Cavern Crawler

by Amateur Labs - Jam Entry

Finally finished! It was our first Ludum Dare, and although we didn't get to polish the game as much as we wanted to, it's at least playable ^^

You're trapped in a maze by evil spirits, and have to use items lying around to avoid the obstacles and find the exit. The catch? You Only Get One item at a time ;)

Arrow keys: move
Spacebar: jump
Left-click: interact, pick up item

Made in Unity3D, all code by me, all artwork by my coworker Caspian. Audio is pulled from

I don't think I got very far, but I loved the sound effects and feeling of being in the cavern. 5 stars for mood! Let's here it for the ladies! Oh and thanks for the tip on using abundant music. You saved me! I bookmarked pdsounds too. Thanks again!

I saw nothing but tunnel with locked door in the end. Maybe I did something wrong.
Atmosphere is great!

That was neat. I think I got kinda far. I think the cavern was a little big. Sometimes is was neat to be walking down a long hallway towards the light, other times I was left wondering "how much further?..." I felt a sort of dialogue between creator and player, I enjoyed getting items and seeing how they'd be used. Thanks for the game!

Thanks for playing! I ended up throwing the actual maze together in the last two hours, so I never got a feel for how long the tunnels were. My apologies >_>

Same as 01rafael's case happened to me. I went back and forth the tunnel with no idea of what to do.

Oh, right. There's a key on the floor in front of you in the first room. Once you click on it to pick it up, you can open the door with it. I forgot I was going to make it more obvious :/

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
