You thought it couldn't be done...
This absolute madman is currently working on Cave story for gameboy color.
Please send love his way! This opens doors to the DS/GBA port being completed.

This is really cool, it seems like there is a lot of work to be done though, however, I hope this gets finished as it looks like it would be really fun to play! I'd be interested in looking at what they're using or how they are porting it to the GBC personally.

Holy hell, I'm seriously interested in this!

I wish good luck to 2000brix, because I'm looking forward to seeing more progress on this.

This looks intruiging, i get that this is rough because its an early build, but that cover of gestation hurts my ears...

I found one further ahead in the game and sound department. It seems that there's at least three coders making a GBC port...
I hope they work as a group instead of all starting from scratch

Yeah, this port has some potential. The developer is in the CSMC server, actually. Quote_02 (Raichu) is their username.

I know Skittles also has a regular GB port in development as well, but I'm not sure if that's been shelved or not. They make some very cute art, tho.

Very interesting. I don't know what all the hardware limitations are for the GBC, but I'm sure this is an impressive feat. Naturally, I look forward to some more of those details getting a bit more polish. I guess some aspects of this might have to stay rough around the edges due to hardware limitations, though.

I looked at the comment section of that video and saw that he's using the GameBoy Developers Kit (GBDK), which basically appears to be an SDK for making custom games for the GameBoy. From what I can tell, it looks like a very tedious process, and he's probably had to re-write the whole game from scratch, so that's definitely gotta be a lot of work. Kudos to 2020brix/Quote_02/Raichu for the effort.

I hope 2000brix will finish even if it isn't a completely faithful port.
(Also whoever is harassing Maiden, suck on a lemon)

I think cave story gba/ds will most definitely work if new tracks and stages are created. Maybe, it can be an alternate universe storyline to explain the changes.

God this sounds interesting, I can't wait to see what comes of it!
I wonder if it'll become something akin to Mega Man Xtreme / Xtreme 2 (ports of X1 and X2)
