The Cave

Submitted4 years ago


This is my first "complete" game. It has a beginning, a middle and an end.

This story is about a water droplet who lives in a cave. He's lived there his whole life and he's lonely and sad. He's always dreamed of helping create a rainbow, but he knows that could never happen in his tiny cave.

But maybe he'll find somewhere new someday...

Help / Controls


A - Move Left

D - Move Right

Spacebar - Jump

F - Fix key*

*Occasionally you may get stuck colliding in a block. A combination of the F key and Spacebar seems to resolve this. I apologize for this, I spent some time researching why this was happened but ended up having to work around it.

Jyrkface (Rusty Hayes) 5 4 6 3 9 4 4 4 5 Good effort! Especially for your first completed game! I really liked the backstory you used, and the level design was satisfying without ever being too tedious. I do have to wonder why you hid that song so far in tho, it sounds great! Only other note is that I did once get stuck in a block too bad to "unstick" with the F Key. Hope you find that collisions bug! :)
