    Is this a game where you play as a caveman looking for his future cavewife? [​IMG]

    Hooray! This will be my favourite homebrew game by far, once it is finished! How playable is this version?

    Just a side note:
    The images are swapped, when you click on image one, you get to see image two and vice versa.

    This is one of the best games I've ever played. I played it on PC, and played all the way through (not enough to get every ending and weapon, though). It's just fun all the way through.

    No. It's a game where you shoot bunny monsters and enjoy pixel art.

    ....And just why would anyone want to play it in an emulator? Anyway, Cave Story is one of the best games ever as far as I'm concerned. Really, I can't wait until this is finished.

    nice, cavestory is a downright awesome game, the level design, characters, music, controls are just perfect, I still can't believe 1 guy did it all by himself, of course it took him 5 years but still, I hope someday I can make a game at least half as good as this one.

    So I can't think of a better game to port to the ds, can't wait to play another time through on my DS.

    BTW: I'm Gigahedgehog.

    Also, heres a youtube I took the other night and uploaded yesterday with the demo running.

    And another thing, this has been in work for about a year now, but it was originally for GBA and switched to DS about 5 months ago. As you read he rewrote the graphics engine so he treaded backwards in development.

    that depends on the laptop's key layout

    btw, what happened to the PSP port?
    it was support to have a a mode with updated graphics...I know it'd ruin the perfect atmosphere of the original, but I'd like to see it nonetheless [​IMG]

    The PSP port is a commercial game.

    You'll be able to choose between new graphic/musical style and old.

    Nice, I wish they'd do the same for the DS, this game has everything to be a successful commercial game.

    oh well, to bad I don't own a PSP, and have no intention of getting one either. perhaps for ps1 emulation.
    but really cool the ds port! I'm soooo looking forward to raven's progress. [​IMG] the game is like MADE for DS [​IMG]

    oh and I think pixel himself should be making the game if it were to be published and sold as an official game.

    The psp game is pretty shady, they're upgrading all the graphics and changing parts of the game, Pixel (the creator of cavestory) isn't really informed on any of their decisions nor does he have any say.
    in other words, they've pretty much stolen and raped the game.

    there is a faithful port for PSP also (on the same livejournal page)
    and then there's this DS port, which ofcourse I'm far more interested in, it's got pixel's blessing n everything, they even put some money together and bought pixel a DSlite and flash cart
