Musical Keen is a Keen 1 mod by Benvolio released in 2005. The mod is not taking places on a distant planet, but in Billy's hometown, where he has to get back musical instruments stolen by Mortimer McMire. Keen goes to places like discotheques, an ice rink and the sewers. It features an all new palette and in-level teleporters.
