    Here are just a few random indies I saved for later:
    And... there are many more... which I could add if someone is interested.

    I will admit to being curious. (Would be nice to have more games to read about, seeing as I can't exactly play anything for the next few months unless I just use my left hand, haha.)

    @Cibryll - Oh hey! Just saw your message, hope your arm/hand heals quick! I'll supply some games to read about in the meantime then :D
    Whether they turn out to be good ones or not, only time will tell~ But, I thought they had potential.

    And ones I found before that recent event:
    Whoops that's probably enough for now. Ask for more, and you shall receive

    From the steam page:

    New Features​

    This game is a remake of the 2D exploration-adventure title Ib, set in a creepy, mysterious art gallery and originally released in February 2012. Virtually all of the graphics have been updated, with many upgraded and additional effects as well.
    • Significantly improved screen resolution and graphics allow players to experience a
      classic in a whole new light.
    • Brand new graphics for maps, characters, and stills.
    • Addition of all-new and redesigned pieces of artwork.
    • Further improvements upon the original concept of making the game enjoyable for
      Players of all level through optimizations to the many puzzles in-game.
    • Brand new puzzles, effects, and tricks that were not present in the original.
    • Addition of “Zoom Mode” for improved visibility, allowing players to spot small items more easily and view the many pieces of artwork in greater detail.
    • New “conversation system” allows companions to offer hints and engage in conversation.
    • Brand new BGM composed specifically for the remake.

    @Serri - Hey Serri, not sure if this will send a notification to you, but was curious: Is there a reason I can't reply to any of your own profile posts, or send PMs? Was curious if there was some kind of option, or if something happened?

    Oooh, this is a really cool idea, I might try it out since I started getting the hang of japanese.
    It's worth a try, I doubt if in 4 days, he gathered enough beta testers just with one twitter post, I personally think you should try!

    @Mister.Hex - Argh, okay that little push got me to message him. I'll see how it goes! :D
    Got a 2019 isekai 2d indie game that had a single review, a negative one... and I liked it! Slapped together a little trailer:
    A Dream of Burning Sand.

    But I will not deny though that I also tend to shy from small indie stuff.
    but that's mostly because im concerned about how much I'll actually get out of the games, I'm somewhat picky.
    But who knows maybe I should go around taking some budget and buy some tiny name games, I'm sure there's lots of unique concepts out there in the small indie world!

    *promotes moon higher into my wishlist* < I keep forgetting about that one.
    And don't I know it. Rarely do I actually talk with friends about most indie games I have beyond a mention. I've gotten used to keeping it to myself, unless it's an exceptional or popular case.
    ... perhaps I should consider making videos to share some favorites or a thread of interesting daily indie releases... that might give some food for thought!

    I've had the thought before of having my own site so I can blog whatever game niches on my mind or post reviews and stuff so I can talk about rarer games all I want.
    I just downloaded your NewGame+ demo (specifically, this one), and there's no Doukutsu.exe, which is needed to run the TSC in the first place. How do I get it up and running?
    I tried replacing the data file with the mod file, even going so far as to rename the latter "data", but to no avail.
    Then, I tried replacing the individual files, and that didn't work either.
    So please, for the love of God, answer the following question in a way that my monkey brain can comprehend:
    WHAT THE FLYING F*CK DO I DO?
    Zierin705

    Yeah, no; I know jack sh*t about using Booster's Lab, let alone TSC scripting, and even if I did know what I was doing, I'm not very confident in my storytelling abilities (I can come up with a million synopses on the fly, but actually putting them into text in a manner that I view as "acceptable" is not my strong suit).
    I was admittedly hoping you would continue the mod so that we forumites could play it.
    Also, do you know the username of the person who said they wanted to continue the mod in your stead?
    X-Calibar
    X-Calibar
    I'm sure you could do it :D
    Hmm... Well I found the DM, it was @bobbyis. However our last conversation was me saying I might continue the mod if he hadn't. ...Guess I forgot that. Hmmm.

    (Btw, have you played the Fourth Ending mod by HaydenStudios? https://forum.cavestory.org/threads/cave-story-with-a-fourth-ending.3832/
    That is along the lines of Cave Story but new possibilities.)
    Well... how about I'll message you if something new gets made~
    And on an unrelated note: I wonder if there are any mods built with the Cave Story multiplayer version in mind?
    Zierin705
    Zierin705
    Preesh! :3
    Also, the only reason I haven't played the Fourth Ending mod past the kidnapping scene is because, well, I'm a completionist, and I'm worried that the 17 minute timer might impede my ability to grab things like the Bubbler and an extra jar of Jellyfish Juice (not to mention all of those Life Capsules).
    Whoa, first profile picture change (other than that crabular joke) since before I joined these forums!

