Cave Story creator’s new game is going swimmingly

Back in February, Cave Story creator Daisuke ‘Pixel’ Amaya, revealed that he was hard at work on a new game tentatively titled Rockfish, for iOS. It features the same visual style of its predecessors and follows the adventures of the (tentatively) titular Rockfish. It has since come to our attention that Amaya is keeping a diary of sorts as development for the title progresses.

Pixel is taking care to listen to fans’ suggestions from Cave Story. For instance, he’s implemented the ability to create up to three save files, as opposed to Story‘s one file restriction. Good for those who wanted to play through the game more than once; in other words, everyone.

There’s also the inclusion of a shop. Screens show in-game currency, though without any knowledge of the gameplay itself it’s hard to say what the shop will entail. There’s been no mention of combat, only Mario-esque swimming controls with spike traps and obstacles. However, we know that the shop is run by an adorably bespectacled frog.

Rockfish looks to be another indie classic for Pixel.
