Neon Caves


Explore the Neon Caves, a fragile ecosystem lost to the world for centuries. Recently rediscovered by your research team, use your ship's anchor ability and elite implements to stabilise the cave while keeping the hostile inhabitants at bay.

An experimental off-shoot of our debut game Toast Time, with graphics by Terra Lauterbach (aka rotten_tater) and music by Joe Williamson.


In July 2013 we were approached by Indie Statik to create a game exclusively for their Kickstarter Game Pack. We like making games, and we like Indie Statik, so we said yes! The game was ready in October 2013 and was released to the backers in January 2014.

Since then, we've made a few improvements and adjustments to the game to make it TV-ready, and now we're unleashing it on Ouya. Are you ready?


  • Endless arcade-action gameplay. How long can you survive?
  • 9 unique enemy types: including historically accurate giant crustaceans!
  • 4 awesome power-ups: rapid fire, bombs, invincibility and ghost ship!
  • 28 Achievements
  • Online Leaderboards
