DLC is on the way to the Frontier, fuelled by community feedback!

We’ve been happily surprised by all the great feedback that Cave Digger has received during the past weeks. Many of you have been asking if we’re going to continue development, and the answer is yes. We have a lot of cool unused ideas for Cave Digger and the game can still be improved in many ways.

The future updates will be included in a paid DLC. Even though we’d love to give you everything for free, we still gotta eat and pay our bills. Also this will enable us to continue development. We have already started working on the new content and the DLC will be released later this year.

The main additions that we’re planning to develop:
  • Multiple endings. Some are quite straightforward, some you have to figure out.
  • Upgradeable gear: You can now upgrade your pickaxe, saw, drill etc. to be more efficient and powerful.
  • Hidden secrets for the hard worker to discover.
  • A separate competitive mode to find the hardest worker of them all.

More details about the DLC will be released soon. Stay tuned!

The economic situation on the Frontier might result in changes to the expansion plans. (We reserve all rights to changes.)

About This Game

Cave Digger is a virtual reality mining game for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. The game takes place in a small town in an alternative western universe. Gear up with scrappy aftermarket tools and devices and jump into the elevator that will take you deep down into the mine. Find the rich veins that are just waiting for the honest, hard workers to whack their pickaxes at them!

Return back to the surface to enrich yourself! upgrade your tools to advance deeper. New tools open new possibilities for the brave worker: harder materials and more valuable treasures are waiting for you just behind the next block of granite. How much money is enough? Will you be able to stop? What happens if you don’t? The Answer to these questions and more lay at the bottom of the mine.
