This is an excellent freeware game, translated to English in February.

Windows: http://agtp.romhack.net/doukutsu.html
Mac: original+patch
Linux: No port!

If it can be ported to OS X, shouldn't Linux be easy enough? Please, someone examine this at least a little :(

Regarding this game, it seems that it has gotten the platinum score in Wine. The only thing reported glitchy is that it doesn't work while in windowed mode. How do you get it into functional full screen? Thanks guys!

Amazing game, I have played through it with wine (newer versions), without any problems.
You can select full screen in DoConfig.exe. If you want it in window mode, just set the virtual
desktop in winecfg and it should be fine. In fact even my gamepad worked flawlessly.
So enjoy it, it's a good game :)

Somewhat old topic, but there's a Linux port now! I found out about the game (and the port) today, and boy is it a sweet game. Lovely music, old-school graphics and gameplay and a beautiful story. A must-play for any platform fan.

Post of the person who ported it: http://community.livejournal.com/doukutsu/101690.html
My personal mirror (in case his goes down, he stated he won't host forever): http://jurrie.net/files/doukutsu-linux.tar.bz2
Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cave_story
Interview with author (fun read): http://www.tigsource.com/features/interview_pixel.html

He didn't release source code since he isn't allowed to (or so he says). I don't know the details, but it worked like a charm on my system.

I know this is an old post, but it deserves a bump
