This is my Cave Story example map. Don't mind this that you can fall from the screen and don't die - it's just a example.

Huh, how come this game is showing up as a demo in my list? I've got the little 'upgrade to full version' lightning bolt in my list. Clicking it brings me here, but there's nothing to upgrade to.

It seems they indeed added +-version here. They'll just need to rename Demo as Free/original-version (like with Silver Quest). Give it few days to let Desura fix the name. ;)

Interestingly, if you search for Cave Story, it shows up with the name Cave Story+

CaveStory + is already out on steam, i have it :D. Adds alot of new stuff, and i think a slight dialogue change as well. But the good ol cave story is in there too. Personally i love the originals music but meh. If they do add cavestory + here, i wonder if it comes with a cave story t shirt :D

Um... Am I stupid, or should someone start posting finished Cave Story mods? I mean, sure, 90% of CS mods are unfinished, and some are just... creepy, but this game has a genuine modding community.

I have to admit: Upon previewing the game I was a bit sceptical...
Then I played it and it easily made it on my favourite games of all times list!

Pretty cool. I knew this was free, but looked too annoying to set it up. Guess I'll look at Desura more in the future for other games.

I'm using Ubuntu (Ocelot), it seems my character is constantly moving to the left. Anyone else encounter this problem?

This game is nothing short of amazing. It has everything a platformer should have, and then some.

This is one of those games that everyone should play at least once. Truly a masterpiece.
