Cave Story
« on: June 13, 2007, 11:35:09 am »
I thought there was a topic about Cave Story already. Hmm.
Well, if there is one, apologies for starting another.

Anyway, I found a version of Cave Story compatible with PC. It was Awesome. I can see why some of you said it was such a great game. Thing is, I beat it on easy runthrough, so now I must win on hard runthrough or I'm not a true gamer. :(

Does anyone know of any interesting Cave Story media (i.e. online comics, spritesheets, modded versions, etc.) ?

I'll give a caution for content ahead of time, but this 4chan-like board is dedicated to the game.

As for spritesheets, if you look in the Data folder of the game, you'll see a bunch of .pbm files.  These are actually just normal BMPs.  Most of them seem to be 4-bit color though, so that's something to keep in mind when modifying them.

They're supposedly putting (or already put?) the game on PSP, too.

I had already seen the PSP thing and I did find some sprites (although that tip was helpful, thanks).

I also found a comic (only jsut now starting but still active) of Cave Story, the prequel is all they have but it looks great.

EDIT: Some Artwork I found=

I know I've been playing too much Cave Story when I start doing things like beating the final boss with the mimiga mask on and the polar star just for fun. PS, polar star is the worst weapon in the game next to the L3 Nemesis and the mimiga mask means I don't have a booster for the fight.

I'm on the Hell Run part now, and it is FREAKING HARD. I keep dying. I have gotten only to stage II of the Ballos fight. But I will continue to persevere.

Also, I tried my hand at drawing Cave Story characters on MSPaint. I am bad at that too, it seems. But I will upload them anyway.

Patch that changes Curly to Quote and Vice-versa.

Dude, Ballos is FUN. I might see if they'll let me into hell with a polar star some time and kill him. I remember it took me a full year to get the hell run down though <_<

I am trying to beat him without a lifepot. Should I go through again and make sure I keep the lifepot?

AAAHHH
I beat the Hell run!
With a lifepot though... Maybe I can eventually do it without...
BUT I BEAT IT ANYWAYS :)

btw The person who made the Curly Patch (linked above) is considering doing other characters like Sue and King (and although that messes up the storyline it would still be fun to try).

I won't continue on and on as to bore you guys about the game, but yes, I like Cave story a lot. It's one of my favorite games now.

Because it has a high replayability... it is fun, challenging, and has a satisfying storyline. You can really get attached to the characters. And the fact that one man alone made it ups my respect for him.

Plus, it costs no money to play :P

I don't know of anyone who doesn't use the life pot. Even the guy who did the 2:37 speed run used his.

New Patches that let you play as various chracters in the game. Currently you can play Cave Story as Sue, Curly, King, Toroko, Jenka, Misery, and the Crown. He will add more soon.

PS I enjoy going through as a different character and seeing how it muddles up the storyline (i.e. two Sue's).
