The Cave of Origin

A website maintained by Alexander Nicholi

An interesting origin story.

The Cave of Origin dates back to at least 2014, when it was created to host a collection of documents and programs related to ROM hacking Pokémon games. In May of 2015 it was revamped, moving out of PHP 5 and into Node.js 4, hosting a lot more programs as well. That codebase contributed to what became the landing page for Arqadium, which in turn spurred the continued development of other sites and pages, such as Deploy HALO and Alexander’s personal website. Nonetheless, its purpose has remained the same.
