Planet of the Pandas is a Keen 1 mod by proYorp. It was originally made back in 2018 as a birthday present for the author's brother, with no public release until Keen Day 2019. Early levels take place on Pandonia, a planet inhabited by Mystic Pandas, but most of the game is spent searching through a fortress on a distant rocky planet.


A disease known as the Chicken Hiccup Oblivious Multi Pox Syndrome, or CHOMPS for short, has been infecting nearby solar systems. Commander Keen has recently discovered a cure, which is made from the flowers of rare Bopsome trees. He has found only a few mature trees, but has obtained lots of seeds. Though the seeds naturally take 400 years to reach maturity, Keen happens to know about the Mystic Pandas of Pandonia, who can make the seeds grow into trees in only minutes by wielding the Pandastic Scepter of Pandonia.

Keen went to visit the Mystic Pandas, who agreed to help him grow the Bopsome trees. While they were setting down pots of soil and planting the seeds, a wormhole appeared out of nowhere and a small robot arrived through it. The robot stole the Pandastic Scepter of Pandonia. Before escaping, it played a message from Izgrgl, one of the top-ranking Shikadi, who said that they'll throw the scepter into an abyss. It is also revealed that the Shikadi, under the direction of Mortimer, are responsible for CHOMPS. Once Izgrgl was done talking, the robot went off through the wormhole. Before it could do so, though, Keen shot a tracking device onto it. He is now locating the robot and heads off to get the scepter back.
