Variant Interactive has Pixel’s go signal for Cave Story PSP

Shareware Cave Story

Just last week, developer Variant Interactive announced that Cave Story will be coming to the PSP. Now we receive a bulk of new information straight from Variant themselves.

Here’s a li’l back story: it debuted as a freeware sidescrolling adventure game for the PC. After the announcement of Cave Story for the PSP, a fan contacted Pixel, the Japanese guy who created Cave Story. The fan allegedly received an e-mail saying that Variant wasn’t allowed to make Cave Story for the PSP…but the info was wrong.

The truth is, Pixel doesn’t speak very good English, and for this reason he mistakenly told the fan that Variant did not get his permission for Cave Story PSP. Christopher Boyer, CEO of Variant Interactive said, “We are clearing each and every step with Pixel before we move forward on just about anything, and are about to wrap up an early build for him to preview and put his OK stamp on.”He also confirmed that Pixel would be getting a reasonable sum of money for allowing the port.

Boyer also said that they would keep the game relatively the same as the freeware version, but will tend to a few graphical improvements in order to make the game appeal to more gamers. They are looking to put in some modern graphics into the main version, but also keep the retro version playable as a supplement to the main game.
