Press Release Document

About the Game

Caveman Craig 2 is a unique strategy game featuring Craig, a tribe leader whose goal is to take over the four tribes of “Boggdrop”. To do this, Craig must buy and train three types of cavemen:

  • Hunters, who use rocks and clubs to bring down dinosaurs for food, and follow Craig into battle against other tribes,
  • Gatherers, who drag the dinosaurs back to the cave and pick berries from nearby vegetation, and
  • Preparers, who process the meat and fruit returned to the cave, allowing the player to buy more cavemen.

Craig (the player) must demonstrate these tasks to new cavemen to teach them.

Caveman Craig 2 features..

  • Over 12 dinosaurs, including Velociraptors, Pterodactyls, and the brutal Tyrannosaurus Rex
  • 35 “XP Rewards” that help defend and grow your tribe or disable your enemy. The XP Rewards include pet dinosaurs, teachers, catapults, and fully trained cavemen.
  • A whole new twist on the original Caveman Craig game – conquer the enemy’s territory to win each level!
  • Smart cavemen can eat, sleep, improve their skills (eventually unlocking a special ‘veteran’ bonus), and prioritise their tasks.
  • New gametypes, dinosaurs, bonuses, achievements, and playable characters that can be unlocked!
  • ‘Classic’ mode, where you must build your tribe up as large as possible while facing harder and more frequent threats – just like the original Caveman Craig!
  • A professional, high quality soundtrack by platinum-selling musician Ricky Garcia


Currently, Caveman Craig 2 is only available for PC. It is only $9.99 US and is distributed through BMT Micro. Caveman Craig 2 is planned for release to Mac, iOS, and Android soon.

Reviews and Feedback

“The first [Caveman Craig] is incredibly awesome in so many ways. [Caveman Craig 2] tops that. Amazing job Rhys and Tim. Everyone should give this game a download!” – Joe Hubert, Epic Vessel Games

“To all who are unsure if this game is worth buying, allow me to remove all your doubts by saying that I have almost played this through, and not once did I feel like I didn’t get my money’s worth. This game is well optimized, lasts long, it’s challenging, and has plenty of replay value. It plays 10 times smoother than [Caveman Craig SE], and has as much more polish. It’s a perfect blend of superior programming and art, all complemented by smooth professional music. WELL worth the $10 you’ll pay.” – Amos Jones, Gamer

“The new graphics are stunning, along with all of the amazing visual effects. The game-play was so much smoother than CC1 and the new features make the game more interesting. It definitely will have a great replay value.” - ‘MicHorvath’, Gamer

    Finally finished the game, and life is good! =D That was worth the wait! Now… I am really tempted to buy a Caveman Craig coffee mug… I hope the best for this game. It certainly deserves tons of attention for all the hard work put into it!

      Epic! Get the mug. Take a photo of yourself drinking raptor juice!

    I like the game a lot, only the flying birds attacking my sleeping caveman makes me crazy. Its a lot of micro managment, and when your tribe gets to big its gets choas.

    Would you recomment to keep your tribe small even if you have credits to spend?

    I’ve got great fun playing the game, but I found a bug;

    While a dino had me in his mouth, he was killed by my caveman hunters. When the dino died, craig also died. Then I just layed on the ground under the dino, I could not spend credits to get alive (the option did not show), and I waited about 5 min but I did not get alive anymore.

    Greetings,

    Soer.

    P.S. Is it possible to skip a level using a cheat?
