Cave Story is an independent doujin (self-published) 2D platformer created by Daisuke “Pixel” Amaya. The game was released in 2004 and has since garnered a cult following, including some members who have composed new soundtracks for the game; Cave Story – Break Down Piano Sheet Music contains three of these fan-made compositions.
The Cave Story sheet music book Cave Story – Break Down Piano Sheet Music contains scores for the following:
– Cave Story “Cemetary” Theme
– Cave Story “Ironhead” Theme
– Cave Story “Waterfall” Theme
All of which are from the fan game Cave Story+, the most recent and popular unofficial Cave Story remake. Cave Story+ is an expansion of Cave Story for Nintendo 3DS that included new levels, bosses, and music from acclaimed artists such as Souichi Sakaguchi (the original Cave Story composer), Shinobu Ogawa, Plasma-Sound, Ippo Yamada, Yousuke Yasui, AIC Beats, Muryo Hachitani, Monaca (of the group PENTA-POT), and more. Cave Story+ was a fantastic move by publisher Nicalis for Cave Story fans because of Cave Story’s already amazing music that helped contribute to Cave Story’s status as an indie masterpiece.
