I plan on making a mod for Cave Story, changing the characters mainly, but I'm considering changing the textures as well. I have two ideas in mind, but I'd like to hear from the Cave Story community.
The questions will be closed within 5 days.

I'd love to see an artistic re-imagining of Cave Story in HD using the dll mod loader...
Like what they did with that Wonderboy remake:

Other than that, maybe a new holiday or similar theme makeover might be enjoyed.
Different seasons of Cave Story?

Oh, changing the characters...?
You could give Kazuma glasses so he doesn't have to squint all time...

Darn it, I'm too late. It would have been cool to see something with a new story - something with a rarely touched idea or something like that.

Giving Cave Story a new story isn't really anything new. Is that what you were saying?

Yeah, but... newer than new. A new game in the CS engine.

Making a new story would require me to have to make different events, different characters interacting and possibly new caves/sections replaced with old ones to better fit the story. And all I'm trying is to make a graphical rehash for CS, but one day I'l consider it.

I see. Yeah, that takes a lot of ambition.

It's easier and harder at the same time if the story and characters have nothing with Cave Story.
