    Thread moved to Gaming & Leisure.

    You might have more luck here, but you'll need to give more information. What have you tried so far, what errors are you getting, and specifically what you are confused about would be a start.

    Ah, sorry about posting in the wrong forum.

    I, and my friend have downloaded cave story from the following link below:

    http://www.cavestory.org/downloads_game.php

    edit: What I'm confused about? Eh.. when looking it up, It just confuses me on what will happen after I do it- Will ubuntu break? Will something bad happen? So i just sit there and think, should I do it???

    I'm getting no errors (from what i've seen), When I run it, It just opens gedit from my point of view

    My friend doesn't know why :/

    The Linux version is 7 years old and unsure if it would work on current releases.

    As it's a tar.gz file, you would install like others. There is VERY little info about installing, compiling or anything else on the website you link to and there is no README with any info in the download. I don't know what the 'Misc>DoconfigureforLinux' is all about, but maybe that has something to do with installing it.

    Good luck.

    Yep. If you go that way and have any further issues with it in Wine, might be beneficial to post a new thread in the appropriate Wine section HERE.

    cave story plus was in a humble bundle a while back, why not just buy cave story plus?
