Description

Cavernaut is a new interpretation of the classic cave flyer genre for todays smart mobile devices. Players navigate a spaceship through a mine below the surface of a remote planet while collecting luminum crystals – the in-game currency needed to upgrade the ship – and the parts of long-lost alien relics that are scattered throughout the cave. They must dodge hazards, like laser beams or mines, and periodically land on fuel stations in order to make it to the exit of the cave.

History

Jan started the development of Cavernaut back in 2012, as a side project to improve his coding skills. Although there were many interruptions in the development process, Jan kept coming back to it, and now it has grown into a full-size indie game project, which was well received by fans and critics alike.
