported by Geoff. The CC314 founder sometimes posted in the ezboard PCKF. Nowadays, the prices might be a little different. ;-)
The creator of the amazing Commander Keen: The Comic Strip, Mort, allowed me to add all his Keen art. Currently, you can find every "extra" piece of art I'm aware of in his section. Sooner or later, the main strips will also become available on this site. Also, the galleries of aintnofuntime and SynDuo have been updated, they both posted edits of a header image by Mort.

In September 2002, Alecswrld impatiently asked "When is Shadowlands [episode 2] coming?". Ilsoap added some preview images to the Shadowlands site and eventually published the trailer on 14 October. Less than three months after the episode's release, UnFleexable created a topic to talk about Shadowlands 3 in June 2003. Keeners speculated about the content of the episode that was never finished in the end, while Ilsoap dropped some vague hints.
Various neat art by Memsys has been added to the gallery. The Fribbulus Xax video flythrough I mentioned a year ago can be found in the section of Xtraverse now.

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. Many threads had already disappeared before due to ezboard's 500-topic limit for each (sub)forum. 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.
