Buried in Oblivion
This Levelpack is a compilation and a revision of numerous different level designs, which were originally created and published by several people of the PCKF.
This community levelpack consists out of Level Designs which were independently created by different Authors between 2001 till 2016 (see the credits). Some of which were released as single levels, others within a package of a couple of levels. Quite a number of them were unfinished or even abandoned. This pack is kept as close to the original level designs as possible. Revisions have only been made when needed. The primal packages are also attached in the download section below.
Returning from thrilling adventures in and beyond the depth of space, Commander Keen navigates his BwB Rocket towards the home planet of his good old friends, the guardians of the Oracle. Reminiscing his last challenges, Keen mistakenly misses the landing space of the Shadowlands and finds himself on the back side of Gnosticus IV. Confused but excited by the unexpected familiarity of this forgotten location Keen sets his path to seek his friends. Immediately after leaving his Megarocket strange things start to occur...
