Cave Story (洞窟物語) TAS in 50:10.3 by nitsuja with author's commentary
This is, without a doubt, one of the most eagerly anticipated runs since it became possible to TAS Windows games. Cave Story, made by Pixel in 2004, is a famous indie game notable for being made entirely by one person. You can download it for free here: http://www.cavestory.org/
This playthrough saves Curly and finishes with the best ending after beating Ballos. The author's commentary is included.

To those asking about the fourth ending: that's a fan-made hack. It's not in the original game. The video depicting it as a real part of the original game was an elaborate April Fools prank. (The fourth ending referred to on the Steam page probably refers to the Mimiga mask ending.)
