While exploring an ancient temple, a hooded figure stumbles upon a mysterious lantern.

A powerful magical artifact, the lantern allows them to travel into an otherworldly cavern filled with both precious ores and dangerous monsters. They must use their limited time to collect resources and bring them back to the temple, where they can be used to craft new and better gear.

Delve further into the caves to find more riches and face greater peril. Fight a wide variety of creatures, solve puzzles, explore new environments, and do battle with fierce anomalies.

All with the goal of going deeper. And deeper. And deeper.
