    Just giving this to some indie developer would be much more respectable than this. (Wise if it's an indie developer with good platformer games under their belt.)

    WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS ROASTIE KEEN BULLSHIT I DECLARE FATWA ON BETHESDA :mob:

    Although for a more reasonable stance, it's a game for kids. As were the originals. Yes, they could've made an actual Keen platformer and it'd still be a kids game, but platformers are probably for decrepit old men like myself these days anyway and actual kids watch 20somethings stream themselves playing mobile games and oh god now I want to die

    If it wasn't mobile crap it would have been passable, at best, but this is a deal-breaker. Also, not related to this game, but fuck whoever broke Battletoads' Dark Queen design with a bloody CalArts equivalent.

    Thankfully this game is not canon, we know how Commander ended up in his adulthood:

    I don't remember Keen being a turn-based "platformer".

    It's a new genre: clown-based platformer.

    I have no idea what the target audience for this game is. People who played and grew up with Commander Keen obviously want a game like the originals while youngsters have never heard of it and just see another typical F2P mobile game with a cutesy rehashed artstyle. Also, it takes talent to fuck up the Dopefish.
    Like Tom Hall I do like the new Doom and Wolfenstein games but this one? What were they thinking?

    I assume they were thinking, "we already own this IP, so let's exploit it."

    I used to play Commander Keen along with Crystal Caves and the old Duke Nukems. This looks pretty bullshit. What’s the point of even calling it Commander Keen, only old farts will take notice and none of ‘em are gonna like this shit.

    I don't even get how it works. Are they trying to mimic Worms?

    "Im gonna pogostick on todd howards grave for doing this"

    But first: Pogostick on that mountain, kid! :cool:

    Oh boy, a new Commander Keen game, i loved those when i was youn...it's a mobile game?

    Well, maybe it's one of the very few mobile games that don't suck, let me just watch the trailer before judging it and...yeah, no, that looks like a generic mobile F2P game, it doesn't even look like a freaking Commander Keen game!

    Who the hell is going to play this crap!?

    Commander Keen fans want another game that isn't on mobile and is more similar to, you know, the rest of the franchise, and kids won't recognize Commander Keen anyways, so this is just a waste of time and money.

    They unlisted this gameplay trailer for some reason. The animated trailer is still listed.

    The only good thing to come out of this is the Youtube likes-dislikes ratio. That's a good ratio. Gives me hope for humanity.

    Until the next Fallout game trailer comes out, that is.

    Prepare for lots of 'I heard my parents played this when they grew up' comments to make all of us feel tons older.
