Latest Additions

2021-09-11
In May 2000, Slasher (then named Matrix) released the second episode of his Spork trilogy, with more robots to blast and new features such as spacewalking and 3D cutscenes. (For some reason, only one player replied.)
NetRaptor allowed me to add her two neat pieces of Keen art. guynietoren's gallery now includes his cool styrofoam cup sculptures. And there's a little correction, it was Genius314 who posted the first edit of Spleen's "Keen on Korath" avatar, not Spleen himself. Also, excuse me for accidentally uploading a WIP gallery of an artist the last time. It will eventually return in complete form.

The latest version of the fansite Commander Keen Nexus was launched in March 2002. The site's team was lead by VF4588, who had also run the first CK Nexus and the preceding CK Rocket before. Despite the new site's neat appearance, it became inactive shortly after the (re)launch.
I added some nice pics by DaVince with his permission. Also, two more images can be found in TooMuchSpareTime's gallery now, namely "Happy Keen Day 2009" and a little portrait of Princess Lindsey (with others).

In June 2003, Yowza posted "That's no door!", related to door tiles in Keen 4. She made the discovery while working on levels – alas, those were never finished. Earlier, in August 2002, scalloped llama posted a set of modified sprites of Keen that show him rollerblading.
Said sprites and additional graphics can also be found in scalloped llama's fanart section now. I also added the missing Flash animations by TooMuchSpareTime, as well as two new comic strips by Mort.

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.
