It’s a good one! When did you first play it? :O
It was just after its release in late 2004 or early 2005! (oh my god it was 9 years ago) I was a regular lurker on the insert credit forums at the time (it was a place just overflowing with hipsters), and I had recently kicked an addiction to Ragnarok Online (an MMORPG that drew me in with adorable hats), and I had more or less given up gaming besides that. People started talking about a translation patch for Doukutsu Monogatari. The screenshots looked cute so I gave it a whirl.
It hit me in all the right places. It looked like an NES game that had been made with a lot of care, the controls were pretty tight and satisfying (i learned how to set up JoyToKey, because wow i am no good playing games with a keyboard). And the music and story were so charming. <3 I played it to death over a few months, getting all the weapons and endings and everything (and figuring out how far i could get with the mimiga mask on ahahaha), taking weeks to perfect the Sacred Grounds and get the Good Ending. The rush from doing that was incredible. I think, at the time I was going through a super bad depression and I didn’t understand my own mental problems, and had dropped out of college for the second time. I had enough time to do this.
When the remakes started coming around, they were pretty cool. I only really have the Wii one with the updated graphics. I’ve played through it a few times, though I’ve never been able to get through Sacred Grounds again.
I consider Cave Story a perfect experience, and Pixel an unparalleled auteur in videogames. I don’t expect everyone to think so, everyone has their own tastes and expectations and everything. 2-D platforming, guns and upgrades, and cute characters are a few of my hot buttons. There’s been nothing that has topped it since. Playing it again every year just drives that home. I have the new Wii U Mario games and I’m playing through em and they are super fun, but Cave Story is just so singular and solid. It’s hard to keep me coming back to a game, when I have an exhausting job and exhausting life situations and a strong penchant for doodling and wasting time on the internette.
I REALLY can’t friggin wait for Pixel’s next game, Kero Blaster!

I’m pretty sure everyone expected this but I gotta say, there’s nothing I’ve enjoyed as much as Cave Story since it came out.
I replayed it not too long ago, and it was still fantastic, and Kero Blaster has me all excited. <3

Okay this one’s a little weird, I wanted to draw severe fat rolls and stuff, this is where that got me.
References for a mildly creepy tanuki for Halloween, which was FOREVER ago gosh.
Saul in a D&D/fantasy/game type world. They shift around, but usually stick to Archer. If only he had better attack and defense/evade rolls…. And pants.
when unarmed, he has a deadly booty bump technique =3c
