It's illegal to make not play. As the post above states however ID Software does indeed exist still, they are currently developing Rage as well as Doom 4. 3D Realms still sells Keen games due to a partnership that Apogee and ID had while those games were under development, thus the makers of Keen 64 would still have to ask permission from ID Software to develop their fan project.
