Awesome Video Game Music: Cave Story Main Theme

The main thing that comes to mind when I think of Cave Story is how enthusiastic the game is. Perhaps nowhere is that enthusiasm more apparent than in the game’s soundtrack, especially its main theme.

Cave Story is a game that’s constantly exuding charm and energy, and its main theme is no different. This is an upbeat song that simply seems happy to be a song. It has that special joie de vivre about it that I find highly refreshing, yet don’t seem to see quite often enough. Made by a single person with a dedicated passion for video games, it’s easy to see their love of the medium permeating every aspect of it. And that’s why I like this song so much. Cave Story is a simple, fun game made by a dude who loves video games and everything about them. Its main theme represents that incredible level of passion and enthusiasm, making it hard not to sit back and smile at such a lovable tune.

I know this is a short entry- I didn't have a whole lot to say, but wanted to highlight this fun, upbeat song nonetheless! I should have a much longer piece up within the next week or so.

I wonder if it's Cave Story that first got me interested in Chip Tunes, even if it isn't technically that. I think it was the first game I played that tried to merge modern gameplay complications with that old aesthetic in a really sharp way. I'm beginning to wonder if that game was what got me fully interested in independent developers, actually.

Always good to have a song, too, that's a little upbeat. I like all kinds of music, but consuming a variety of moods is key to a healthy psyche, at least for me :)
