We are greenlit!
Get the game now on Itch.io!
Description
Release date: September 2016

The Caves of Midas is a fast-paced rogue-lite "dig 'em up" where you race against the clock in procedurally generated floors, dodging traps and hoarding jewels as you search for the fabled Hand of Midas, the legendary artifact that can turn anything it touches into gold.

After spending your entire life and fortune searching for what your colleagues call a fairytale, you're broke, tired, and alone. To put it simply, this is your last chance to reverse your fortune.

Never give up. Never lose hope. Find the Hand of Midas!




The Caves of Midas are an ever-changing mystery. You'll never play the same level twice! As the game goes on, each level is built to be more challenging than the last.




Death is punishing in the Caves of Midas. When you die, you'll start over from the very beginning. BUT any relics, cash, and upgrades that you've found or bought will come with you. Any gems that you lose will be kept on the level you died on. Try your hardest to reach that level and gather them; if you die again, they're gone for good. Completing every fifth level converts your gathered gems into permanent cash to use in the shop.




Not only does the shop change those risky gems into permanent cash, it also gives you the opportunity to upgrade your pickaxe, making travel in the Caves of Midas easier and faster. Get gems, trade them for cash, buy upgrades, get more valuable gems. You are broke after all.




People have searched for the Hand of Midas for centuries, leaving behind powerful relics. Their loss is your gain. Use their relics to gain protection once per game against the plentiful traps of the Caves of Midas.




Seven colors to be exact. Count 'em, seven! The further you delve into the Caves of Midas, the more colorful it becomes. Gems range in color from the common white to the rare orange, each increasing in value, and, of course, becoming harder to pick.



Coming Soon!
The Caves of Midas has been greenlit and is coming soon to Steam! If you're looking for a fast-paced, easy to pick up and play, but tough to master, rogue-lite then look no further.

The Caves of Midas should be available on Steam October 2016.

Thanks for your support and have fun in the Caves of Midas!

@Del_Duio and @PilotLumpa, thank you both for your support, but Pilot, I probably won't be releasing those stats. Sorry!

PilotLumpa Sep 24, 2016 @ 12:19pm

Del_Duio Sep 24, 2016 @ 12:07pm 
PilotLumpa, that's sort of a personal thing and not really cool to ask devs. Just an fYI. It's like asking how much money you make in something, you just don't ask it
