Free downloadable adventure game - The Cursed Caves

Yes! The Cursed Caves is finally complete. Please feel free to download and play it. I welcome your feedback, also.

This is quite exciting really. My first totally complete game! I hope it is well-received.

Sorry for the cheesy title of the blog post. I thought it might attract more hits with a few buzz-words in there.

Apparently, some internet security programs may think that the game is a virus. Sorry, I'm not sure how to fix that. I promise it isn't though.

*** EDIT *** I am sorry, but I think that the game will only run on a Windows PC, as it is a .exe file. This is the only way I was able to export it.


  1. Fantastic! Thanks for making this available Che. I look forward to a post-mortem-post discussing what you were trying to achieve in the game's story...what you're railing against and how you think the game breaks the mould. It took me a good hour to get all 6 endings, and there were a couple of genuinely poignant moments...it was also genuinely fun to play. Super stuff!

  2. I like it, haven't completed it yet, but it's got plenty to think about and isn't just a simple hack and slash, you have to think about how you'll face each type of monster.

    More feedback when I have time to play it right through :)

  3. Cheers guys.

    Doug - I don't want to spoil the story for people, but I'll be doing a write-up soonish.

    Ben - If you want to get through it a bit quicker - if you die three times in a level, you'll be given the chance to skip it.

  4. Hi Che, just got back from the graduate showcase in Morgan Arcade and I loved your game.
    Really enjoyed the whole show but playing a game was the icing on the cake.
    I'm a Cardiff designer who's been playing games for 35 years now so I know what I'm talking about :)
    Can't wait to get home and play some more.

  5. Thanks Adam. It's great to get such positive feedback. I hope enjoy playing The Cursed Caves some more.

    See if you can find all six endings!
