‘Cave Shooting Simulator’ Pokes Fun At ‘Destiny’s Loot Cave

By | 2 years ago 

Destiny has been the subject of a lot of talk these past few weeks, from the game’s massive launch, to the ridiculous time-sink that is level-grinding, to the eventual shut down (and resurrection) of the loot cave. And through it all, people keep playing and talking about Bungie’s new game, despite their many criticisms of it.

Today, a new party enters the fray with their own things to say about Destiny, but they’ve taken a unique approach: instead of voicing their comments, they’ve made a game themselves. Specifically the Loot Cave (or ‘caves’ at this point). Now, the game being a mockery of Destiny, you may expect it to include enemies or the “wizard from the moon” line, but no.

Interactive Cave Shooting Simulator is just you, a cave, infinite bullets, and all the colorful loot drop boxes you could ask for. Oh, and constant leveling, because that’s what you’re in it for, right? All that’s really missing is dramatic music playing in the background.

Interactive Cave Shooting Simulator, which we must express is a very appropriate name, was developed using a beta version of Unity. You can play it for yourself here, or you can watch the short-but-sweet video above that shows you everything you need to see. The video’s short run-time is pretty convenient, actually. Especially if you want to put more time into Destiny.

On a more serious note, Bungie is taking strides in an attempt to improve the game’s loot system. As detailed a couple of days ago on Bungie’s official site, Destiny patch 1.0.2 will tweak the behavior of engrams and probably give the Cryptarch Twitter account much less to talk about (a mix of good and bad news, then):

  • Legendary Engrams will always produce Legendary or better quality items, including Materials or Exotics
  • Rare Engrams will always produce Rare or better quality items
  • Rare engrams will have an increased chance to produce Legendary quality items

Unfortunately for those that eagerly await the loot changes, a release date for the patch has yet to be announced. But with all the talk surrounding the game, it’d be in Bungie’s best interest to get that patch out as soon as possible. Maybe it’ll also fix the glitch that spoiled upcoming raids and strike missions.

In the meantime, though, remember play Cave Shooting Simulator. The Destiny patch probably won’t make the game exactly like its parody, but you can much sooner imagine what it’ll be like to have all those item drops in your possession. Become Legend sooner.
