    Neat :)
    That being said I own Cave Story on multiple systems so I am not really going to check it out but still, neat development.

    I'm surprise that there wasn't a genesis made ost for this game sooner. Finally FM chips like the Yamaha 2612 get recognized for being good instead of being weird with fart sounds and weird noises for sound effects, :)

    You can thank people discovering tracker gods like this guy here:



    This is music he made for an unreleased game based on the Time Trax TV show/movie/IDK for the Genesis:

    How come there's a Genesis version but not a SNES version?
    Lol...
    Is it the Genesis superior CPU?

    That's really cool.
    Maybe they'll make one later.

    Don't know much about trackers... But I know famitracker, that's used to create NES or should I say Famicom style music (Cause famicom apparently more advanced than the nes with better music cause more sound channels or something.)

    Still Listening to people try and make snes remixes sound like genesis is fun. And even some original music too. :)

    Simple question, simple answer.
    It's because of the Genesis' blast processing.

    I already own Cave Story on basically everything, but I might consider trying this!

    I will give it a try, definitely easier to run on Linux that other versions I have. Just use a Sega Genesis emulator and be done.

    I really hope they can finish the project, being able to play one of the best indies ever made on an original Mega Drive with Everdrive must be incredible.

    I remember this port because it introduced me to Beatmania.

    why? the game wasnt made origiginal for the mega drive nor was it based on any mega drive game, so i dont see how playing it on a genesis makes it anything special since its just a lower resolution port, would porting any game to an older system with worse resolution/graphics make it better?

    one thing is if it was inspired by genesis games and it wasnt even that, acording to the dev he was inspired by castlevania and metroid nes so meh i really dont see what would make this special at all imo.

    Can this be finished yet? From what I have been told you can play most of the game, but not beat the last boss?

    As I've only ever put about 4 hours total in to this game I have no idea. Just going on what I've read about this specific project. Just wondering if the game can be completed as-is.
