Cave Story+ Gains Some Steam

It’s one of the most noted indie titles of all time. It’s gone from home-grown project to Nintendo 3DS, DSiWare, and WiiWare. It’s simple yet addicting, and one of the biggest homages to the 8-bit era. It’s Cave Story, and now it’s available on Steam. Nicalis and Studio Pixel have added a few extras to the Steam release.

Retitled Cave Story+, the Steam description lists these upgrades, alongside with the standard features.

  • Original (320×240) graphics and upgraded “HD” graphics
  • Remastered music as well as the original soundtrack
  • Mix-and-match new/old artwork and music!
  • Six new play modes (including Wind Fortress, Boss Rush and more!)
  • Over 20 epic boss battles through Mimiga Island
  • 15 levels to explore in the vast world
  • 10 unique weapons to find and upgrade
  • USB controller compatibility
  • Four unique endings
  • Future content updates
Cave Story+ is available on Steam with SteamPlay, meaning it runs fine on both Mac and Windows. Rated E10+, the game’s standard price is $9.99, but currently on sale for $8.49. If you’ve not played this legend, it looks to be a prime time to do such.
I can’t decide between this or the 3DS port; do the readers have any opinion?
