A downloadable game for Windows

Download NowName your own price

Cavey (Cave-ey) is an actual totally historically accurate VR caveman simulator.

I made this game within 72 hours for Ludum Dare 36!


There's a Non-VR spectator-only version for people without an HTC Vive or Oculus Rift + Touch hardware.

It's less fun but you can watch people play the game.

The entire game is multiplayer and networked completely, there is no single player mode and there is always-on voice chat. You have been warned.


Grip+moving controllers makes you move forward in the direction you look, hold both triggers to "grab the air" which you can use to jump/hop forward/sideways/backwards, and you can climb anything you can reach!

There's no "aim" to this game, you just play being a caveman.

Have fun. :)

Hey is there an option to get rid of the distoration on your voice?, also I was wondering if you will still be updating this, and what are the things you can "craft" I've only managed a bat then a stronger bat...

(Edited 1 time)

There's more to craft!

But I currently don't have plans to update it more, it was a quick little jam game and I have a game about to launch on steam I'm working on, sorry.

I may do a quick update to remove the distortion though.

I'm really hopeing your new game has as good of movement as Cavey, it makes you feel so free and powerful. I would buy a full Cavey game for sure.

What is the game that your uploading on steam called I'd love to check it out? (also I what are the other things to craft? I often don't figure out what I'm supposed to do in vr games.....)

The game is called Climbey :)

Other things: unlit campfire, spear, axe, sparks from stones to light the fire hah, that's about all I think.

I did a video of this, and it was so much fun! I wish you could drag the camera around when you're in Vive though! ^^

Make A NonVr Version With Controls Please And Thanks!

i cant launch it but the game looks pretty cool in the videos

No VR here, so I just tested the NoVR version, which unfortunately has no controls :)
