25th of March 2019 - Are you thirsty for an adventure with a pinch of mystery, dark humour and full of appealing tools which opens new possibilities for the brave miners? If yes, prepare to get your hands on Cave Digger on PlayStation VR!

MeKiwi announces their VR game Cave Digger for PSVR after its huge success on Steam, Oculus, Microsoft and HTC Viveport stores. The game has already been available in English PlayStation Stores since last week. Rest of the European and the American region will get their hands on the game on 25th. The game is released with a very competitive pricing.

The PC version of CAVE DIGGER has launched on PC platforms on May 2018 and since then collecting very positive reviews in all of the stores and been on the spotlight of many famous game Youtubers all across the world. The mining craze seems likely to take over PSVR players as well.

The casual yet mysterious mining game offers multiple endings depending on how you choose to upgrade your tools or what mysteries you pursue to solve. The player starts just with a regular pickaxe, but can quickly purchase more effective tools. The most outstanding tool being the chaos gauntlet, which is powered by powerful gems found in the cave!

Mekiwi’s COO Jani Kaipainen added: “We are very happy to reach players in each store, now in PSVR too, but our excitement doesn’t end here! We are working on a very big expansion to feed the hunger of quality VR content hunters out there and now is a great time to catch this game and get familiar with it!”

The expansion will be free for all CAVE DIGGER owners, regardless of the platform. The update aims to lengthen the gameplay with several hours and adding completely new mechanics and ways to play the game.

Now grab your pickaxe and go to the Frontier! The Nation needs you!
