Short Circuit Oracle is a Keen 4 levelpack by 55Aavenue. It is a reboot of the Keen 4 story that takes place on the 21st century, with things like smart phones and social media utilized in the plot, with some twists.

Story

Keen used the Galactic Router to connect to the Galaxy Wide Web in order to check out his social media feed, when he came across a post by the Shikadi, stating that they are going to destroy the galaxy, so he went out to Gnosticus IV to get info from the inhabitants. However though, the Oracle, which was in the process of getting powered up so it could collect info about the Shikadi, was broken down by those aliens. The only ones that can fix it, the Gnosticene I.T. Technitions (sic), were kidnapped and dropped off at the Shadowlands, so Keen went to there to go to the rescue.

Actors

Besides the Council Members, all of the Keen 4 enemies remained unchanged.
