Commander Keen Episode -3 is an in-development Keen 4 mod by cyber zero and his brother. It is the first episode of a planned trilogy, which will be a prequel of the Keen series, take place on Earth and detail the events when Billy Blaze and Mortimer McMire faced each other the last time before becoming Commander Keen and The Grand Intellect. This is reflected by both the visuals and gameplay of Episode -3. Billy has no Neural Stunner, but attacks with a slingshot, and he also has not obtained his Pogo yet. Rather than aliens, enemies include skateboarding and pogoing kids and RC planes. The latter can be destroyed by Billy with a little stomp on the ground which replaces the Pogo feature. Action takes place both on the street and inside buildings.

The mod was first announced in November 2012. A demo version with two levels was released on Mort Day 2015. The first level replaces the BwB level and features the area around Billy's house. He can explore the house's interior and meet the other members of his family. In the second level, Billy has to investigate both the streets and buildings of a city to succeed. He has to overcome dangers like wet cement and girls with tennis rackets.
