Halloween special update!

It was a dark and stormy night

The big Halloween special is here! A free content patch for the owners of Cave Digger: Riches DLC.

The sun has set and a cold wind blows through the wilderness. Miners of the town gather in the warm saloon to get some good ol’ booze to warm up themselves - as usually. Soon they come to notice that something feels off. The air in the saloon smells weird and the shadows in the corners are eating all the light around... Even the drinks don’t seem to make you feel any better!

Suddenly the floor of the saloon creaks and a menacing laughter echoes from the mine shaft, followed by a dreaded screeching. Maybe one of the miners is stuck down there in the mushroom caverns? The bravest miner decides to go find out what’s going on. As he jumps on the elevator, he sees a strange looking pumpkin just laying there on a chair. The miner squints his eyes and notices a sign behind the pumpkin, reading: “Eat me!”.

Eat the spooky pumpkin sitting in the saloon and head down to the mine. A new ending is waiting for you there if you manage to find all 10 pumpkins to decorate your elevator! Watch out for trick or treaters though...

Supporter's pack

Supporter’s extras are now in their own Supporter’s Pack, and the old Supporter’s Edition has been removed from the store.

The new pack is priced at $14.99 and it contains the golden pickaxe + name in the wanted poster. There are three wanted posters in the saloon, where all the supporter’s pack (or old supporter’s edition) owner’s Steam nicks are randomized and shown each time the player gets back to the saloon.

The price is a bit lower compared to the previous pack, and you can bundle the supporter’s pack nicely with the Riches DLC! Grab that shiny golden pickaxe and get mining. It is what the nation needs!

About This Game

Cave Digger is a virtual reality mining game for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows MR.

The game takes place in a small town of an alternative western universe. Gear up with well used second hand tools and devices - jump into the elevator that will take you deep down into the mine. Explore the rich veins that are just waiting for the honest, hard workers to whack their pickaxes at!

Return back to the surface to reward yourself! Upgrade your tools to advance deeper. New tools open other possibilities for the brave worker: harder materials and more valuable treasures are just waiting for you behind the next block of granite.

How much riches will be enough? Are you able to stop? What happens if you don’t?
The answer to these questions and more is found at the bottom of the mine.

"For all new miners out there, we'd like to inform you that Frontier Mining is running a special program for the bravest of miners. For a few dollars more, you get to sign a DLC, a Digger's Life Contract, after which you'll be transferred to a deeper mine to explore what's in it. You will be granted new contract-exclusive tools from the Nation's top-of-the-line research institute. DLC-signed miners widely have said that it was probably the best signing of their mining career.
