Does anyone know where this title came from? It doesn't seem to be mentioned in the Keen games themselves. -- Malvineous 06:46, 13 July 2007 (GMT)

I would need to check this out, but I seem to recall that this name was mentioned at the ending of Keen 6. I'm not really sure, however... I'll check out if it was from somewhere else.Sega381 14:25, 13 July 2007 (GMT)
Nope, I checked the Keen 6 ending - it had even less to say about it than the Keen 5 ending, which is why I went with the K5 screenshot in this article. -- Malvineous 23:48, 13 July 2007 (GMT)
You're right, and in fact I was thinking about the Keen 5 ending, but neither of them mentions that. At least I know it's mentioned in the Apogee FAQ, but I had the idea I had heard it before, somehwere else...Sega381 21:12, 14 July 2007 (GMT)
This is the most official place I've seen the name, besides the FAQ: A look back on Commander Keen. It's an article on the Apogee website with interviews to the id guys, and it mentions the name.Sega381 04:23, 24 July 2007 (GMT)
Ah, that's a good reference - I've added that to the main article. Thanks! -- Malvineous 06:37, 24 July 2007 (GMT)
Back when the keen games were just starting to be classified as old, I found the title "Commander Keen 8: The Universe is Toast" featured in a list of games on the ID Games website. ID seemed to think TUIT was just the name of another episode, not a full series alike the FAQ sheet suggests. --Ipfreely555 05:09, 21 March 2010 (GMT)

My (poor) fangame is a link to this article in the fangames list. Should there be a separate article or should there be a subsection in this document for it? Fleexy 17:14, 17 March 2012 (GMT)

Have a look at the 'see also' section on the article page to see how the mod trilogy has been handled. I guess you would create The Universe Is Toast (fangame) or similar, and link to that instead. Then you can add it to the 'see also' section on the article page too. -- Malvineous 02:31, 18 March 2012 (GMT)
