Default Commander Keen 3.5 - Keen Dreams

Hello

Just wondering if this classic is Abandonware and could be put on AB

I'd be glad to review it because I'm a big Commander Keen fan

Unfortunately the only Commander Keen game that is no longer protected is the last in the series, "Aliens Ate My Babysitter", which was originally published only by FormGen, who resold it to Apogee, and it is now discontinued. The rest of the series is still protected and only shareware versions can be legally obtained for free.

So, does the full-version have a go or not? And I wanted to upload it :notrust:

EDIT: My information is outdated - it was available for a while, but not any more.

Look here at the OldWarez list
Apparently it's listed as freeware (I doubt that), but id only has a small Overview for the game, no support whatsoever and since SoftDisk doesn't publish games anymore I think it's right to consider it Abandonware.

Edit: we had a little chat, we can consider it Abandoned.
This is a special edition of the Keen series, not supported and abandoned.
The other titles are sold on Steam:
