    Also there's no argumentent than your just wrong
    Is it a better idea to release your mod once it is entirely done or more interesting to release a demo?

    it's always good to release a demo, even if it's just asking a friend to playtest it - that way you get a fresh experience and realtime feedback/bug reports

    If the amount of time needed to make the mod is much more than 6 months, then I think there's a lot of worth in releasing a demo before it's done, because waiting all that time with little to no community engagement can be exhausting.

    It has been a year.

    Oh yeah, I haven't waited a whole year just to realise that what I made was kind of meh, in fact I realized what I made was cool because of play testing and feedback, as the project originally (and stayed most of) started as a side project I would do when bored or had this one random idea that I found cool.

    I agree with Hayden and that scope plays a big factor. If you make a mod for the bi-monthly CSMC modfest, you have about a week (and some more depending on when the mods are streamed) to work on them, you typically don't want to release a demo of a mod that you spent a few days on, just release the thing when you're done with it after the modfest ends.

    If you're working on like a simple challenge mod or a generally shorter project, I'd say it doesn't hurt to drop demos to gauge opinions, but I think you'd be better off finishing it and releasing post-mod updates fixing bugs and such.

    For much longer and bigger projects I'd definitely recommend releasing it in parts and getting opinions and feedback on the experience. You get to see growth as both the player and the mod-producer.

    But there's a strange caveat that kind plagues modding in the CS community: There's little to no incentivization. Nobody is being paid to work on a mod and the circumstances of CS' fading legacy means the community gets smaller and smaller each year; It's understandable why several members have left the community to work on bigger projects whether solo or with a team.

    If you're making a mod long term or not, demo or full release, make it for the love of Cave Story. I think we're well past Cave Story's hype period and the community shows little signs of major growth unless a mod or CS makes it big with a streamer or Pixel/Nicalis drop CS2 out of nowhere.

    I'm unsure, there's lots of factors that go into it all. Just do your best and release what you feel like when you feel like it, don't let burn out control you, take breaks, and make the mod because you love CS.
    I've been laughing to a stupid pun I wrote in a blog post for over 20 minutes now.

    Played Cave Story 3D in actual 3D recently, from all the shit I've heard on it, I was expecting a less then stellar 3D, in the end, it works pretty well, the 3D feels pretty good coming from beginning 3DS with no help from Nintendo at all.
    The 3D doesn't really fix the issue that you have a hard time seeing characters but it helps still, I just remember a part in the egg corridor where I couldn't see a critter due to how blue it was though.
