2006-09-30 23:26:47 - Commander keen freeware update.
Episodes 1, 3.5, 4, the five level demo for episode 4, and the three level demo for episode
6 are the only ones that you are legally allowed to upload and download anywhere. Episodes
2, 3, 5, the registered version of episode 3.5 keen dreams, and the full version of episode
6 are commercial software, and should not appear on the Internet or any other online
service, or should otherwise be sold except for authorized sellers of the games.

The seven Commander Keen games were all written by id Software.

1) Marooned on Mars ---\
2) The Earth Explodes | ---> Invasion of the Vorticons
3) Keen Must Die ---/
3.5) Keen Dreams
4) Secret of the Oracle --\__ Goodbye Galaxy
5) The Armageddon Machine --/
6) Aliens Ate My Babysitter

Also the eighth commander keen game was written by David A. Palmer Productions.

7) Commander Keen ----------> Game Boy Color (Play the rom on your pc if you own it)

Tom Hall does not consider this game canon.

And at the moment, there is no legal way to obtain Keen 6 - it was a retail game by FormGen
that Apogee merely resold the title. As FormGen doesn't exist anymore, the game has been
discontinued, and for now, there is no legal way to obtain Keen 6.

Should keen 6 be freeware?
