• Most people probably don't realise this, but this forum has had two editors for a number of years. One is the xenForo default editor, and the other is a custom editor I made years back I called BBCEd.

If you could program a full fledged Cave Story game in less than a second, what would it have? What kinds of levels, characters, tilesets, enemies, and bosses would you add? I'm asking because I got this -amazing- Multimedia Fusion Cave Story engine from a friend of mine, and I edited it to meet my standards. Now all I need is a good storyline with dialogue, events, etc.

Where would the story take place? When? I'm low on creativity here, perhaps I shouldn't be making games in the first place, but that's why I came here. Help me out!

Looking at what everyone else has done should get the gears turning in your head!

I'm really trying to find the silver lining here, but frankly, it just doesn't work. I mean, after all the shit that has happened today, what am I supposed to say to all you people? "Man, good job falling down that elevator shaft!", or, "Way to lock yourself in the freezer!". After all I've survived today, the next room should have... strippers, and... shampagne... yeah. Man, this is all becoming such a chore. Take out the trash, wash the dishes, shoot the snot thing, do the laundry... It's a blur.

Or, you could make some kind of "play-the-game-in-reverse" mod and hope your computer doesn't explode. Backwards dialogue, kill Ballos, and try to return to the Start Point after undo-ing everything, run animations reversed, and more insanely flipped stuff.

You said HeIIo. With two "i"s not "L"s.

No. You haven't earned my ideas. They are copyright Matt 2000forever donotsteal.

Ideas are cheap and useless if you can't put them to practice, why don't you try putting something to practice?

Start simple.

Don't panic.


Actually show us something before blindly asking for help... we don't know you, but a picture or video or something you made could help...

...I think...

I like keeping things discreet about my mod too, but you have to have at least some ideas you're willing to share with the community. If you have a good engine, show it in action, even if the level isn't completed. Show us some weapons or the main character.

Okay I give up... for now

A video or two might be nice also, so that we can see it in action. You are claiming that you have a robust engine that mimics Cave Story's very well. I'd have to see a video of it to believe that it's really everything you're cracking it up to be.

Also, I hope you're not The Core.
