I had the chance to ask the creator of Doukutsu Monogatari (Cave Story in english) a few questions.
His loyalty to the community of his games is big, even if there might be some miscommunication in the language barrier.

First of all, thank you for taking your time and answering my questions…
I’m a BIG fan of your works and especially Doukutsu Monogatari. To tell you the truth, when i came to the last area of Doukutsu Monogatari and saw the sign in the sky that said: “This is the end” i almost started to cry… damn, i never wanted the game to end 😦

Me: So, what is the main reason you can not or would not make a sequal to
Doukutsu Monogatari?

Pixel: I cant afford to make time, and even if i could afford to make time i would put my time to make other games.

Me: What other games inspires you when it comes to create your own game?
What is your favorite videogame?

Pixel:
I love the NES (Famicon)
The Game Boy is also a favorite.
I like action scrolling games.
I like Metroid.

Me: No suprise there 🙂

Me: What is your hobby except from making good games?

Pixel: Painting and electronic piano. But once again, i dont have any time.
The Electronic piano in the room was very cold. (Haven’t been used in a long time)

Me: What is your favorite color, animal and food?

Pixel: Gray and orange. Yellow and blue.

Me: Awesome ^.^

Me: Is there anything else you would like to tell your fans?
Pixel: We would like to make other games in the future.
