EVERYONE STOP MAKING SUCH A BIG DEAL ABOUT ID STILL SELLING THESE GAMES HOLY SHIT! Sorry, just had to get that off my chest. It is ok to put these up, even if they are the full version because this is the original DOS title, ID and other sites like steam or GOG are selling version that work with modern OS's therefore these ones are perfectly ok!

@supersmith network: just because something is abandonware does not mean people do not sell it..

GuioHD4fun, no it is not. Only Keen6 has a demo.

If the full version isn't abandonware then is bloody well should be. It's ancient and probably one of the most pirated games in history.

How is Keen 2 abandonware? You do know id Software still sells Keen 2, 3 and 5 on their site, 3D Realms site and even on Steam so I strictly recommend you buy them.

Please remove the full version of the games or else the copyright owner could shut down this site. Shareware is fine but not the register versions.

Thank you.
