A downloadable game for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux

You play as a shapeshifting cave trying to defend itself from little greedy miners that want nothing but to get their hands on your crystal.

They are small, they are fast and they are clever. They will avoid your defenses and raid your resources, while doing a very annoying little dance. For how long can you survive this madness?

Use the arrow keys to change the cave's shape and activate traps.

Hello Clayon, thanks for reporting the error.

Am I correct to assume you're running the Windows 32 bits version of Greedy Miners? Or maybe you're just using itch's desktop app? If that's the case, please try downloading the game manually according to your operating system (either windows 32 or 64 bits) and executing the .exe file.


Very fun game! A survival / game of keep away. Harder than expected, and replayable! I did a Let's Play of this on me and my wife's channel here!

Thanks so much for an awesome game!


I must say, this game surprised me. It turned out to be a lot better than I expected :D It's one of those games that's easy to learn but hard to master
