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.

Attempting to run Cave Story on Arch Linux 64bit causes Desura to crash, with an error about the wrong JPEG library version. (getting 80, and it wants 62)

If I get the 3DS version, will that still be supporting pixel?

For those who are running 64bit Ubuntu and unable to run, this will fix the issue of the "file not found" error. It's because it's looking for a library at a hard coded location not provided. Simply run the following command and it will run:
sudo ln -s /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /lib/

Enjoy your 64bit cave story.

Do both. By getting the PC version it shows the developer that PC users want these games just as much as console players do. Getting only the console version tells the developer that you have no interest in PC gaming and only encourages developers to not bother developing for PC and only go for console markets.

There seems to be a problem with save files on Linux - every time I run Desura it wants to reinstall the game and my saves are gone :-(.

While not a great fix, this seems to work. When the game needs to be reinstalled (It will say Not Ready in the list menu, go into the desura/common/cave-story folder and copy the Profile.dat file. That is your save game file. After reinstalling Cave Story, put the Profile.dat file back in. Now you can continue where you last saved.

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.
