The Mortrix is a Keen 2 mod by Quillax. It has a lot in common with The Morticore, and can therefore be considered as a sequel to such. It also takes inspiration from Wario vs. Windows, an old Mario fangame. The goal of The Mortrix is to experiment with what can be done with Keen 2's engine and features. The Mortrix is the first Keen mod by Quillax that is released on a day other than Keen Day.

One notable aspect of the mod is that each level has a unique, hidden item that is worth 5,000 points each and are from another Keen game or mod. It's also known for its unusual setting, taking place inside Keen's computer, the Doscom, which is based on Microsoft Windows (mainly XP).


Commander Keen returned to home after having a recent face-off against Mortimer McMire, the latter of whom is now thought to be gone for good. Mortimer still has one more trick upon his sleeve, though, as he had sent a package to Keen that has a disc containing a virus, called the Mortrix. The package is disguised as a prize from a made-up lottery, referred to as the Intergalactic Anyone-Can-Win Lottery, with the disc supposedly being a special edition of The Universe is Toast.

While Keen was a bit skeptical of the package, he put the disc into the Doscom and discovered that he actually just installed the Mortrix into his computer. The Doscom then went bonkers and sucked in Keen along with his collection of candies and toys. In there, he met Nisaba, a PCKF member who was just ejected out of it thanks to the virus. Nisaba told Keen that the Mortrix is brought with Maltimers, soldiers that are going to destroy Keen's things, the Virus Vacuum (Keen's anti-virus program), and Keen himself! With that info in mind, Keen went out for yet another adventure.
