Cave Digger’s alternative western world adventures will expand as Finnish indie studio Mekiwi announced they are working on a major update for PSVR and PC VR. A teaser released with the announcement shows that the devs are aiming for a large game world expansion, removing the original game boundaries like the in-lift restricted game area and timed levels.
Cave Digger’s A western town full of riches, mysteries and “mine blowing“ adventures
The update’s exact release dates for different platforms aren’t confirmed yet but the studio aims it to be ready towards the end of Q3 this year.
The update gives the player the freedom to explore an abandoned mining town and its new mines, with a much larger set of mystery events and paths, which lead to different endings.
Of the decision to continue expanding Cave Digger’s mystery-filled game world, Mekiwi VR Producer Jani Kaipainen said, “We felt the game was not finished yet. We had many ideas in our mind and many also came from the community. As we got good feedback for the Elevator part we decided to move on and develop a massive update with many many new treasures and mechanics. Nevertheless, we want to show to those who have been supporting us and future players alike that we care about our community’s voice. Many YouTubers and other influencers have also been very helpful, which we are also really grateful. Also, the Discord channel is active and you are welcome to join”

The game takes place in a small town of an alternative western universe. Gear up with second-hand tools or devices – jump into the elevator that will take you deep down into the mine. Explore the rich veins that are just waiting for the honest, hard workers to whack their pickaxes at!
On the surface in the saloon, reward yourself with the hard-earned money and upgrade your tools to advance deeper. New tools open new possibilities for the brave worker: harder materials and more valuable treasures are just waiting for you behind the next block of granite.
How much riches will be enough? Will you be able to stop? What happens if you don’t?
The Answer to these questions and more will be found as you dig deeper towards the bottom of the mine.
