So, How did YOU find out about Cave Story?

How were you introduced to CS?

So how were you introduced to Cave Story? I was introduced mid-2009, I had recently bought a wii points card and when a friend came over he recommended that I get it, so I decided to take a look (neither of us knew it was free on PC). I said "meh, it looks OK... nothing special" and spent the points on something else. A few weeks later it was my birthday, and at my party someone got me a 2000 Wii Points card and I had no idea what to spend it on. I was searching the store, and decided that I might try out this Cave Story game, purely because I couldn't think of another game to get. By the time I got up to the Bushlands (aka Grasstown) I was hooked. That was my story, but what about yours?

Re: How were you introduced to CS?

I was introduced to it by my brother, soon before the AGTP translation. My brother found it by accident at vector.jp and I was instantly hooked to the funky gameplay.

Re: How were you introduced to CS?

I first found the game way back in '06. You can witness the phenomenon here:
http://www.sawbladesoftware.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=758

Second post is the link to an old broken CS download, and then my response is a few posts down. Pardon my mentally disabled child-like posting structure, this was five years ago.

Back then I think I only played up to the Undead Core and got stuck there, it wasn't until I joined MG that I actually came back and finished it.

Re: How were you introduced to CS?

In 10th grade, one of my friends told me about this game and how it's AWESOME and has the best music EVAR and I need to play it RIGHT NAO. Said friend had said just about the exact same thing about Within A Deep Forest a little while back, and he was right about that game, so I figured with Cave Story he'd be right as well. At first, I almost just gave up at the title screen because I couldn't figure out which key to press to start the game ;). If I had done that, y'all never would have met me (inb4 too bad you didn't).

Before you read: I'm european (not sure if that makes a different but you never know).

I heard there were new WiiWare Demo's, so I wanted to play them. First I scrolled to all the games. When I saw Cave Story I found it an strange name. I wasn't sure what kind of game it was, but it got my attention. I downloaded the game and as soon when I clicked on the channel I heard this.


I think I have listen to it at least 5 times before I actually started the game.

So when I began to play and saw thos rabbits (mimiga's ;)) I was confused. But as soon as I started to play, it felt so great! I loved the 8-bit style, I loved the music. Everything was so great! I have played that demo over and over.

I search on the internet and learned all those things about. Like that Pixel has made this game on his own. I was so amazed. I downloaded the game on the computer and played the hell out of hit.

So to make a long story short:

Because of the Wii Ware Demo

Man, I would have liked it if someone told me about this 3 years ago..

Re: How were you introduced to CS?

I saw that the Wii now had many demos, and I have heard about Cave Story a lot on Youtube. So I played the Cave Story demo, liked it enough to spend my Wii points on it, and became my favorite game due to it's addicting gameplay and story.

Yakkers introduced me <3

And he also introduced me to the forums. So you can blame my existence on him.

Re: How were you introduced to CS?

I've noticed that most people here were hooked after the wii-ware port... 'Guess that was a smart move by Daisuke:debug:.

Re: How were you introduced to CS?

I honestly don't remember. But even though I joined just last year, I never actually had the Wii version. Anyway, I only beat the original just last year after many, many times trying to do it. It's not that it's hard, just that I never kept my save. I discovered it a few years ago, which is :J.

Re: How were you introduced to CS?

Found it on Acid Play. First I thought it`s a lousy game when I saw the graphics of First Cave. I was already addicted at the Mimiga Village already.

We all make mistakes.....

Anyway, I found Cave Story via Deceased Crab's Let's Play around mid-2008, forgot about it for a while, and then started modding in mid 2009.

Re: How were you introduced to CS?

A friend of mine called me and gave me a 2 hour description of the game in 2008 while I was on vacation in SanDiego, "2 hours away" which means I knew about skipping booster 0.8 before I even got to that point. He sounded ecstatic about it, so I tried it and got hooked. He was a raving fan, but lost that giant interest he originally had, now that I mod, he finds my obbsession with the game, "which is now equall to his original level" to be a little wierd.

Found it back in 2005 thanks to Thomas when MiraiGamer added Cave Story to their line up.

Re: How were you introduced to CS?

I actually heard allot about cave story 2 years ago and always went “I’ll look at it later” and never did. Anywho, after another year had passed I decided I would at least have a go at it… wish I have gotten it when I heard of it all 100 times before :/

Re: How were you introduced to CS?

TVtropes enhanced my life.

Well, TVtropes and a few other places on the web.

Anyway, I kept seeing zillions of comparisons between Iji and Cave Story, so I played it.

Same here! Well, except for the modding part. I've seen Cave Story's modding language, and it gives me headaches trying to make sense of it all.
