Announcement   Announcement : Apologies regarding invalid Cave Story announcement.
   posted by spotUP on 29-Jul-2008 20:57:47 (14752 reads)
My apologies.

Due to communication problems on my part, the previous announcement about Cave Story is not actually correct.
(Read more)


I misinterpreted the mail I was sent. It was stored on my webmail, which I don't check very often. When I went to post this News Item, I couldn't find the mail as I wasn't looking in the right place, so, I relied on my memory. I accidentally mixed up two different events and e-mails that lead to this invalid announcement.
My deepest apologies for this.

Long story short, Cave Story remains out of commission as the port turned out to have a serious bug, that makes the game impossible to complete.
The bug is not yet fixed nor found, so the powers that be have decided having it out there is kind of pointless.

I asked the Moderation Team to remove the other news item as it was inaccurate. Don't blame them for the deletion, I am responsible for this mess on my own, and I am the one to blame.

Again, people, I am very sorry for this mess.

Signed, spotUP

So has the freeware file been restored to the sites that you had pull it? I think you mentioned at least one site that had pulled the file over this and a second that was going to be done as well....

I think the end result is that spot is now desperate for me to find and fix the bug so the OS4 version can be re-issued.

No, but it has better games.

Actually, i got the PS3 more for blu-ray than games, since i mostly play console games when i have friends over, and the Wii is awesome for party gaming.
