Community Translation Support (v1.3.1)

This version has a bunch of quality of life changes, almost doubles the amount of daily traits, and makes a few changes to the branches. The previous_build branch has been updated to v1.3.0b, there's a new branch for version 1.2.1 since this is the last version before updating from GMS1 to GMS2.

The alternate and default branches have also been switched around. So if you previously have been using the alternate branch because it has better performance, you should switch back to the default branch.

v1.3.1 Change List
  • Improved controller prompt images
  • Controller button images shown in settings instead of names
  • Option to use Nintendo Switch button prompts
  • Inventory button now defaults to Y / Triangle on controllers
  • Chance of starting with an experimental weapon in dailies
  • New daily traits!
  • Super fun blur effect on pause menu
  • Magic Bomb Blessing now creates projectiles from more sources, and the number of projectiles is based on the size of the explosion
  • Controller rumble for Xbox controllers (option to reduce/disable in settings)
  • Fixed Medusa not triggering when jellies are turned in to chickens
  • Fixed pressing B on leaderboards menu closing & reopening on game over screen
  • Fixed some fonts being cut off
  • Should fix vsync-related performance issues people were having

About This Game


Caveblazers is an action focused platformer roguelike set in a fantasy world. Each game is unique with procedurally generated levels to explore and a massive amount of items, weapons and equipment to discover.
The game takes place in a recently discovered cave, said to hold "unimaginable power". You play as an adventurer setting out to explore the cave and find out what riches it holds. However, you are not the only one...

As you delve deeper in to the cave, you'll discover new areas to explore, new weapons and new monsters to try them out on.

Smart Characters!

Throughout your journey you will encounter AI characters. Some friendly, some hostile. We're using an advanced pathfinding system which means friendly characters will be able to follow you wherever you go, and hostile characters will be able to track you down wherever you hide. There is no escape. Be afraid!

Platformer Roguelike!

Caveblazers is a modern platformer which incorporates some Roguelike and RPG elements such as permanent death, randomized potion identities, an RPG-style inventory system and tons of items, equipment and upgrades!

Daily Challenge Runs!

Each day a new adventure will be generated! It will be the same for everyone and you'll only get one chance at it! These challenge runs give you a starting loadout, and feature a set of different traits.

Epic Boss Battles!

Between each area you'll encounter a boss. Each boss is very unique, requiring a different strategy to defeat. Bosses are generally gigantic monstrosities with life bars stretching across the entire screen. Good luck!

Character Customization!

A whole load of unlockable hats, tunics, trousers, robes, and more! Or perhaps you fancy stripping off and heading in to the caves in the nude? Go for it!

Compelling Combat!

Largely overlooked in other modern Roguelike games, Caveblazers attempts to move away from the simplistic combat systems we've seen in other games in the genre, and incorporates fun, fluid and fast-paced combat which is accentuated by the game's brutal and persistent blood effects.

Challenges!

In case that isn't enough content, Caveblazers features a bunch of challenges for the well seasoned players to take a punt at. These challenges reward players with new items, weapons & perks!
