Want to buy: Commander Keen (all versions)

Post by furan » Sun Jan 07, 2007 2:04 am

I've tried ebay and not had much luck. A friend pointed me here so I figured I may as well try.

I'm looking for the following games in hard copy (with boxes if possible):
Commander Keen 1-3
Commander Keen 4-5 (Goodbye Galaxy)
Commander Keen 6 (Aliens Ate My Babysitter)
Keen Dreams (the box version, rare)

Will pay top dollar for the set.

I'm also interested in other Apogee games like Duke Nukem 1 & 2, Halloween Harry, etc. Anything coming in a hardcopy version with original packaging.

Thanks!
-Ian

Thanks for the reply. I am looking for these games to collect them as they have nostalgic value for me - which is why I'm looking for the originals in their packaging.
Thx,

Most of those are still available to buy new.

Unfortunately, not in the original packaging for the keen games. I'll have a look for the others, though.
Thx,

I might have my wires crossed here but weren't those games all shareware and as such didn't come with any packaging?

Keen 4-5, Keen 6, and Keen Dreams all had packages for sure. The Keen Dreams one is even rarer than the Keen 6 one, but I've seen it.

A few had retail releases. In other cases you may have been sent a box with the full version in.
