Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    I never heard of this game till now. It looks like the work of a madman.

    Easily one fo the best games I've ever played, and the best for free. It's all at once depressing, frustrating, thrilling, and beautiful. Well, if you're an emotional sap like me.

    If you're not it's still incredibly well designed, and the last level is like OCD comfort food.

    I had heard about it before, numerous times... But I never actually looked into what it was until this thread. I mean, I knew it was a free game that some small dev team built and that everyone loved it, but that was the extent of my knowledge.


    Now that I've looked into it and watched gameplay videos, I'm freakin' sold.

    By small dev team you mean one guy.

    A single man made this game all by his lonesome.

    I posted this in another thread, but I'll be damned if it doesn't deserve to be seen in as many places as possible.

    The music in this game is so good.

    Apparently different people see different wallpapers on http://www.cavestorywii.com/, so maybe we should share all the different ones or something.

    Personally for me, in areas where your timing and control really mattered, I found WASD to be just unworkable. For the majority of the game it was fine, but for certain instances I really needed the finer degree of control I got out of my 360 controller.
    In what possible way is a D-pad more precise than WSAD? Unless you just mean you're more used to it, in which case fair enough.

    Yep, I shall most certainly be buying this. Buying this to the limit in fact. I've only beaten Cave Story about 10 times, I'm not bored of it yet. I could always go for some more time attacks of "That" place. 4:24 is my best time on this PC but on my old and dead one I had under 4. We're talking in the 3:4x realm of times. I was truly one of the gods.

    Nobody would publish it. I'm assuming by "porting" he means in homebrew terms.


    nobody published the PC version. The guy made and released it for free online.

    This is good news, never played it because I wanted to play it with a controller. After playing IWBTG I plan to never play another platforming game without a controller.

    Actually tried hooking my 6 axis to my PC but the buttons it gives you to work with are impossible to use. The best I could come up with was left analogue to move, R3 to jump and down to shoot. It won't let you use any of the shoulder buttons or any of the main buttons (X, O,square or triangle)

    It would be 'published' via homebrew. There's actually a demo of it floating around, if you've got a flashcart.

    I guess the main problem here is that the PS3 controllers aren't supported on PC. I've had no problems playing Cave Story with a wired 360 controller.

    Huzzah for everyone learning the horror that was the island core.

    I just found that part much harder compared to the final boss level.

    Must finish replayed the super hard final level.
