Core Keeper is a mining sandbox adventure for one to eight players set in an ancient cave full of creatures, resources, and trinkets. In the game, relics and resources must be mined to build your own base, craft new gear, and survive. There are also huge monsters to fight, mysteries to unravel, crops to harvest, new recipes to cook and a procedurally generated underground world to be explored to unravel the mystery of the ancient core.

Key Features:

  • 1-8 Player Sandbox – To survive, players can team up with up to seven others to fight, farm, and cook together.
  • Mining Resources - Players will explore a vast underground cave with endless resources. You mine various materials, discover hidden crystals, fossils and other treasures and fight for survival in a procedurally generated, underground world.
  • Crafting & Building - To delve deeper into the cave, you can build your own base in the game, customize your explorer, and craft new items, armor, and equipment.
  • Grow Crops - Players plant seeds and tend the nascent crops to grow food, or combine ingredients in the Cooking Pot to discover tasty new recipes with powerful buffs.
  • Exploring an Ancient World - Explore living biomes, defeat giant monsters, and power the Core to unlock the mysteries of an ancient world.

There will be further updates with important new features and content during the course of the Early Access phase.
