A reader recently pointed us to an interesting bit of freeware gaming that folks may want to investigate. Titled Doukutsu Monogatari, which translates into Cave Story, this game is the creation of a Japanese developer named StudioPixel that took over 5 years to create what is described as an action/platformer in the vein of titles such as Castlevania and Metroid.
Dokutsu Monogatari is heavily lauded for its polished feel, engaging storyline, and compelling artwork. It was so well-received that folks took the trouble to translate it into English.
Cave Story is really one of those games that can be considered a masterpiece of game design. There are so many wonderful and classic gaming elements, that I cannot even begin to describe just one quality well enough to say "It is for this one reason alone that Cave Story is a great game." There is just so much effort, originality and ingenuity behind this game and it really shows more and more as you play through it.The folks behind the English translation of this title have both Mac and PC versions available for download, with separate English patches available for folks that need the additional help. In addition, extensive FAQs, character guides, and miscellaneous info on Doukutsu Monogatari can be found at their site as well.
