"Cave Story," an old-school 2D platformer created and produced by Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya, is one of gaming's biggest indie success stories.
But Amaya hasn't seen a dime from his work on "Cave Story." He released the game as freeware on the PC. Once people fell in love, they started porting "Cave Story" to others platforms - PSP, Mac, everything.
There had been no movement on producing a proper port of "Cave Story" until Nicalis Inc. head honcho Tyrone Rodriguez decided to make Pixel a pitch.
