Listen up, lovers of adventure gaming, Ron Gilbert and Double Fine! A brand new story is heading your way. The Cave is a 2D take on a 3D world, it features a cast of unique characters and what appears to be elements of puzzle solving, fantasy and science fiction. Hear that? That’s the sound of nerds rejoicing!
If the trailer above wasn’t enough to get you going, here’s a bit from the video’s description on YouTube:
Descend into the mysterious depths of The Cave in this adventure game from Ron Gilbert and Double Fine. Your first clue that The Cave is a place like no other will come just after you assemble your team of three unlikely adventurers–each with their own unique personalities and stories–and stumble across a subterranean amusement park and a medieval castle, not to mention a fully armed and ready to launch nuclear-tipped ICBM. The Cave is waiting.
