      Thanks! I loved the Keen games growing up, they’re lots of fun 🙂
      I’d love to post a full collection zip, however I am somewhat limited on space for my webhost plan I am on, so to save space for new content and photos of the collection I can’t really duplicate all the downloads in a 2nd archive.
      Favorite PC/XT era game would probably be the old ASCII text based StarTrek or PacMan games, they would run on literally just about any DOS machine, and are still quite fun.
