Cool A must read article :)


10 years ago, a group of programmers and artists working at Softdisk created a piece of software that laid the foundation for just about every popular computer game today. Working for a company that didn't want to make use of the program that they created, these guys instead turned to shareware pioneer Scott Miller to publish their first game. The company is id Software, and the game is Commander Keen!

Played it years ago when I first got my 486. Still it was kinda lame compared to the current Amiga titles

Ugh...I remember when this came out. It was during my IBM vs Amiga trials. I couldn't believe that this game was causing the fuss it was causing. It just made me appreciate my Amiga that much more.

I went over to a friend's house once- he said he had something really cool to show me. He was an Amiga 500 user, BTW. When I get there, what do I see? A PC, with Commander Keen running! FILTHY TRAITOR! But anyway, I kept a smile on my face and said that Keen looked like a good game, which was a blatant lie. Honestly, the game looked just so boring and dull, and my friend seemed so proud of it. To tell you the truth, I wasn't just unimpressed with Keen and its shitty graphics and Adlib sound, but with the entire PC package, which was about a Pentium 1 100. As I said, my friend seemed so proud at owning the PC, but I couldn't see what was so good about it. As Twist said, it made me love my Miggy even more than I had before.
