Is the "Cave Story" developer ever coming back to Desura? His profile states that he last visited almost a year ago...
I suppose that he's probably been busy with "Cave Story 3D", though I'm wondering where exactly can one check up on his work? Twitter? :S

I'm not sure whether Pixel's English is up to scratch. Japanese developers often seem reclusive because of the language barrier.

Also, Pixel is supposedly mooting a sequel, but it's very vague. See, Cave Story was supposed to be his 'retirement' game. So him coming back at all is kind of ironic.

Speaking of which, what's with the "Unavailable" status on Desura? Ever since the CaveStory+ made its way around the Desura version was taken down...

No idea... maybe it's a bug. You should ask Henley if you're worried

The reason it was taken down was it was reported that Pixel didn't know anything about Cave Story being on Desura and apparently wasn't happy. I have no idea if he knows/knew we were giving it away for free. I had just talked with one of the developers who had the source code and gave me a brand new updated version to correct some issues. I would have figured that he got Pixel's permission since he has the source code to the game. Until this is resolved the free version of Cave Story has been removed.
