A downloadable cavern for Windows

Content warning: spiders!
It has been rumoured that the cavern holds the secret to flight! Explore it, if you dare...

Originally made for Ludum Dare in 2016. I'm very proud of the result, although I cheated while making it by using some pre-made code and spending more time on the project than allowed by the competition. The game had some nasty bugs and I thought it'd make sense to re-release it on itch with fixes to those.

Nice game. Reminds me of Playdead's "Limbo".

Nice spooky game! I wish there was some indication that you can climb grass, though.

Also, I got outside of the map through the floor on the right at the final room! lol


Thanks & thanks for the report!


Scary difficult platformer. Really cool thank you!

Nice game! I like how the monsters move around in the dark area, very clever design. Cavern of Flight has a strange and monotone (in a good way) atmosphere.

Not sure how to get past the first gate at the start of the dark area.

Also, the first screen lets me wall-jump off the grass??


There's a switch you're missing; you need to leave the dark area to find it. And you can you hang on any edge, grassy or not, and jump from them.

Thanks! Great game. I managed to reach the end+.


I'm also missing something, what is the input button to operate the switch?

The levers should all operate by pressing Up Arrow. I thought they had an icon indicating this, but maybe only one does. I should maybe adjust that if so...

There is no icon, and pressing the up arrow only changes the angle of the flashlight, not the position of the lever. We're talking about the one that's on the floor just up the ladder after the screen with the dark tunnel, yes?

Ah, if I understand which one you meant, you probably already turned it; it doesn't open the bars right from the lever, but rather a gate elsewhere in the same screen.
