Commander Keen – Announcement and Trailer


Time to kick some asteroid! ZeniMax Online Studios is thrilled to announce Commander Keen, coming soon to iOS and Android devices. Play as twin geniuses Billy and Billie as they race to save the galaxy with their brawls-to-the-wall collection of gadgets and a heapin’ helpin’ of well-intentioned mayhem.

Commander Keen brings the next generation of kid geniuses to your mobile devices with throwback Saturday morning cartoon style. Build your collection of gadgetry and gear so you can blast, zap, bounce, bubble, teleport, disintegrate, drone-strike, freeze, flambé and rocket-boost your way across the universe in Story Mode—or go head-to-head vs. other players in an absolutely gonzo-bananas real-time Battle Mode.

“With the new Commander Keen, we wanted to stay true to the platforming history of the original series, while making gameplay feel mobile-first,” explains Creative Director Kira Schlitt. “There’s a lot of slap-happy nonsense in our brand-new gadget-based action, particularly in Battle Mode.”

“We are very excited to finally unveil ZOS’s first mobile game,” says Matt Firor, Studio Director at ZeniMax Online Studios. “We love the Keen series’ unique character and attitude, and we think it pairs perfectly with this colorful, cartoony style, making for a great combination of fun and tactical depth.”
