    I got an idea for a prequel to cave story that focuses on the weapons in the game.

    It will be played from the perspectives of Santa, the hermit, Arthur, Curly and Quote, King, the littles, and a killer robot name RRV4.0 (Recon Robot Version 4.0) EDIT: I wouldn't need to do the robot, that is covered in Curly's part.

    I just need to find a good program and i can start on it.

    Hm... idea's okay, but seems like it would be something a person wouldn't finish. If you did, that'd be great, but it's just my thought.

    Try CaveEditor or Sue's Workshop for it. You could of found this answer probably in many places, but yeah.

    There is no hyphen in "recon." It's short for "reconnaissance."

    Also, what that Azurillkirby guy said.

    I like the idea and would have anticipated the first release of there was more insurance for there to be even a first release

    I think this would be a good game if you went into detail or something about how the weapons were made, perhaps. Like how Santa got the Fireball, etc.

    Yeah I wonder how he'd achieve that...Since you can have only two controllable characters.

    I was thinking of Having it be 8 separate games, each one directly after the other.

    Yeah.
    4.

    ._.

    4 games, if you use the mimiga mask.

    Also, 4 games?! Are you F@$&ING kidding me?!

    There have been like 2 or 3 completed full mods in history, you plan on doubling that?

    Each of the mods would be much shorter than a full mod, so I don't see that as an issue.

    Also:
    wouldn't you only need to make three mods? The spur and the snake don't really have a story... Quote gives you a gun, you give him a better gun.

    Eh...

    Eh? Mimiga mask dude. 2 characters per mask means 8 characters, and he does need 8 characters in total.

    In response to the only 4 game post:

    Yes, but i am such a newbie that i am having troubles with sues workshop (I know i'm lame) so i don't think i am going to try to work 2 characters into one game, OR use your idea (Brilliant though).

    You'd probably do one, and if you aren't to lazy to make another one, they you might THEN make another in the game/another game
