Suburb Shenanigans is an Keen 5 mod by Bubbatom and was first announced on Keen Day 2012.
It takes place on Earth and specifically in Keen's hometown's suburbs, more specifically backyards, houses and also Keen's house along with a few extras, like a burger joint on the corner.
Billy Blaze's home life was like any other eight-year old kid's living in the suburbs. School was a chore and kids gave him a hard time about his outstanding intellect.
The only time Billy could escape it all was when he became Commander Keen defender of Earth! Billy had had many adventures in space. He'd saved the Earth, he'd saved the Galaxy and recently he'd saved the Universe. The two lives contrasted each other nicely.
Today isn't just another school day though, it's the day of the school's annual IQ test, and to top it off, Billy's lost his bag and missed the bus...

This mod pushes the engines capacity to limit in terms of unique graphics and sprite memory usage per level. Due to insufficient memory the mod might crash in the following levels: Scudders Burger Bar, Golden House, The Mansion, Cosy Dwelling and/or Mr Jenkins House. This has been addressed in version 1.0.3 and 1.1.
The save state crash is also a known bug. Somehow the save files themselves get irrepealable corrupted after a couple of loading times.
