Dropbox link to version 1.5 (latest version - click the text)
Dropbox link to version 1.4 (click the text)
Dropbox link to version 1.3.1 (click the text)
Dropbox link to version 1.2 (Click the text)
Dropbox link to version 1.1 (click the text)
Dropbox link to version 1.0 (click the text)


Grotto Fable is a mod, barely, that's meant to pretty much add some jokes and stuff to the core Cave Story experience, changing effectively very little. I don't recommend you play this if you don't want basically normal Cave Story. I might update this further with actual changes to level design and such, and maybe this mod'll end up being like a testing ground for features I want to add to future projects. Anyway, yeah. If you enjoy it anyway, leave your feedback! It'll help me figure out what I should change and what I should keep.

VERSION 1.5 OUT NOW. CHANGE LOG IS IN THE README

oh yeah also as of right now I think version 1.5 might be the last update I make for this mod, at least for the foreseeable future

when will you new modders learn to have your mods windo- oh it's windowed. that's good.

Notes as I go along:

1. Checked out orgview to see any changes. Noticed some really nice custom orgs! I really enjoy these. I'm kinda envious on how good these are.
2. I don't think profile.dat or the manual are necessary,
3. ooh nice title screen I like it
4. oh cod is this in 60fps
5. the lighter blue splotch where the star on the polar star was is extremely obvious and I'm kind of laughing my ass off over it
6. the line of dialogue before the next transmission is perfect why does this mod continue to make me laugh so hard
7. I thought this would be another "vanilla cave story but different" but this is actually very nice.
8. upload_2017-7-12_1-12-23.png what is this abomination
9. you can download the island's map data as many time's as you'd like
10. King has quite the vocabulary. "Give me the damn key, you damn fiend Toroko!!! Gimme the damn key! Damn!"
11. After the first Cave there aren't as many jokes as before. It's slowly falling into the "Vanilla but different" category...
12. "Aw, Nartz!" Excuse me
13. accidentally inspected pot in save room. that was the best decision of my life
14. if you take the pot enough times as to where you have no max HP left the game crashes haha

Gonna end it there. It's looking really nice so far. I might continue playing tomorrow. Keep it up!

Okay so now the things mentioned should be mostly fixed and more stuff should be added in the next build, like more jokes, references, etc.

Add more pots you can inspect. It's a really nice mechanic and I'd like to see it in more areas.

I plan on adding more stuff like that into the game... Also, if you take the pot in the Mimiga Save Room something will happen later in the game.

Grotto Fable version 2.0 out now! (This is now outdated, but still the same experience minus the Weedtown song) (Also think of this as 0.2, not 2.0)

DISCLAIMER: I RECOMMEND STARTING OVER FROM THE BEGINNING SO YOU DON'T MISS ANY JOKES THAT HAVE BEEN ADDED
This version adds:
-Bug fixes
-More jokes
-Ogg soundtrack
-Weedtown section now available

I'm sorry, but if you're going to have the audacity to make a mod that's over 100mb in size, I'd appreciate if it wouldn't just be "cave story but slightly different xD"

The mod's only that big because of the Ogg file soundtrack for some jokes. I'm not skilled enough in Orgmaker to make my own Orgs, so I used Oggs instead

There's a thread full of open source orgs to use, though. Actually, some users like Tpcool or Safusaka have a page dedicated to the orgs they have in their arsenal.

I'm not entirely sure whether or not there are Orgs for the songs I want specifically in the mod, so... I find it easiest to use the Oggs! xD

Well, did you try searching for said songs?

Here's an idea: upload 2 versions of the mod.
One is tiny, and has godawful audio quality.
The other one is massive, and has normal audio quality.

Y'know, that's a great idea. Thanks for it!
