Mountain Story Sprite Sheet by DragonDePlatino Mountain Story Sprite Sheet by DragonDePlatino

The Mimiga
Buke
Young Ballos


If you've been watching me for a while, you'll notice a long time ago I made a sprite sheet for a friend, :iconthekeeperofpeace: of his oc, The K, in the style of Cave Story. In case you didn't take that big hint, I've always been a big fan of Cave Story and it's amazing music, graphics and above all, storyline. The sad thing is that this fantastic game has never gotten a sequel despite having such an amazing storyline and easy-to-expand gameplay system (i.e. different maps, more weapons, etc.)...

One day, I got an idea for a Cave Story sequel called "Mountain Story". In it, a lone, unnamed mimiga would live in Ruin Mountain. After training, the mimiga would set out into the world to try and find survivors in the face of a horrible world-destorying incident. Along the way, the mimiga would team up with a Miruka named Buke and they would find out how to use a mysterious flying device that fell out of the sky, along the way combatting a great evil called the Red Demon.

The gameplay would compose of the mimiga travelling a large, flat overworld with many areas and a town or two in it. There's a multi-dimensional system, and portals can be found scattered everywhere between the two. Your primary weapons involve physical attacks using weapons like claws, gloves or gauntlets. There would also be some upgrades for tools like the Vertical Shot or Feather Staff. I've already designed out most of the game in Notepad++, so I'm pondering whether I wanna go forward and make more things related to this game.

Is that Ballos pre-tortured?

Yup! I've got the storyline all written out, and this is Ballos before the king tortures him and such. You can also notice he's a lot smaller than than he is in Cave Story, and that's because he's an NPC who needs to be able to walk around and go through doors and such.

Ah, I didn't give a lot of info in the description so I'll tell more about him without spoiling much.

He's a Miruka (from the japanese word "see") who begins to tag along with the mimiga after the mimiga meets up with him in Miruka town. Buke becomes curious, and follows the mimiga into one of the world portals, and he is stranded along with the mimiga and must survive with the mimiga. Buke has the ability to hover around and follow the mimiga, and he can optionally perch on the mimiga similar to the sections in Cave Story where Curly was tied to Quote. You can double jump with him attached and your jumps are a bit more floaty, and Buke will attack with his Feather Staff when he's not perched on you. He's pretty young and naive, and gets himself into trouble a lot, which complicates the story.

Commercial-quality sprites successfully imitated! Mission accomplished! :icondragonspif:

Meeeeeeh it's been years now and I really think Pixel should focus less on remakes and more on a Cave Story sequel/prequel...but don't be let down, he's currently working on remaking a game called La Mulana. If you liked Cave Story's amount of gameplay and multiple items, there's a small chance you might like La Mulana. Keep in mind the game is insane on the puzzle difficulty, though, and has little to no storyline and somewhat unimpressive graphics.

I might submit more Mountain Story stuff, and if it becomes popular enough, I might attract the attention of a programmer. If I did, I assure you it's well within my ability to do all the graphics, music, maps, storyline and maybe sound effects all by myself. I dabble a little bit in everything except programming and 3D modelling, both of which I fail at. I find this frustrating. :icondragonteaplz:

I've seen people do cool stuff just by hacking the Cave Story engine. Maybe you could look into that?

Hmmm, from what I have in mind gameplay-wise, I think that would work. On the other hand, it might pay off to make a game entirely from scratch in Java because there would be a lot of changes (i.e. Weapons use up energy, new bosses, new platforming gimmicks, etc.)
