Commander Genius Platforms Version 2.x
With the Keen Dreams support added we are nearly complete with the range of Keen games running. With exception of Gameboy Color Keen version all the games are supported by Commander Genius. Version 2.0 will be a special version in which a lot of fine tuning work goes into the code. It's still not out yet, but there are similar beta versions starting with the 1.9.x series. That series has full Keen Dreams support, but with some bugs left we are ironing out. I highly recommend that version, but if you feel unsure with a beta you can still take one of the Release 1.x series (see below).

All current versions are now stable, this doesn't mean perfect, just good enough. The stable version is known to work on most of the systems and has been tested deeper. The Prereleases are known to be stable too, but with minor issues.
You can also browse through the Sourceforge.net packages here. They may not be the most stable versions, but they are more recent. If you find bugs in them we would be happy if you report them to us so we can improve Commander Genius.
If you want the most recent source code you can also download it per GIT here

Commander Keen Episode 1: "Marooned on Mars"
If you don't own any Commander Keen game, you will need one to get the interpreter run. If you own one or the trilogy, you can use them. This is the original DOS-Version of Commander Keen Episode 1 (Shareware). The bundle versions have included this episode already, so no download needed for those.Download
