Stranded on Saturn is a browser-only fangame by janpaul, created with PICO-8. It's based on the Invasion of the Vorticons trilogy, especially Keen 1.


Keen is controlled by the player through four levels in a mission to get back to his Bean-with-Bacon Megarocket. He can walk, jump, and use the pogo stick, but has no weapon. A unique feature this game has is red blocks that break when touched, and then respawn shortly after. Another notable feature is that whenever Keen dies, he reappears in a safe spot nearby, meaning that punishment is very minimal. Optional items are scattered across the levels, which are recorded when collected. The time spent playing is also recorded (the game can easily be beaten in about a few minutes). These records aren't saved after restarting or quitting the game.

  • Soda - Counted along with Lollipops; can be stood on, much like the Vorta-Colas from Keen 2.
  • Vorticon Teddy Bear - Unique item that is rarer and generally placed in harder-to-reach places.
