Previously in Keen X Commander Keen had disabled Mortimer McMire's mothership only to discover that it was a decoy and that another battleship lay prepped and ready to destroy the Universe just outside a nearby Wormhole. In Keen Y, having destroyed the second battleship, Keen prepared for the long flight home only to discover that yet another Starship was lurking outside the wormhole bearing Mortimer's all too familiar initial. With little time to act, Keen must do whatever it takes to prevent whatever Mortimer has planned. Before setting out on Mortimer's ship, a precursory scan reveals much about the ship. Keen discovers that Mortimer plans to use four organic parts to create a mutation so large, evil and hungry that it will eat the entire universe as if it were a toast. This creature requires four organs. These vital organic parts are kept in high security, organic zones aboard the ship. Extreme caution is advised when coming in contact with these areas.


  • Bloog tongue - that makes everything tasty
  • Dopefish stomach - to have enough space to eat the entire universe
  • Mutated space amoeba - will make the body of the mutation
  • Carclopsian brain - to control this titan
