    Default Commander Keen - CD Rom

    I picked this up at Goodwill for $1. Never seen anything like it. Does anyone have some remote idea what it may be worth? I have it up on eBay for $25, some guy in the Ukraine is interested.

    From the Commander Keen fan site:

    http://www.commander-keen.com/keen-dreams.php

    It is a stand alone game that was apparently not released in the shareware format, although a demo was available. It is available for download on that site, so I am not sure of any value. Just make sure the guy who is interested doesn't see that link.

    Install it using DOSBox.

    There's a 50/50 chance that this contains the full game, or a shareware version.

    And it says "shareware" on the back, so...

    Edit: Er, Jimmy, that site says a "demo" was released. Most likely, this CD contains that demo. :P

    That was why I said a demo was available. I didn't see the shareware comment on the case but it doesn't surprise me. What I meant about not released in the shareware format was they traditional method of 1 episode being shareware but the other 2 being commercial releases.

    It was first released as a full retail game, then about a year later a shareware version was released. I looked this up yesterday but didn't post anything as I couldn't find a value mentioned anywhere. I'll post the link now.
