What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Rogue-lites require what seems like an infinite amount of balance. Player feedback is essential to acquiring the so called "sweet spot". I've had only a small amount of feedback prior to the Early Access release and it's been a tremendous help. So releasing it to a larger group will no doubt make the game the best it can be.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“About 12 months. Things happen and life goes crazy but work on Cavity Busters will be consistent with regular updates. If it's completed sooner then that, perfect.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“More of everything. More items, more bosses, more enemies, more rooms, more secretes, more npcs. MORE MORE MORE. More features and quality of life additions. As well as community suggestions, achievements and plenty of polish.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game has a lot of content. Currently Cavity Busters has over 160 upgrades and power ups, hundreds of hand crafted rooms, at least 9 boss fights, and over 30 enemies. The main features are present.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“For the amount of content planned, it is possible for the price to increase. It's not set in stone.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Community is the whole reason for releasing the game on Early Access. There will be several ways for players to send bugs, feedback, and suggestions:

  • And of course, here on Steam

I love feedback and suggestions and will do my best to take it all into consideration.”

About This Game

Take control of Gummy The Soft, whose fall from The Great Gob was far and hard. Chomp your way through tough as teeth enemies and face the dreaded Pearly Knights, a true test of your enam-mettle. Collect upgrades AND diseases to enhance your agility and control over your one and only tooth. Brush and floss daily.

  • Over 200 upgrades to aid or hinder your run. Take a diseased upgrade and risk being able to cure the disease to keep only the positive effects
  • Boss fights with multiple phases and attacks to keep you on your gums
  • Hundreds of handcrafted rooms and a new body to explore every time you die
  • Challenging rewarding skill based combat. No permanent stat upgrades
  • Slow motion
  • Accessibility options
  • So much bodily fluid
  • More teeth puns then you can shake a tooth brush at
  • More fun then going to the dentist
  • Cheaper too
  • ....unless you have insurance
  • or you know someone

The Pearly Knights wont go down without a fight. Face bosses that will fight tooth and tooth to guard their... little rectangle room... But they love it and it's theirs so beware!

Contract diseases as you play. Diseases are powerful but come at a price. Do you risk the poison of diarrhea for the speed and urgency it creates in you? Leave the disease behind, and the body will consume the disease increasing the difficulty. Take entamaphobia to give all doorways a powerful laser. However, doors now cause damage by going through them. There's a creature that can administer a cure. But where and when you find him is unknown.

Use the agility and stickiness of your little gummy to run on walls to escape bullet hells. Initiate slomo to find a path through a maze of bullets. Jump high into the air to get a better view or to dodge an impossible amount of bullets. While your in the air, why not take the time to reflect on your life. The purchase you made....WAIT! That enemy is stunned! JUMP ON IT!!! As a kid, did you ever try to re-insert your baby tooth back into its gummy cavity? No? Well now's your chance! Shoot your tooth and suck back! Time it just right to inflict extra damage.

Do you hate rogue-lites? There's options to make the game more forgiving! Want to start the game with a bunch of health? Want to give yourself a little power boost? There's more subtle options that no one will notice if you use. This wont block off content though. You play how you want.

A note to potential buyers

At first glance, Cavity Busters looks like your run of the mill roguelite. However the game has some unique mechanics. If you'd like something new in the genre, I believe you'll have a deep, rewarding experience!
