@Videogamer555 Commander Keen 1 is actually Shareware, The first commander keen was given out to whoever wanted to download it, You can actually download it w/out paying on 3D Realm's site. The rest of them, they make you pay for though.

You're right @Videogamer555... We offer this game but if id software asks us to remove it, we will delete it immediately !

Unfortunately ID Software (the maker of Commander Keen 1) is in fact selling the game still at their website. It is not abandonware.

I'm not a representative of the company, but as a good citizen, I feel it is only right of me that I ask you to remove this software, as it is piracy to offer downloads for software which is still for sale.

For a retro, PC game... this is the best game in the world.
I've played it since I was younger than 6 years old and still love it!
I don't think I will ever get sick of this game.
