Keen 6: Aliens Ate My Baby Sitter! takes place some time after "Goodbye, Galaxy!", and is a major change from the normal plot of the games. The story of the game occurs under the idea that Mortimer McMire is attempting to distract Keen from his plotting to destroy the universe, which would have ultimately occurred in The Universe Is Toast. Mortimer convinces a dim-witted race of creatures called the Bloogs, who dwell on Fribbulus Xax, a planet in a faraway corner of the Galaxy, to kidnap Keen's babysitter Molly in exchange for the Stupendous Sandwich of Chungella IV.

This game runs on an engine that is slightly updated from "Goodbye Galaxy"'s, and utilizes more capabilities for slanted platforms and other new features including updated sound effects and new music. Keen must collect various items all across the planet to progress in the game, which provides a new mechanic.

The game is, however, famous for the abnormally large number of glitches present during gameplay. In certain parts of the game, Keen can fall through walls and platforms, and also present is the famous Impossible Bullet glitch. In addition, saving in certain locations can freeze or crash the game, and even warp Keen to a different location...

Unfortunately, this game is no longer legally available anywhere to purchase, unless bought second-hand. Although the other five episodes have been made available for a US$5 download, and Keen 1, Keen 4, Keen Dreams, and a demo version of this episode are available for free shareware distribution, this game is not legally downloadable anywhere at present.
