CaveStory Logo


Cave Story (doukutsu monogatari) is a Freeware Platform-Adventure Video Game Released in 2004 for the PC. It was developed over 5 years by Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya in his free time. It is one of the greatest most beautifully crafted games, particularly because of its compelling plot and musical genius.
