    So, someone should really get this game ported to the DS... It's by far one of the best 2D side scrollers I have ever played. AND IT'S FREE.

    The game and english patch is available here (for PC):

    it is being ported to the DS--last I heard anyway.
    it was planned as a GBA project and then switched gears.

    don't know how far it is, but you'll find what's done here
    for gba users, the sound demo (organya.gba) is quite good.

    I think it's just the original developer, I can't see the source anywhere, a port's pretty unlikly unless the developer decides he wants to finish it all on his own.

    ahhhh, cool. I'm glad I'm not the only one who has thought about this idea. It would be so perfect on the DS.

    Can't wait for a 100% finished release!

    Thanks for the replies

    no it's not the original developer, just somebody who asked for permission.
    There was a group planning on releasing a *commercial* psp version, but I don't know if that's ever going to happen. Last I heard there was a bit of a problem with the translator they used when talking to studio pixel. Apparently the breakdown in communication related to them selling the game.

    great game though. Cave Story really has a great atmosphere, due in great part to its retro styling.
