Finally, someone's making a 2.5 d game for the 3DS.
I personally think the graphics look nicer (I didn't care much for the original's pixel art graphics).
I didn't like Cave Story that much, so I'm not really interested in this, but still - it looks very nice.

Also, there's another Humble Bundle released:

There are only games from the one developer, but whatever, it's practically free!

I am fairly sure my boss is going to e-mail me later today that I will not get paid for my work. Once again. Even though I had a proper contract this time too.

Then why not take legal action? Isn't that what the contract is there for?

I don't agree. I thought Cave Story was a fun game, but if you ask a lot of mainstream gamers, they probably would tell you they've never played it. A great little title that flew under the radar, if you will. By making a remake as this, it may help boost it's popularity, intrigue, the possible the demand for more titles such as this, and maybe even more old school 2d games. At that point, hopefully pixel artists, like myself, may get more job opportunities to quell the demand.

Of course, this is all wishful thinking. But optimism never hurts.
my back hurts...

They already had an okay remake of Cave Story for the Wii. But this just seems bad, given how far removed it's becoming from the source material. Sort of looks like Crash Bandicoot.

It's weird to refer anyone to a different forum, but this post has some cool pixel tile sets in it:

Man this site is intense. Starting to wonder whether joining was such a good idea. I feel like such a newb.

I can't help it. I randomly burst blood vessels in my head, that's how intense I am!

... how are you still alive? You're so intense that you heal up immediately after?

I wish. I should probably see an intense doctor.
