is there a way to change the keybinding?
A downloadable game for Windows
Lost within a deep underground cave system you come to realize you are not entirely alone, a strange poisonous spore-like infestation has taken over the cave system's depths and is slowly transforming all living organisms in it's path. Now you must survive and find a way out of the claustrophobic disorienting cave system before whatever lurks in the shadows finds you.

Another fun game :) the weird fart cloud thing scared the heck out of me lol. Here's my video if you wanna check it out
Thanks for playing TheNerdyNomad! Part 1 and 2!
Honestly, Love the concept, great visuals and way to play. The caves were so confusing to me though. Maybe adding some type of way towards the objective? Or if you were going for the dazed and confused look, well you nailed it lol
made a video on this it was fun and confuzing
If you watch my video you can easily tell how much this scared me.
Thank you for making such a wonderful little experience
Fun, scary, and fast. This game was awesome, I ran like crazy from this huge amount of monsters, I honestly would just remove the water part since you really can't do anything from the giant insect sept for walk slowly to the exit while it tries to sting you to death. I loved the hiding part where you can get away if you are overwhelm from the monsters and environmental danger was a cool ad on too. Yeah great work on the game I can't wait to play what you make next, keep up the great work. Oh I also made a lets play, I hope you guys enjoy.
There's also some hide spots available in the flooded water section in the end and many other places in the game but some are easier to find then others. Thanks for your feedback & for playing!
Pretty great, but it did seem to lose its edge by the end. Fewer creatures to fear the further you go.
Seems like you got lucky, the game has 10+ creatures + the boss like one in the end. Thanks for playing anyway.
If Vanish didn't make give you motion sickness, THIS GAME SURE WILL! And if you were scared at one type of monster, THEY GOT EVEN MORE!
It's like all the things that I hate wrapped into one game. Love it. 10/10 would suffer again
Hey there! Just saw some gamplay of this and love the atmosphere you created, very inspiring! I have about 8 years of music production experience and I would love to produce your music/create the foley needed to push your atmosphere to the next level. If you are ever working on a new project I would love to amplify your mix!
Hello! I recently completed a review of your game for my Youtube series “The First 15”! I’ve placed a link to the video down below, please check it out and jeep at it!
Hi, How did you do the vhs effect? I am trying to do it for my game too but I am stuck.
It took a little while but I finally managed to reach the end. That was one hell of an adventure, haha. There's definitely some scary things hiding down in those caves. I had some issues with the frame rate in some spots. It might have been related to one of the glowsticks, or maybe something on my end. Nothing game breaking though. Thank you for another scary-as-hell game! You're one of the best!
Thanks for feedback and for playing as always and congratz on reaching the ending! Just wait till you see what i have in store next! (Hint: going back to my photorealism ways for next project )
beautiful game! A proposal ... wouldn't it be better to remove the VHS filter from view? the game has great graphics but the VHS kind of spoils it .. it's just a proposition. Good game!
*EDIT* Cavephobia Full Game HD Cam Remake is now out!
Thanks glad you enjoy it. Well it is intended and a part of my style with the game but what i was thinking about was maybe doing a HD CAM Version ( imagine a newer camera etc ) So it would still make sense story wise. Thanks for the suggestion though.
Great game, man!
The game's interesting as always. Though I had a point when I respawned after I died, I was instantly spawncamped by the monster. I'd suggest moving those monster away from the player spawn area. Otherwise, decent game.
Here's my channel for other games I have played. http://www.youtube.com/c/Levont
*EDIT* Check latest balance update
Thanks for playing and thanks for your feedback! I'll look into that also remember you can save manually from pause menu so you don't have to rely only on auto, btw the reason there isn't much lore this time around is i focused only on survival horror this time, you do have a navigational compass / coordinates and the different colored glow sticks you can find ( which are from previous explorers who didn't make it ), also there is only 1 ending. None the less, your feedback is very helpful so thanks again! ( Try looking for a chain down in the maze like statue / spore area to progress ).
Thanks for playing you we're pretty close to figuring it out, in the maze like room with the spores and statues you need to find a chain going down deeper below, nice job finding the secret mayan temple room. Hope you make it out and have fun!
So you're back after the station game, I will say Thank you for the inspiration I made a game similair to this style and It got just as much attention <3
Still wating for CATACOMBIA thought!!!
This was really scary but also really fun! I made a video so I hope you enjoy it also I managed to accidentally glitched through the ceiling and saw the outside lol it's at 31:05
That was a glitch indeed, seemed due to the floor changing level / the exact moment you stood up, interesting, at least you didn't fall through anything. Anyway thanks for playing glad you enjoyed, hope you make it out for real!
Thanks for playing, oh there is music later down below, I wanted to focus on the atmospheric sounds mostly. Cheers
Medium / Decent PC.
You can adjust quality settings inside the game through ESC > Options.
This game is basically everything I hate rolled up into a well-designed little ball... So very good job hitting on so many fears at once, and thanks for sharing with us!
I was so tense the whole time.... good job, really.
Haha glad to provide the hellish entertainment, have fun and hope you manage to make it out!
Thanks for playing Max Horror!
I did not expect this!!!
What a grand, delicious piece of cake this game is!!
Wonderfully executed visuals, tensed atmosphere, well-done mechanics and most of all the unbelievable eerie atmosphere, I mean, what else do you want in a horror game!
This has been a great experience, you can definitely see me being jumped by the monster on many occasions in the playthrough. I loved the sound design too, even thou at some point I could not hear the monster, even when it was close.
The cave systems are a little bit tricky, I guess that's the difficult part of the game and it's subjective to review, so, besides that, really superb game. I will try to finish the game on my own, really looking forward to some more action, rather than just being chased.
Keep going with your work Azaxor, good good good!
Thanks for playing! Yeah Ive put a lot of work into the environment and mechanics. It is a bit hard but like you said thats part of the design, you do have a compass and some navigational coordinates, the idea is to use the different glow sticks you find to mark areas etc. Btw the map is a lot bigger then what you've explored so far and there is actually 10 variants of monsters including a boss deep below and ofc many other dangers. Hope you manage to make it to the end cutscene. Cheers! Have fun :)
