    I saw the Gameplay at the game conv with the traduction

    and I asked''What was the story of Cave story Beta''
    I thinks the story is that the mimiga,farmer of flowers.
    Are being kidnapped and givin to eat at Poo Restaurant
    The robot named Curly Brace would have been originaly created by a old scientific
    to destroy poo.
    Then he met su- a mimiga girl(or maybe boy)who ask curly to help her.
    That what I think.

    My favorite restaurant.

    Anyhow, good theory. I always assumed that there wasn't really a story in the beta and it was just Quote running around collecting weapons and points and such.

    It's left too ambiguous for us to paint a good picture:
    The theory I have is that Curly Brace (Quote), like in CS, has no memory, helps this Suu Girl who I always thought had traits of both Toroko and Sue based the of personality of the pictures and her reactions to things. Oh yeah, and just generally beats up soap boxes; we also know that there was a crazy assortment of weaponry, my favorite weapon is the spin-blade one:

    I find the beta so intriguing and I would love to have played this. The variety of weapons, the ammo you're stuck with, I find those concepts so interesting. If I'm correct there was a scientist and Misery who reminds more of Marceline from Adventure Time.

    And then there's this image too which is always cool.

    Me too I always though that the end could have been Curly finding the hideout of the old man and misery(probably the girl of the old man)
    and with su- decide to send curly with a good lot of weapons and stuff to fight Poo.
    Oh by the way,too bad that petition didn't do anything,maybe we could have played it if the game wasen't buggy as hell by the words of pixel
    (he didn't really said buggy as hell but oh well)

    One of the general plots was the mimiga trying to find the surface, where they would eventually reach the white wall (The balcony) to defeat puu once and for all.
    Presumably, they'd also escape the island and live a normal life afterwards.

    Balrog's name was originally Puu. Even though Puu Black was also in the beta.

    See, the Cave Story beta was not named Cave Story.

    See, Pixel wanted to be literal, so the name of the beta was Cave Story Beta Story.

    ....Nnnnnot really.

    I'm... pretty sure that's not what it translates to.

    Maybe not literally, but if "puu"=balrog, puu black=balrog black.

    I don't know.

    Puu was a type of enemy in the beta designed after soap. Balrog was a boss Puu in the beta (I think he was the final boss) and his name meant "king of the bars". So Balrog is a Puu. Puu Black is a Puu. "Puu" does not mean "Balrog".

    Well, obviously.
    Apparently the beta had most of the enemies be soap bars [ if i remember accordingly ] so that name makes sense.
