Operation Ocflore is a Keen 4 mod by Bubbatom. The mod's development was first announced on Keen Day 2014. A one level demo version was released on Keen Day 2015. This mod is notable and unique for using a differing color palette.
After being contacted by a ruthless alien race known as the Ormch, Keen travels to Ocflore V which is a planet almost completely covered in sea. The Ormch request that Keen destroy the entirety of the planet's inhabitants as they are part of the failing "Ocflore Project". After learning more about the planet and it's inhabitants from another species called the Dorsal, Keen decides to put an end to the Ormch's plans and the continuing Ocflore Project.
The Ocflore Project itself is an ongoing enterprise-cross-experiment carried out by the Ormch to produce the precious substance Ostrum. Ostrum materialises in the skies of Ocflore when intelligent sentient species are present and is harvested for profit. Three races have been 'used' to produce Ostrum. The first being the Savannaks, the second being the Dorsal and the third and current race, the Enkri.
The player has to decide whether he or she wants to help the Ormch or to save the current life forms of Ocflore from annihilation. In case of the former, the action takes place on a destructive spacecraft rather than the planet. Therefore, the final mod is intended to have two different plot lines with their own levels each and different endings.
In terms of level structure, the original Keen 4 acts as the model, the best episode in the author's opinion.
