Bio Menace is Free
Hello there. How come Bio Menace is Free to Download whereas Commander Keen and Duke Nukem are not? Thanks

Because Bio Menace was released as freeware and both id Software and 3D Realms don't think the Commander Keen and Duke Nukem series should be freeware?

Commander Keen & Duke Nukem series are their cash cow. As I recall, Gearbox owns the Duke IP now.

As for Bio Menace, http://legacy.3drealms.com/news/2005...s_freewar.html

There is not even a single answer is valid here. So it can not be mentioned.

Bio Menace was released as freeware many years ago. The others have not been.
