Radioactive Trove


Valkoy Radioactive Trove

Made by Valkoy

Radioactive Trove is a short, atmospheric sidescroller set deep underwater, where you aim to retrieve dangerous cargo trapped inside of a sunken research vessel.

The officials gave you little intel on the mission, but you know enough to bring a sturdy diving suit and a specialized hammer. Vision is limited. Do your best to survive.

Jam

Radioactive Trove was made from December 13 to December 21 for DreadXP Dredge the Depths Jam. The game is short due to the limited duration for development. We would love to hear about your comments and feedback, as well as any bugs you encounter during play.

Playing with the native build instead of the web version is recommended for performance and improved audio latency.

More Games

Radioactive Trove was made by the artist Valkoy and Thuleanx for sound and programming. We've made some similar horror-themed games (and even more on our itch page), if this one happened to pique your curiousity:

Within the woods: a platformer about a racoon lost in the woods, inspired by Baba Yaga.

Poiura: an atmospheric top-down shooter about a baker unraveling the horrors beyond the edge of his small town.

You have a gun, but it's not as simple as killing them. These things are unstoppable. A gun will only buy you a precious few moments to get away.

You will not survive your first attempt, but you will learn.

Gauge their movements

Learn the layout of the prison.

Learn where to hide and how.

Map your route.

Learn the possible locations of each item.
