Cave Story+ will be free on the Epic Games Store on December 3rd!
For context, this is the same platform that GTA V was made free on.

I guess Nicalis did something good
(Also, I challenge anyone to get Cave Story+ running on lower specs than minimum)

That's nice, I now can play CS+ on my PC, without a $15 paywall, and now i also have an excuse to make an Epic account.

Wait a minute, cse2 gets taken down, then nicalis's own version becomes free in 5 days, Kinda suspicious. :pignon2:

I'm curios if they'll edit it to use the new Nicalis logo and change the copy right dates in the credits.

They usually have one free game at a time that rotates every 2 weeks or so. This is setup months in advance. Nicalis wouldn't be able to have EG do this on a whim.

Challenge accepted. I'm going to be visiting my parents soon for Christmas, and they have a Windows 98 Computer with a Pentium III processor that still works, so I can try it on that. I actually ran the original Cave Story on it back in 2013, and it runs at 50 FPS. I don't believe I ever tried CS+ on it, but I remember trying WTF? Story on it, and the graphics were badly garbled for some reason, and the framerate was at least cut in half. I'll report back when I get the chance.

Tbh, I can care less if it's the same as the Steam port, I'm just PRAYING it saves Nikumaru times instead of crashing and having all times set to 99'59"9

I can confirm that they've updated their logo in the title screen in this version. Not sure yet about the copyright date(s) in the credits.

I do wish that they would have gone ahead and fixed that screen cut-off problem in this version, it's a bother to set the EXE to run in 640X480. Oh well, still enjoyable.

I Did It On a Windows Millennium Edition Virtual Machine And I Couldn't Even Open The Epic Store, And When I Moved The Cave Story+ File via. My Real Computer, The Game Ran On 5 FPS And I Couldn't Reach Igor, Mostly Because Of The Input Lag, And The Fact That It Keeps Crashing Before I Reach Egg Number 05.

The Epic version has something the Steam version doesn't.

CLOUD SAVE

Steam Cloud called.
Eh, pretty sure CS+ isn't compatible with Steam Cloud. Because when I got a new PC and downloaded Steam onto it, all of my save data in CS+ was gone. So I had to transfer the local files from my old one.

For more evidence, it doesn't list the Steam Cloud feature on the store page.

You Said That You Were "Pretty Sure"
I said from the beginning that the Steam version doesn't have cloud save, and then I confirmed it with my screenshot. Also if I was right in the first place there was no point of telling me.

So again, pay attention.
