Serious Cave Story vibes come off One Dog Story


Cave Story is so revered among indie game enthusiasts, it’s little surprise it would be cited as an influence for others making a game. One Dog Story lists it up there with others like Battletoads and Shovel Knight.

One Dog Story is about a lab dog — that is, a dog that has been experimented on, not a Labrador — exploring its way around a new environment trying to discover who it is. Along the way it picks up a gun that deals a little bit of death along with a lot of particle effects.

Developer BigWay games is seeking a modest $30,000 on Kickstarter for the project, and has projected a release date later this year. One Dog Story has already been in development for almost a year, so hopefully it just needs a final push to be completed.