    While not THAT much of a change, if enlarged you can see how a few filters changed things. And while I like the colors of the original, we are talking about the Core Base lighting...
    But yeah, we've had our avatars forever!

    On the opposite end, here's a game with little directly told story; but great atmosphere (that art and music,...) and vitally important, the gameplay. Fighting the horde on the hardest difficulty was a lot of fun after surviving long enough to get upgrades...
    On the hardest difficulty, I went into the difficult areas first to search for upgrades, and then returned with my new-found abilities to conquer the early stages... Good times...

    From Daniel Remar's collection of free indie games:

    Iji is a classic imo, Hero Core is great, and the rest are quite different and fun. Iji is always worth plugging once!

    Here's one I bought soon as it was released (which I often don't do...). Followed it for years during development. Wasn't disappointed!
    Iconoclasts.
    For the 4K images, what settings did you use in AI Gigapixel?
    X-Calibar
    X-Calibar
    Hey~ Assuming you mean something like bkBlue for instance: https://www.cavestory.org/forums/media/bkblue-comparison.2954/
    Can't say for sure, especially since AI Gigapixel has changed a lot since then, but currently I usually start with 6x resolution, Face Refinement Off, Supress Noise 0, Remove Blur 0. That usually gives a pretty interesting starting point. After that, I might open it in Topaz Sharpen AI to give it a little boost, and then proceed to get some filters going in Topaz Studio 2 or Adjust AI. Having more interesting layers to work with helps when I open everything I've created so far in Photoshop, and pick and choose and blend as I wish. Once I choose a direction, I begin touching up by hand or using the tools in PS to fix it up.

    Woops, sorry for the late reply.

    This is legit one of the best renditions of Moonsong I have heard! And I've heard quite a few. But your version really pumps it full of emotion. I'm not sure how, but it's not just 'oh it sounds nice', you managed to really convey that wondrous, expansive feeling through your instruments. I am so glad you made this!
    X-Calibar
    X-Calibar
    Thanks... that does really make me happy to hear you liked it! It is incomplete, at least not where I intended to stop (I have a habit of doing that with all my projects), but regardless, glad you enjoyed it :) Yay!
    I'll tell you if I do another~!
    Guess I should give up on getting 60 fps Cave Story 3D working for now... wasting too much time without results :/
    X-Calibar
    X-Calibar
    Tried both haphazardly searching for values, switching between throne room title screen (runs at 60 fps) and after loading game (30 fps). Changing stuff around in cheat engine (seems like most games use the same 4 byte fps values. 0 = 60 fps, 1 = 30 fps), caused a few things, but no FPS change. Next tried to follow a tutorial, but apparently there wasn't a fps string in CS3Ds code... I guess.

    btw, itch.io has a gigantic bundle going on right now. 1,658 games in it? For 5$? Not sure about it supporting this community bail fund bit, but that's one heck of a deal.
    DRM free, no steam keys.
    I keep forgetting, 3 free indie games on epic till the 19th: Anodyne 2, A Short Hike, Mutazione
    Flake
    Flake
    Anodyne 2 for free, huh? Looks like I'll be playing that game after all.
    Horace free at Epic Game Store till the 23rd!
    X-Calibar
    X-Calibar
    Looks like a worthwhile game to mention. Haven't gotten around to playing it though. Tell me how it is if you do try it!
    Sundered free at Epic Game Store till the 16th!
    X-Calibar

    I personally liked this game. The atmosphere, music; fighting the horde. Though may not be everyone's cup of tea. It can start out hard, but gets better and better imo. Of course, there have been updates and changes since I played... But, hard to argue with free.

    Oh, I wish I'd been here to hear of this. I really dig Sundered but never picked it up, and I suppose I can wait given my sizeable backlog.

    (That said, I should probably actually get the store so I don't miss future freebies ^-^' )
    I think Celeste will be free tomorrow on Epic Game Store!

    Ahh, yeah. I hope you beat Farewell! That chapter is really fun, really long, really hard, and has probably the best music in the game! Enjoy it :)

    I finally got around to finishing it! So frustrating, that final section was easy, but failing at all meant a huge amount of perfect repetition. Gragh!!! Didn't go for the moon berry, which is apparently a thing. Might do it later. But, yay! I can finally move on lol (And yeah, some of those sections + the music = just fantastic.)

    Worst death: I finally beat the finale and then I accidentally tapped dash during the passing sequence, before reaching the end. THE DISBELIEF IN THE ROOM AT THAT MOMENT
