Indie Gem

As many of you know, the Steam Summer Sale is going on right now. I bought the fantastic deal that was the Indie Bundle I mostly for the title ”Lone Survivor” which I have been very interested in for a while (it is very good by the way, might post about it later). What I did not expect was how much I would enjoy another game included in the collection called “Cave Story+”.

I had heard about this title back when it was a flash game but had not noticed it much before now, and had never played it before, but I am loving the experience so far. I was skeptical at first but the more I played the more I came to love the atmosphere, art style, and gameplay. Even the music is great. The hub world track is so enjoyable that every time I returned I found myself getting lost in its melody. The puzzle-solving aspects are fun, the boss battles are great; hell, all the enemies are cool. I enjoyed the multiple weapons and their basic leveling system where you lost experience as you were hit. It is overall a world where I just want to spend more time.

I know I am late to the game and pretty much everyone has already played this title, but if you are like I was and have not given this game a second glance, I cannot recommend it any more highly.

tl;dr Cave story is awesome.
