“We have worked hard to present you a taste of what is coming later in the year. Now you can form your squad, or go solo, to face the challenges of the first biome in the game. Be among the first to play Cave Digger 2”, says Jani Kaipainen, the Head of VR Publishing of VRKiwi.

“Also, here’s a useful tip for those who haven’t played Cave Digger 1. To celebrate Cave Digger 2, we will run gigantic discount sales on Cave Digger 1 in major game stores this summer. If you’d like to support us, probably the best way would be to spread the word about us”, concludes Jani Kaipainen.

During the fest, the game will be streamed on Steam and on the publisher’s Twitch channel at twitch.tv/vrkiwigaming. Cave Digger Discord channel is at discord.gg/cavedigger and to install Cave Digger 2 Steam Next Fest build, go to its Steam page here.


About Cave Digger 2: Dig Harder


Cave Digger 2: Dig Harder is a VR single/multiplayer co-op adventure game taking place in an alternative, weird west dieselpunk world. The player is a penniless but adventurous prospector in the wild northern region known as “The New Frontier”. As the player excavates the mountains of their claim, they encounter many mysteries along the way, and only two things remain constant: the North is cold and the Frontier guards its secrets well.
