New Update Available Now!

Hello Keen Fans,

We have a new update available for Keen Dreams now, which contains the following fixes, and improvements.
  • Replaced OpenGL/GLEW CGA/EGA with SDL2, runs on Direct3D9 in Windows and OpenGL in MacOS and Linux. This also indirectly fixes issues with the Steam overlay on Windows and should improve compatibility,
  • SDL2 has been updated to version 2.0.7,
  • Removed flawed SSE blitting code,
  • Fixed gamepad support to be much stricter as to which gamepads are used, prevents issues with irrelevant devices reported as joysticks to SDL interfering with player controls,
  • Bugs were fixed but may only be relevant to using a slightly older codebase,
  • Cloud Saves should work properly now.
  • Underlying changes to the Steam Depot system. The Mac version is now no longer downloaded alongside the Windows version.
  • Old files have been cleaned up.
  • 9th November Fix - Fixed GAMETEXT.KDR causing corruption on the right side of the screen when scrolling F1 help
We hope you enjoy the new changes. Let us know what you think in the forums!

About This Game

Eat your veggies!

The lost episode of PC platforming legend Commander Keen hits Steam with this updated version for modern systems.

Billy Blaze, eight-year old genius, has just returned home after saving Earth from the Vorticons only to be confronted with a dinner made up of broccoli, Brussels sprouts and mashed potato. Having chosen to eat ice-cream instead, he finds himself besieged that night by horrible dreams full of living vegetables. The evil King Boobus Tuber has been trapping kids in the nightmarish land of Tuberia, where Tater Troopers patrol and Tomateeth are on the prowl. Trapped in his pijamas — with neither his Vorticon hyperpistol nor trusty pogo-stick for company — Commander Keen must destroy the Dream Machine and return the "sweet" to "sweet dreams".

This updated version includes:
  • Fullscreen and Windowed modes
  • Both the EGA and CGA graphics from the original game
  • Steam Achievements
  • Score and Time-trial leaderboards
  • Cloud saves

Now go get 'em, Commander Keen!
