    here
    I haven't heard of this, is this some kind of (pre/se)quel to Cave Story, or what other relations does it have with it? (Other than using the same engine and being coded by the same guy)

    The tileset somehow reminds me of the one used in Metroid on the NES...

    I thought some metroid game at first as I looked at the picture, but when I saw the HUD and character, thought cave story of some sort, art is too much alike anyways.

    Thanks for the link Rydian, that explains it.

    The only connections are Ironhead (waterway boss) and The Ikachans (Squids) surrounding him.

    If you follow this blog at all, you may recall that we’ve been working on Ikachan in between projects. What originally started out as a DSiWare game has now also grown to be a Nintendo 3DS eShop game, too.

    Wait, is it a different game? Why two versions? No, it’s no a different game and not really two versions.

    I need to rewind a bit and given some background. When the eShop was launched, players could (and still can) purchase DSiWare games on their 3DS. This is pretty cool, but there’s a big issue for me, personally. The DSi has a resolution of 256×192 (top screen) while the 3DS has a resolution of 400×240(let’s say 320×240 for this discussion). If you divide 320 by 256, you get 1.25–basically, the length is about 25-percent more on the 3DS (talking QVGA resolution here). What that means is that if we want DSi games to run full-screen on a 3DS, they need to be stretched by an additional 25-percent over the maximum.

    I've only been acquainted with them for a couple days, but I'm really starting to like Nicalis...

    VVVVVV, Cave Story and now this, thanks Nicalis, you made my day :)

    That's amazing and makes me think,
    if Cave story can have a prequel/sequel,
    can VVVVVV have one too?
