    Yeah, I agree. Discord is great for private messages and voice calls, but I don't like public servers at all. And now that you mention it, you really can't do much lurking on Discord, can you? It's like if almost every forum ever required you to make an account and post in The sickeningly...

    I said "everything" there, not "anything". And while most things definitely should look good, not everything needs to. Sure, it'd suck to see "shitty MS Paint drawings" in a Triple-A game or a big indie project with thousands in Kickstarter money. But there's a lot more leeway for a CS mod...

    I recommend to just make the art yourself. You don't necessarily know it'll be terrible until you try it out. And also... does everything need to look good? This is a modfest mod, not some years-in-the-making magnum opus. Personally, I'm really bad at art, and don't have much interest in...

    I think the actual events in the story are pretty cool. The issue is in how Russel's backstory is presented for most of the game. He's a fine character, but most of the flashback-y scenes felt like the game was just throwing Bad Stuff at you without a clear purpose. But then towards the end...

    Your review intrigued me, so I went and played through the whole thing on a whim. Cool game in so many ways, but a lot of its fundamental design choices kinda rubbed me the wrong way. The combat was tolerable, I guess. Though to be frank, "tolerable, I guess" is as good as traditional...

    HEAD MAN https://forum.cavestory.org/threads/head-man-full-release.14456/ This one's really cool. It's like 3 years old (where did the time go?), but I'd still consider it modern. Hat Thief ~ Hahttou Thifuu https://forum.cavestory.org/threads/hat-thief-hahttou-thifuu.15436/ This one's by me...

    What is your LEAST favorite track in Cave Story?

    Agreed on Access, it's just white noise at this point. Also agree with Eli on the title theme; the first few notes are way too harsh. It also feels... too upbeat for the Plantation. I honestly think Plant would work better. It's calm, reflecting the overall lack of danger in the area, and...

    From someone who has only finished one mod but worked on (and will eventually finish?) several others, this is my process: Come up with a one-sentence story concept, a general idea of the mod's length, the mod's tone (comedic? dramatic? spoopy?) and a handful of gimmicks/ideas you have in your...

    Hat Thief ~ Hahttou Thifuu

    Thanks for the feedback, everybody! This mod was a bit rushed for modfest, which is the main reason for things like the Hat Thief's design and the lack of interaction with background objects. I had 3 days to do it, and got everything before the final boss complete. It was so darn close to being...

    Hat Thief ~ Hahttou Thifuu

    Sue wants a hat. Made for Modfest over a year ago, I planned on finishing it and never did.... until now. It's only 10 minutes long if you don't die (you're probably die a few times, though). Link: https://doukutsuclub.knack.com/database#my-mods/mod-details/5f43076aedb1200015af84df/ Any and...

    Curly's Weird Crusade

    ...So, I made most of Chapter 2 in this mod. I don't think I can do an unbiased critique of that section, *but* there are a few small things that I want to say about chapters 1 and 3.Overall, I think this mod is alright. Chapter 1 needs work, Chapter 2 [REDACTED], and Chapter 3 is good so far.

    What is the most average, middle of the road mod you have ever played?

    So I've been replaying a few Cave Story mods, and got a somewhat fresh perspective. Festive Quest has a lot of fun stuff, but... yeah, it's far from perfect. The biggest problem is the long stretches where you're just walking on a straightforward path, not doing much. Also, the villain was...
