A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

The Spooky Cave is a modern take on classical rogue-like RPGs. The traditional tile based movement has been removed but, the ability to stop the game when you stop inputting controls remains. I am attempting to introduce streamlined gameplay while also increasing the depth of combat and interaction. It's hard to explain the game feel without playing it, so just give it a shot, and remember dying is fun! :)

move = wads/mouse-middle/l-stick

sprint = shift/l-bumper

point weapon = arrows/mouse/r-stick

shield = space/rightclick/r-bumper

inventory = tab/back/select


version 0.37

Looks really cool.

I have an issue with my gamepad though. If the gamepad is connected, the time is running constantly. Also, the right stick works only in horizontal direction. Left gamepad trigger moves the weapon horizontally. I suspect I need some kind of axis remapping, but not sure how to achieve it.

Gamepad: Logitech F310. OS: Ubuntu 16.04.

Nice game, but I miss something. I don't know how much health I have left and what weapon I should choose. Do they deal the same damage?
