The world of CAVEWARS, Ibido, is truly a magnificent place to dwell. The surface is controlled by an evil and twisted race with immense power, and below ground, in a vast and complex maze of caverns, eight races wage an incredibly brutal war for survival. Starting out with a brutalized population subject to your every whim, a small supply of metal, and the minds of those dedicated to developing new tools with which to kill your enemy, it is your task to take control of one of these subterranean races, turn your troops into well-honed killing machines, and roll over the civilizations of your enemies one by one, grinding even their memory to dust. Only when your soldiers are drunk with victory and bloated with loot may you rest.
