Become a cave dweller in this comical one-off VR experience and prepare to traverse this fantastical subterranean world, exploring an alternative habitat though the act of chewing. 

Exploring the layers of the earth, you journey down underground, finding hidden objects and discovering the next layer by munching the earth beneath you, and a fitting celebratory finale awaits you.

In real life, the next gamers wait expectantly, eager to adorn their headsets and costumes and take their turn. They watch this hilarious, absurd yet magnificent experience from the sidelines. 

Playful graphics, a 360˚ field of view, intuitive controls and HD haptic feedback provide an amazing sense of immersion. 

Remember – always eat with your mouth open!
