We also have to welcome our new patrons, the MASH OP team, a branch of the associated Bat's Studios. Although they're veterans here, their musical project is brand new, a quest to mix up the best electronic tunes in the business, everything in an "80s Retrofuturistic Synth Wave Perspective". They are working hard to release new mixes weekly, but these things are pretty difficult, considering the videos use the same NEON™ technology that PRESS PLAY has been using since CAVE 2.0
Next up, is the FEATURES section. Now you can see what you're missing out on if you're a mobile dweller and you can also follow the short tutorial there to get your very own CAVE app on mobile. A new favicon brands the site and fits in with the mobile app just lovely. You can check out some screenshots there.

More special edition playlist coming soon on thePLAY®-LIST site!
A limited special edition theme has been fitted on for Cave's second birthday. The dark theme combines the minimalist, new design of 2.0 with the dark background and white font of the original site. The result, we let them speak for themselves.
Cave 1.0 vs Cave 2.0 (dark theme)
We are giving away free digital copies of Sarah Andersen's first comic book, Adulthood is a Myth. Sarah Andersen is a cartoonist who has become popular on social media for her simple, funny and accurate short `scribbles`.

So, how does this work?
First of all, PLAY replaces the radio from the desktop versions. It's a way to listen to the best music on your android/ios browsers easier. PLAY is an ever-growing database of hand-picked music, featuring a new tune every other day. The algorithm is extremely random, so there'll be music for all tastes. On Thursdays it celebrates #TBT by picking old classics to spotlight. Also, all the songs are added to a Youtube playlist that is available here.
The new cave logo is so popular that we received many requests for new designs from our partners. We decided to start with Bat's Studios logo. We thank you for your helpful feedback. It made us work harder and better.
We started with a cinematic 3d font:
And then we added the kicker:
Some finishing touches and a dramatic crop:
We've come up with a new logo, one that is more recognizable and suitable for small screens. We got rid of the name, just left the initial artwork as the centerpiece and got an esoteric crown for it. The clean, simmetrical background is not as saturated as the last one. All in all, a perfect fit for the new site.
The initial artwork was a psychedelic and esoteric rendition:
The first color version had a red circle and black symbol. The sun was also present:
Here's the logo in its final form:
We've put together a playlist for the YouTube views contest this week. The playlist with the most views in the next 7 days will be featured in the next GTA Online livestream. So, share this link for a chance to win a Steam Controller!
Do you want to see more? If you do, what games should we play? Online or singleplayer? Stream or upload? Post your answers here or on Youtube.
Many things have changed once we finally managed to optimize our mobile port. First of all, changing and updating the playlists just become a whole lotta easier. The logo got a fresh paint, and gifs are working on all platforms. Autoplay has been turned off, so you have to turn on the music manually if you want to listen to the tracks (both on desktop and mobile). The song will not change and will continue even if you visit other pages on cavestudios.weebly.com platform. So feel free to explore. If you have more ideas or suggestions for improving the site, adding new stuff, types of videos, music, leave a comment here.
Crimson Playlist now on mobile!
A new update has been rolled out just in time for the love season. As we usually do, we are celebrating major events with a few goodies. This time, all through Valentine's Day and International Women's Day, you will be able to listen to our brand new playlist featuring the biggest collection of music we've ever put together on cavestudios.weebly.com . Ranging from the classic slow love ballads to the brand new hippy heart tunes, the "Crimson Playlist" will surely be your romantic jam this year. Some of the songs are so rare you've probably never heard them before. But they're sure as hell bound to make your 'so' fall in with your musical taste. Cave Radio starts automatically when you load the page, at the bottom of your screen. Just click/tap play and a random song will start every time you enter the site :) Enjoy!
Love is in the air. At least if your speakers are on.
You asked for it, so here it is. Our very own music mix featuring a genre-spanning collection of songs. We brought half an hour of great music for your hungry ears. There is only one catch: the next mix will only be uploaded when this one hits 100 views. So, keep on sharing it guys.
We hope that 2016 will see your dreams become reality, or be at least as good as the last one. We've packed the festive skin and got back to the tropical theme, this time using the 2.0 "ideology". Lots of palm trees, sand and sunny faces.
Christmas is here.

“You have a good chance at making some of your wildest dreams come true. Most people don’t even try, sadly. Most people try and then stop or give up. Very few people try, and try, and try or do, and do, and do and never give up. And those are the people that ultimately succeed and win.” - Jared Leto
Let's talk about places that we dream about. Below we have a splendid video from 30 Seconds to Mars about the city that fabricates dreams, and at the same time crushes ten others to harvest resources. In the clip, several Hollywood stars, from famous actors to street performers, describe their feelings about this great city and why we, the average citizens should hold on to our dreams of working at McDonald's on Broadway and shouting at passing celebrities. Kanye West is in it. First face you'll see. Yep. Enjoy. The clip is copywritten so we are giving you a link for it.
The Christmas playlist has been updated on our YouTube Channel. You can find all the 25 songs that we feature on the radio. Click here
Weekly updates. We promise.
It's our proof that you like what you see.
