For the next 24 hours, you can buy the special edition of Caveman Craig for just US $2.49, instead of the usual $4.99 via Game Du Jour.com!
So get your copy quickly, there are only hours left!
Tim and I are proud to announce that Caveman Craig: SE is now available for only us$4.99, processed securely by BMT Micro.
CC: SE contains new dinosaurs, bonuses, and many many more features and improvements from the original Caveman Craig, including a completely reoptimised engine and the new ‘dilophosaurus’!
Our deepest apologies for the delayed release. We hated to have conformed to what a lot of commercial companies do, however we had to sort out a few possibilities with YoYo Games which have now been resolved. As the least we could do, we have reduced the price from $5.99 to $4.99. We sincerely hope you enjoy the game!

I know we haven’t been blogging lately, this is partly the fault of our commitment to getting the special edition of Caveman Craig completed as soon as possible. However I think now’s a good time to tell you a bit more about the specifics of this special edition that is perfect for anybody who spent a good slice of their time playing the original.
Caveman Craig SE will be based on the original but with lots of added features. That is, many more bonuses, new dinosaurs, another minigame, a larger map (about twice the size!) and lots of optimisation and engine revision to ensure that the game runs fast and more consistently. The special edition will have full-quality sound, a revised and audible tutorial, and LOTS more goodies.
“So if the special edition is going to have all these extra goodies, what’s left for Caveman Craig 2?” – Caveman Craig 2 will be much different to the original and the special edition, with a focus on caveman-tribe warfare – defending your cave against dinosaurs is just one half of the game play! With plenty more dinosaurs, much more control over cavemen, and lots of mini games, Caveman Craig 2 is quite different to the special / enhanced version of Caveman Craig 1, which will be available in a month or so.
Tim and I are happy to announce that we are developing a special edition of the original Caveman Craig, as a side project for our anticipated sequel. The special edition will include:
- New bonuses
- A gigantic map
- New dinosaurs
- Rewritten engine for faster performance and more intelligent cavemen
- More tactical control of your cavemen
- Many more features, some yet to be decided!
Tim and I will be taking many of your suggestions into consideration, especially those which we would’ve liked to implement but couldn’t because of time or engine restrictions, which are now removed. Caveman Craig SE will be perfect for anyone who spent hours playing Caveman Craig and supporting us so loyally. The game will be available in a month or so, for less then ten dollars. It will likely be released with the launch of our new Caveman Craig website.
Thanks for your support
Thanks very much for your feedback on the first beta release of version 1.5. Most of you thought the game was already too difficult and we’ve put that into consideration – we understand that the difficulty angle is probably the part that needs the most work, not the actual difficulty overall.
You can download the second BETA of 1.5 below. The difficulty is significantly easier than the first BETA, and both easier and harder than version 1.4, depending on what aspect you look at. I have done a few bug fixes, most of them very small. I would appreciate your feedback on this, telling me what you thought of the difficulty angle – were you able to complete the game / receive the mini-game bonus? Without cheats, obviously.
Download Version 1.5 BETA 2 Here: http://www.autumnhouse.com.au/files/ccraigbeta.zip
We aren’t sure whether version 1.5 is too hard or too easy just yet – so I was hoping you guys would try it out for us, and tell us what you think.
The main change in 1.5 is that the game has a smoother increase in difficulty and is a bit more difficult overall. Please tell us if you were able to finish the game (without cheats obviously) in version 1.5, how hard it was, how long it took, etc. Also tell us whether you found it more or less enjoyable, etc.
After a while, we’ll make some adjustments according to your verdict and will release it on YoYo.
