Where to get Commander Keen?

Recommended Posts

I used the search function but I didn´t find anything informative, so:
Where can I get the original Commander Keen trilogies and Keen Dreams? id Software.com doesn´t offer it - they would rather die than making a 1000 year old game freeware. Also nothing on ebay. Can´t this old game be downloaded legally somewhere?

He asked if it can legally be downloaded anywhere.

Lots of other games which are as old as Keen (and many which are newer) can be downloaded legally, so it's a perfectly legitimate question.

BTW, all the Keen games are included in the ID Anthology, and there are often copies of that for sale on eBay.

You can get the shareware from 3drealms. They also offer the full version for download ($10 for episodes 1-3; $10 for episodes 4-5); or the whole thing on CD for $20.

But the id Anthology is certainly the best option, if you can find someone willing to sell a copy at an attractive price.
