Cave Story! | November 24, 2011

by Joe

I’m sure you’ve all heard of and played Cave Story (that’s a tribute site). As usual, I am late to the party :D I had only heard about it when @hushlorentz told me that rhe “Plus” version is now on Steam. Instead of paying for some “Plus” version (which I’m sure I’ll end up buying eventually), I downloaded the free version and gave it a spin.

What an awesome, inspiring game! :D As an aspiring indie dev myself, it’s always amazing to see indie games of this caliber :D The art is retro at its finest and while I’ve only played for about 15 minutes, the story is cute and the controls are solid! :D Definitely give it a shot! It’s free! :D

Enjoy Scene 41 – “Threat Level: Low”!

Please continue to vote and check out the new Scrufflebeck’s sketch! :D Thank you for voting everyday!

You can follow The Pocalypse on Facebook, Twitter and RSS, too!

Happy Thanksgiving, American readers! :D

@Ruiling. I was just that same thing. He is wearing himself out for that butthole. I hope he gets killed…..ok, maybe not killed but he needs a serious reality check! Great job Joe! :D

Oh man, Doukutsu Monogatari is absolutely one of the best non-console games I have ever played, it reminds me of a great combination of classic SNes games like Metroid, Chrono Trigger and Castlevania. And now it’s coming to 3DS, wish I could play it.

Wow. I just nabbed the music to Cave Story myself.

Fun fact, Pixel made Cave Story ALL BY HIMSELF. Coding, graphics, music, the whole shebang. Cave Story got a spot on the Wii as WiiWare, and is slated for a full, glorious release in 3D on the 3DS.

I have all of the want.

By the way, I nabbed the soundtrack for here, if you’re interested. http://www.mediafire.com/?ijnqxzykcnz

Scrufflebeck is seriously overpowered. Though he’s looking weaker.. probably,he’s gonna faint in the middle of a battle,Nick is near death BUT Greybane comes in and kills all the machines.

As I said before I don’t think he’s use to his new form and is wearing himself out quickly cause of Nick. Plus recall how he was shedding leaves earlier I think this form is not stable for him yet and will kinda receded back to his original puppy form soon too.

@DramaNoMore I know we give a shit bout Nick it’s just cause the Machine City Scenes aren’t what I feel like watching.I wanna know what happens to Jess and what Inner Joe does when he finds out he’s in robes.

@Alpha Terry is in a coma.He will wake up eventually.The African American Heart Monitor will take care of him.

”Yeah.Yeah.Yeah.He a’right”
