You’ve made a horrible mistake. A nightmarish abomination now seeks your spongy, mushroom-y flesh, and your only choice is to dig. Mine ever deeper into the procedurally-generated fungal caverns, discovering new biomes and managing your ever-depleting light. And whatever you do, don’t let it catch you.

Move with the [arrow keys]. Hold [Z] to mine. Consume fungal spores to replenish your light. Some blocks have unique properties, and the deeper you go, the weirder things get. Don’t stop digging.

Originally made for Ludum Dare 48 with the theme “deeper and deeper.”

Very cool game, I love the atmosphere. I got to 163 but I want to explore farther. :)

Love it!


The graphics start off cute, but they get darker and spookier as you go. Controls are simple, but they work well. Have you ever wanted to play as a mushroom who digs? If so, well this is the game for you.

Highscore is 50! You should add a scoreboard. Furthermore, children are my favorite snack.
