Sign of the Vool/ Night of the Vool is the working title of an in-development Keen 4 mod by Ceilick and was first announced on Aug 30, 2012. This mod will utilize the Keen:Galaxy Source Modding Package, the same game engine as Atroxian Realm uses.

The atmosphere can be expected to be a darker combination of Keen 4 and Keen 6. Inspiration has been drawn from Commander Spleen's OrbKeen.

Status of development

  • 90% world map
  • 80% enemy designs (17/20)
  • 50% enemy animations
  • 50% background tiles
  • 75% foreground tiles.

Notable and unique features

  • The difficulty settings will be complete revised, so no more enemies are added or Keen's jump height is altered.
  • Keen will have infinite lives and cannot gameover. 1-ups though will still be present in the game and treated very similarly as rare and valuable items.
  • The Player points will reset on death, so recollecting points will be disabled.
  • The number of shots the Neural Stunner can hold will be capped to approximately 25.
  • There will be multiple and unique death animations.
  • The number of enemies will be expand to 20.
