The game is out now!
TWAC releases on 8/10/2015!
Release date: First Quarter 2015.
There Was A Caveman is a prehistoric themed, retro styled, action platformer. Expect no gimmicks, just a challenging old-school like platformer, where there's only you, your club and your skills. The game is greatly influenced by such classics as Castlevania, Ghouls'n'Ghosts or Shovel knight.
The world has been overrun by dinosaurs. The last living caveman, is left alone in his cave, with every other living thing he knew dead. But he does not want to give up the world to these ferocious beasts. So with what little hope he has left, he will venture out of his caves, to find the only thing, that could save the world as he knows it - A female specimen to rebuild the cavemen civilization. But doing that won't be easy as the world is full of these dangerous creatures and other deadly hazards!

The game features -
>Awesome pixel graphics and animations.
>Strong core game mechanics, with stable platforming, dashing, variable jumping, friction etc.
>Challenging areas to go through, like dark caves or forests.
>Lots of dinosaurs to fight of including T-rexes, Pterodactyls and Diplodocus.
>Throwables to collect like rocks, bones or javelins.
>Javelins that stick to the wall, and you can use as platforms.
>Swimming and underwater areas.
>Lots of hidden things, and secret places to discover.

The game is still in development, and it is not feature full, lots of things like visuals and mechanics of the game can and will still change.
There are lots of things still on the 'to do list' like -
>More areas, like the ice caverns, deep oceans, marshes, or the spirit world full of dinosaur ghosts!
>More dinosaurs and bosses!
>Riding the dinosaurs.
>Visual improvements.
>Sounds and music.
>and other things!
