Visit Our Episode Database

We host custom fan-made episodes, that is, collection of levels (or maps) that you can play in the game. To download episodes that people have made and sent us, visit our Episode Database. You will find all sorts of interesting bits and pieces varying from one-level episodes to episodes with tens of levels to play! Everything from classic Janne Kivilahti style to modern space travel adventure.

Welcome to PK2Lib!

Pekka Kana

Hello and welcome to the Pekka Kana 2 Library (PK2Lib for short) — a semi-official fan-driven project that provides a database of free episodes (collection of game maps) and other resources for Pekka Kana 2, an old-school freeware 2D platformer!

We provide links for downloading maps & resources made by the fandom of Pekka Kana 2 and publish reviews, tutorials and other additional stuff related to PK2.

All services provided are completely free, and all the episodes and resources published by us are released under a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share-Alike License. Visit our Disclaimer and License page for more information.

If you have no clue what Pekka Kana 2 is all about, but are a friend of old-school platform games, we recommend you take a look at our page about Pekka Kana 2.

Other Downloads

We have tons of other resources than episodes, as well, like custom sprites, level backgrounds and tilesets. You can find them in our Resource Database.

We also have stuff to make your life easier, such as the unofficial sprite editor. We also host all the other games produced by Piste Gamez, as well as all the soundtracks of those games. See our Downloads main page for anything you might be interested in downloading.

Having Trouble Running PK2?

We Have a Solution for You!

It has proven to be very tricky to get Pekka Kana 2 working on modern Windows systems, such as Windows 7 and the most recent one, Windows 10. Your game might have weird colors or black boxes around sprites — and in the worst case, the game might not run at all.

Fortunately, we have a solution for you — multiple solutions, in fact! On Windows 7 and older systems, shutting down explorer.exe (that is, the Windows Explorer) has seemed to help. However, that is an awful way of doing things.

Our recommended solution is a program called DxWnd. See our page for running PK2 on modern systems for more information.

We Are Developing a New Version

As the source code of Pekka Kana 2 has been published and is open for everyone to play with, we are developing a new version for modern operating systems that, in fact, runs in the browser — if it is in fact possible which it might not be. In that case, we might try to port it on some other platform. For more information about this project, see our page for development.

There is also a remake on the works by piotrulos. More information about that you can find here.

For Creators

Join Us!

You can apply for an episode reviewer/tester position. As an episode reviewer/tester, you are able to

  • test untested episodes,
  • take screenshots for episodes that do not have any yet and
  • write episode reviews on our blog.

Even if you are not a member of our staff, you can, of course, send us screenshots of your own episode that we are hosting or even include them in the episode itself.

If you are a fan of PK2 or other Piste Gamez’ games but don’t want to do any episode testing or write reviews, you can still register to our blog. It will be easier to comment blog posts. So if you comment a lot, it is considerable to register a profile.

More information can be found on our application page.

Send Us Your Episode

Are you an episode creator, a map maker? Would you like to have your very own episode that you created to be available for download on our Episode Database? No problem! Send you episodes to us, and we will add it to the database.

For more instructions for submitting a new episode, see our page for episode submitting.

Help & Tutorials

We have loads of different kind of help articles and tutorials for understanding how the level editor, the game itself and different kind of files work. If you want to know how to construct a tileset or how the color palettes in PK2 images work, we recommend you check out our help page.
