"Cave Story, despite being a tiny tale, is somewhat unpredictable to those experiencing it for the first time, in my opinion. The story of The Doctor, the floating island, its populace, and the soldier from the surface who winds up saving everyone…it’s all quite impressive, because the hero knows no more than the player does. But this Building Character isn’t about Quote—it’s about his comrade, the one who gives his journey its true meaning. Without Curly Brace, Quote is just a nameless hero who saves a land fated to experience the same tragedy again. Despite being similar to Quote in many ways (like being an amnesiac), I shall attest that Curly surpasses Quote in strength, resolve and character."
