I'd love to see that happen.I imagine a Beta release will spark new life in the modding community
And theoretically if it gets enough attention, NICALiS or someone here could pick it up and finish it and make it its own game
by the title, I thought it was a new game, no I didn't, I saw all this new stuff as well, I thought this was a completely different game (-characters and stuff)I uh... don't think you understand what this is at all.
This is footage of an unreleased version of Cave Story that was scrapped before the current version of Cave Story started development. From what we can tell, numerous assets, maps, characters and a lot of code from it made it into the final game, but the story was heavily remodelled. Pixel has stated no intention to allow any of the people who have copies of these versions to release any of them, and so out of respect they have not and will not.
Although this is absolutely incredible, just like the Doggy Wyvern footage that room_909 released a few weeks ago, this also may well be the end of the line for what we see of this fascinating version of the game.
