This papercraft is the Quote, based on the video game Cave Story, the paper modelwas created by Paperlegend. Quote (Mr. Traveler in Cave Story 3D) is the playable silent protagonist of Cave Story. His name is spoken very few times in-game by his companion Curly Brace. He is described as an "armed recon robot", built to resemble a human boy. However, unlike most robots, he and Curly Brace are fully sentient and possess a full range of emotions.
Quote does not speak during the normal game; though there are several instances where Quote communicates to other characters, Quote's dialogue is not shown to the player. In the Wii port, the player has access to "Curly Story" which switches the roles of Quote and Curly Brace, where Quote speaks a line.
Due to the fact that Quote is a robot, he is capable of withstanding huge amounts of damage if he has acquired multiple Life Capsules, which increase his maximum durability. He is also very good at jumping, as he can jump farther than any other character besides Curly Brace, who jumps just as high as him. Also, he appears to be immune to the Red Crystal/Flowers, since the Doctor would have just easily exploited that.
Cave Story is a freeware platform-adventure video game released in 2004 for the PC. It was developed over five years by Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya in his free time. Cave Story features 2D platform mechanics and is intended as a homage to the classic games that the author played in his youth, such as Metroid.
The game focuses on an amnesiac silent protagonist who awakens in a cave. Through his explorations, he discovers a plot by the Doctor, a megalomaniac who intends to force the inhabitants of the cave to fight for him in his bid to conquer the world. The protagonist is thrust into the position of savior as he endeavours to defeat the Doctor.
