The “Other” Cave Story On Xbox Live Arcade


If you didn’t already know about Cave Story, chances are you do now, after last night’s reveal of the NIS America-published Cave Story 3D. But did you know there’s a “cave story” on Xbox Live Arcade as well?


Titled The Maid-san’s Caving Adventure, the game’s official description reads: “A maid wandered into a cave where the Benars live. Can she escape the cave safely by using her specialty "trembling" to get away from them?”


Developed by Japanese indie developer, Kohei, the game costs 80 Microsoft points to download. You can also try a free demo of the game.


And in case you’re interested, also by Kohei, here’s…Shooting Chicken Revenge.
