Perchance To Frog: Cave Story Dev’s Kero Blaster Dated

Also, Kero Blaster is kinda the latest tadpole offspring from indie legend Cave Story's design/writing/sound/everything wizard, Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya, and it looks like a rather sumptuous offering in its simplicity. It's leaping jetpacking into action - as frogs are wont to do - next month, and you can see a trailer below.
