    Well, where do I start ..? I think I'd better let the game say it all by itself. It was a lot of work for me to do and redo the whole game of Daisuke, alone (It doesn't means that I'll remake all of his other unreleased games). I chose this unreleased game because I thought it would be cool see a game that put Cave Story and Ikachan together. And that's the result, and the download link:
    Screenshot 1.png Screenshot 2.png Screenshot 3.png Screenshot 4.png Screenshot 5.png Screenshot 6.png

    Again, the credit won't go to me. All the credits go to Daisuke Amaya to his idea and Dev Logs information. The remake contains some custom graphics, music remixes and PiyoPiyoPlayer music remixes too. I hope the game has been fun and interesting for anyone who plays.

    Hello, just played through your demo.

    I assume that this is a complete remake of an unfinished game, and you had only Pixel's Development Logs to base off. (If not, I apologise.)

    This is well done, I'd say. It keeps the spirit of Pixel's other games, and really feels like there is a transition between Ikachan and Cave Story. Looking forward to playing the full version.

    The level design is nice, but it's pretty spacious. That might have been based of Ikachan's wide open maps, but it's pretty slow to navigate though. The Ducts help to remedy this issue, though, and I like the statues hidden inbetween.

    The graphics are nice, too. The Gray areas could have be done in a bit more interesting way (more decorations, or more different blocks, perhaps?), but otherwise it all looks pretty.

    I do think that the Booster sound effect can be removed (possible with SeaTone), or replaced with something else, but if you plan to add something like Booster 2.0, then it can stay.

    I have noted and recorded the grammatic mistakes in the script, you can see them below.

    Observations are here. The text is in the ReadMe file.

    Oh, thank you for the reviews and told me the issues. All the grammar mistakes occur because English is not my native language. I'm still learning a lot but okay, I can fix these problems. I will fix the issues soon. ;)
    Edit: Changes done! Fixed everything and updated the post.

    Bumping into certain objects and having them display tips over and over gets annoying at times.
    Like the boss battle and the hatched egg shell, or the statues and going after the coins.

    It's inspired by Ikachan's interactions, but okay. I'll fix it soon.
    Edit: The issue is fixed and the link was updated!

    This looks so cool; I'm definitely going to get around playing this!!! I love the new texture and tilesets you put into the mod judging by the screenshots. :)
