This is an alphabetical list of all Keen: Galaxy mods, one-level mods and level packs ever made for Keen. It also includes some in-progress mods.

  • Please click on the triangles to sort by different categories. i.e. if you click first on "Modder(s)" then on "Mod of", you will get a list that is sorted by which game was modded, and further sorted by modder name. Refresh the page to reset all sort settings.
  • Only the newest version of each mod or level pack is listed in the Download column; additional versions of mods or level packs may be found on their respective wiki pages.
  • Dates format: year-month-day (the release date is always for the first version of the mod, if known)

For a per-episode list choose from the following instead: Keen 4 mods, Keen 5 mods, Keen 6 mods.


A mod, or modification, is the alteration of content in order to make it operate in a manner different from its original version. They can include new items, modded weapons, characters, enemies, models, tile-sets, levels, music, story lines and game modes.
