These Cave Story Art Prints Are Adorably Awesome

Artist and designer Baz Pringle pays tribute to one of the most important and iconic indie games of the past decade with two awesome prints featuring Quote, the games robotic hero, and Sue, a member of the bunny-like Mimiga race.

For those not familiar, Cave Story is the epic retro sidescrolling action RPG in the vein as games like Metroid and Castlevania. The whole game - story, art, music, everything - was developed by one man: Daisuke Amaya, more widely known as Pixel.

Originally released as a freeware PC game in 2005, Cave Story was eventually ported to WiiWare, DSi, and Steam with updated music and graphics. There’s also a version for 3DS with enhanced 3D graphics as opposed to the flat 2D look of prior versions.

It takes a special kind of game to float around for free on the internet for a few years before being upgraded, repackaged, and sold all kinds of different ways and STILL have people buy it.
