Announcement trailer for the new Commander Keen mobile game.


As an old-school Apogee/3DRealms platformer fan, this appalls me. The question "who is this meant for" springs to mind immediately. Today's kids have no clue who Commander Keen is, so why should they care? And this is clearly not meant for the old-school DOS platformer fans, so why use Commander Keen?



I have to cleanse my mental palette with some Dopefission.


And the amazing thing that I learned today was that the creator of Dopefission is Andrew Kepple AKA Too Much Spare Time, creator of the infamous Geeks in Love music video also from Newgrounds! And also that Kepple collaborated with AlbinoBlackSheep in the first place!


(And as an amazing sidenote, my research into the interconnectedness of these early Net video creators revealed the 10th Anniversary version of Potter Puppet Pals: The Mysterious Ticking Noise!)
