***THIS CONTEST IS OVER!***
I bet that most of you don´t remember ID Software´s old platform game “Commander Keen: Keen Dreams”? (the game was originally released back in 1991 for MS-Dos. Tom Hall was the designer of the game, and Robert Prince made the music). Well, I´m one of those who actually do remember the game. Because my very first PC-game was in-fact the original Commander Keen game (“Commander Keen in Invasion of the Vorticons”, released in December, 1990). So I did eventually get my hands on “Keen Dreams” in the 90s (that title has pretty much always been labeled as the “lost episode” in the Commander Keen series). As I´m the kind of fan who wants to own all the games, there is in a series which I like. Anyhow, just the other day we were contacted by one of the developers who worked on the digital re-release of “Keen Dreams” (you can buy the game via Steam for 4,99 Euro). And the developer gave us nine Steam keys for “Keen Dreams”, so we´re giving them away to you boys and girls =)

About Commander Keen: Keen Dreams:
Eat your veggies!
The lost episode of PC platforming legend Commander Keen hits Steam with this updated version for modern systems.
Billy Blaze, eight-year old genius, has just returned home after saving Earth from the Vorticons only to be confronted with a dinner made up of broccoli, Brussels sprouts and mashed potato. Having chosen to eat ice-cream instead, he finds himself besieged that night by horrible dreams full of living vegetables. The evil King Boobus Tuber has been trapping kids in the nightmarish land of Tuberia, where Tater Troopers patrol and Tomateeth are on the prowl. Trapped in his pijamas — with neither his Vorticon hyperpistol nor trusty pogo-stick for company — Commander Keen must destroy the Dream Machine and return the “sweet” to “sweet dreams”.
This updated version includes:
– Fullscreen and Windowed modes
– Both the EGA and CGA graphics from the original game
– Steam Achievements
– Score and Time-trial leaderboards
– Cloud saves
Now go get ’em, Commander Keen!
