Planet Cloudius IX is the most advanced and full-fledged keen-like experience you can get. It is based on KEENGINE by K1n9_Duk3. It uses gameplay mechanics similar to the Keen: Galaxy games, but adds on to the gameplay in really nice and new ways.

The development of the game began somewhere in the summer of 2010 and the development of the engine began somewhere in 2008. The initial version (1.0.0) was released on 18.04.2019.

Story

While traveling in his spaceship, Jake Rodgers almost collided with another one that came out of nowhere. For a brief moment he saw that the pilot of that spaceship was a beautiful girl. Shortly after, he followed her spaceship and they both went into uncharted territories. They found themselves in front of a giant formation made of floating islands and atmoshphere that is similar to the Earth's one. He saw her spaceship crashing on one of the floating islands. As he felt strong feelings towards that girl, he decided to find and learn about her and what was going on.

Slimer: These green slimy creatures can stick around hard surfaces, but they very often jump and fly in random directions until they stick to something else. The original idea behind this creature is that you were supposed to pogo onto it to get an extra high pogo jump, but as of version 1.0.12 of the game that is not implemented. As of version 1.0.11 they can hurt the player.

Small Souplet.png
Small Souplet: These are not a big threat, when they're small. Side note: Their bigger "daddy" version however, is an entirely different thing! It's a big threat! But as of v1.0.12 it is not implemented. But if it was, then the term "soup" from the "souplet" will make sense.
Oxplet.png
Oxplet: You can find these on the beaches and they use seashells to protect themselves.
Splooglet.png
Splooglet: Splooglets are creatures from the beaches and can take two shots.
