Incredible treasures are just waiting around for you to go dig ‘em up, so be sure to make the best use of all the miner’s tools lying around. However, you better look out for those nasty creatures lurking in the dark caves so make sure to carry some firepower with you.

A VR adventure game taking place in an alternative, weird west dieselpunk world. The player is a penniless but adventurous prospector in the wild northern region known only as “The New Frontier”.

“Are you ready to begin your journey? You got your pickaxe, a mine pit, and remnants of the camp left by an adventurer who mysteriously disappeared before you. Take charge of the vacant camp, develop your expedition deeper and deeper into the New Frontier, and find what secrets it holds”, comments VRKiwi’s Marketing Director, Begum Dogan.

“We strive to bring gamers a unique high-quality VR game experience in Cave Digger 2, taking that exploring unknown and mystery discovering feels with tongue-in-cheek made endings that Cave Digger is loved for, and expanding it in many ways from core gameplay to content and graphics.”

“We are doing Cave Digger 2 for Cave Digger fans, and Steam Early Access is a great benchmarking platform for the future full release as we can involve the fans in-game sooner than we could without the Early Access approach.”

“But fans who don’t game on Steam can still get involved with the development during Early Access. In fact, our Discord community that started since the first Cave Digger, have been with the Cave Digger 2 development since its start. Really recommend joining the community on Discord.
