Press Release Kit – February 2012
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 actually demonstrate these tasks to new cavemen in order for them to learn how to do those tasks.
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 that can sleep, eat, 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 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
Reviews and Feedback
“ 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 CC 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 first CC is incredibly awesome in so many ways. CC2 tops that. Amazing job Rhys and Tim. Everyone should give this game a download! ”
- Joe Hubert, Epic Vessel Games
“ 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. ”
