    k, anyone who knows indie games knows Cave Story, being as its pretty much the pinacle of indie gaming atleast when it comes to platformers/adventures.

    well, a big fan and great coder started to remake it on GBA a while ago, the creator of the original Cave Story - "Pixel" noticed his work and was impressed, and gave him the source code so he could stop guessing on how things worked, and after the GBA restricting him from doing a few things he's moved it to the DS (fuck yeah)

    he's already released two DS demos, both are .nds's and work fine with the R4 (all I have [​IMG])

    map test with a couple areas, lots of the music (L and R to scroll through) and select switches the palette to better suit users who still have regular DS's

    you can find the demos and older GBA demos here

    ~​

    and stay tuned to the Cave Story LJ Community for future progress, Ive talked to the dude making them and hes a pretty cool guy, I really cant wait till he finishes it, or even for the next demo, coz cave story is one of the greatest games ever, I played through it about 20 times, and I really want to again- but I think I'll hold off and let my excitement build up for the DS version

    however, if you haven't played the original, there's no excuse, if you call yourself a gamer you have to play it

    If the guy finish it (unlike all the indie projects , this one doesn't have a lot or maybe even no copyright protection) this port would be awsome, can't wait for the full version , the Pc version kick serious ass , anyone who like games like recent castlevania or metroids , they need to give the game a try.

    ah Im sure he'll finish it, he did a hell of a lot without the source code on the GBA which wouldve been very limiting and frustrating

    now he's doing it on DS it will be a cakewalk

    I haven't got the patience to play this game on the PC but maybe I'll be able to get into it on the DS. [​IMG] I say make it high quality and burn it on a few hundred unlicensed cards to sell it online! [​IMG]

    Awesome as all awesomeness could awesomely be. They're remaking the game for the PSP too, too bad I got rid of mine.

    Look at the Flag...
    It IS canceled since a while (2007).

    If you really want to play this game on ds you can:

    1-If you own a DSi, buy the DSiWare version.
    2-hope for a DS port of NXEngine which is an open source cave story engine.

    Anyone wanting to play this on a handheld should grab either a Wiz or Caanoo (or Pandora), as the officially-sanctioned-by-pixel GP2X port runs fine on those machines. Playing it on the Pandora's controls is just heavenly.
