Commander Keen intro-like

It's my finished introscreen Commander Keen.

I worked on this for approximately 5 hours. It took so long because it was my first serious attempt to make Commander Keen art.

This pixel art will be used in my Commander Keen fangame.

ahh commander keen
i remember those games from the good old ms dos days hehe.
i always found those games pretty enjoyable ^^
but anyways, i think u did an pretty good job at capturing the true commander keen intro style ^^
it really has that classic ms dos feel to it, which i like :)
DaVince21's avatar
Thanks. I tried hard to get that feeling to it. :)

Maybe I should make another one sometime... That is, if I can find 5 hours again. :XD:

your welcome :)
yes sometimes pixel works take quite a lot of time.
anyways i am curious how your next one will turn out.
maybe the commander keen text logo on the background also will be a nice touch for your next one :)

keep it up ^^

Well, I probably wouldn't make another Keen title screen, since this was actually for my fangame. But I have a few other projects for which I could try some fullscreen art...

I don't need to make the logo, I have all the letters for that already. I wanted to do a background but wanted to continue working on the game first, and I kinda forgot. =P

i see i see XD
so rightnow the game your working on is canceled or is it just on hold for a while ?
and would that game be made in flash or just some other kind of programming ?
i tried flash before but i suck at it XD
DaVince21's avatar
Nah, Moon Blade isn't cancelled at all! Or do you mean "that Pokemon Game"? That's been canceled for over a year. ;)

The new project is made in an RPG creator called Sphere. I wouldn't use pixel art in Flash anyhow.

ahh i see i see
well i was talking about the commander keen game your working on :)
anyways pixel art in flash is one of my favorite styles.
i love the old school feeling pixel flash games have :)

Woot! Commander Keen FTW.

Yays, another person to remember Keen! :)
Volbeat's avatar
I don't have it anymore, I don't think. But it's one of those games that you'll love forever. The graphics were great for the day and the sound was very cheerful.

Hey, you can still download parts 1, 4 and Keen Dreams from the 3DRealms website for free! Why not do so and relive these memories? ;)

And possibly [link] to get the games running.

Heh, I was looking for DOSbox, actually. :P

I remembe that game... it was amazing! haha, you got class, my friend!
DaVince21's avatar
I sure do! I still play that game every once in a while, with a bit of DOSbox help... (or without, my pc can handle both)!

*is now very jealous of you*
DaVince21's avatar
Well, it runs kinda bad even in Windows 98, but when I start up in native MS-DOS, it runs great (even with Adlib sound, my sound card still supports it)! And that's on a high-end PC! =P

Works fine on my Windows XP laptop too, with a little help from VDMsound.

Want me to send you all the Keen games later, perhaps?
