A little (Pico8-sized) project my brother and I have been working on. We are huge Cave Story fans, so building a demake was kind of a childhood dream come true. It never ceases to amaze me how much can be done within the (wonderful self-imposed) limitations of the Pico-8 engine.

It has no real ending as-of-now, we might add that in later. But for now, enjoy! If you want to see some of our process in creating this, we vlogged about it at DoubtfulGames

Health resets back to 3 after changing rooms. Similarly, the Life Capsule returns to its place, allowing you to upgrade back up to 6.

The first cave's camera is starting in the wrong place. It starts way up high and then drops way down low, far under the level. Might want to look into that.

Yeah, I've seen that bug, but I haven't figured out what causes it. I'll look into it when I get the time. Thanks for the note!
