It was a free homebrew game. It was never released as a UMD. [ Here ]

It says on his site this game was heavily inspired by Cave Story and that he wanted to make a game like it but more fast paced and linear.

As well he has already stated he never expects to receive money beyond the standard donation button most indie developers will use.

And well even the music is done in pxtone...so yeah

Where on the site does he admit that it was "heavily inspired" by Cave Story? In the about he sort of acknowledges that Cave Story is a game in the same genre, but really should mention the style/music/story/gameplay/dialogue/his comepany name... inspiration a bit more and give some credit to pixel. He should also say the music is done in PXTone if it is, instead of just saying fruityloops with a plug-in.

Not to say the game doesn't look "neat-o" or anything, but it really does seem to me that he's trying to ignore the fact that Cave Story exists, or at least just push it to the side.

An Interview states he is inspired by cave story in a few places, (linked a few times from his site)

This incredibly poorly put together rant. (from all the criticisim he has been recieving)

And as for the pxtone part here

And while were at it, This shows off just how much is taken from Cave Story

Actually I take back my stance. This looks nothing like Cave Story.

(Too bad the images in the article about games he made before this one don't work. I'd like to see how this all evolved.)

Enjoy your old school games. Enjoy them all in one game. Enjoy them for 3 seconds and watch them change while you still try to beat the level.

That game is too awesome, but also very hard. Did you finish it?

Beat it, first play. It's extremely dependent on what combinations you get. If you play smart and just hide out when you're stuck with a no win, it's kind of easy.

The ending is definitely the best part.

Yeah everyone was talking about the great ending. I'll have to try it again tonight so I can see it.
