Commander Keen downloads

Shareware episodes

Here, you can download the shareware episodes of Commander Keen. You will not be able to download Keens 2, 3, 5 or the commercial versions of Keen 6 and Keen Dreams because Cerebral Cortex 314 does not support the illegal pirating of software.

Having problems opening the downloaded files? Most of these files are ZIPed up. We recommend a program like WinZip or PKZIP.
