Inspired by the previous XEXEX picture by DynamiteManEXE, I decided to go full on Cave here. I'll let you figure out the references. If you can't, Google things like "Cave bug girl" or, I'll give you this one, "Esprade". Or even "Cave shooting games" because I'll guarantee you'll find them all that way. Long story short, I love this company. It's a shame it had to go the way of "we're just doing mobile in Japan now". The games aren't even made by the same staff so all the post Saidaioujou efforts feel — unsurprisingly — devoid of magic.

All that said, Cave? I recommend. Or rather, I reco-mmend, right? And if nothing else, just listen to some of the soundtracks from these games, especially anything Manabu Namiki is attached to. This is the style of music I must have in my (larger effort) original games.
