Ron Gilbert & Double Fine Announce The Cave

The collaboration between adventure game deities Ron Gilbert and Double Fine has been officially announced. The Cave will be released as a downloadable title on consoles and PCs early next year.

As you can guess from the title, you'll be exploring a cave. But this isn't the simple point and click adventure many were expecting. It's an action title where you choose a party of three oddball characters - including creepy twins, a time traveler, a knight and a hillbilly - to explore the cave. Each character has their own unique personality and skills, and you have to switch between them to advance. Which sounds an awful lot like Trine. RPS notes that The Cave will have same screen local co-op, but no online multiplayer. Which is a pretty bold choice in this day and age.

It looks like Maniac Mansion meets Trine. I'm looking forward to this one already.

Because they were working on this game well before they even announced the double fine adventure. They've always been working on multiple titles.

Yeah, I know. Hence the smily face.

I did have sort of a double take at the headline, though. It's was like... "Wha....? Oh, I get it."

Image reminds me of Spyro.

It looks lovely, I love this kind of cartoon art

I watched the trailer. I must be honest about it, if those 2 names weren't involved I would have discarded it immediately.

It looks fuckin' fantastic!

“Well, I think the idea for the story – and really, the Cave in general – is that everybody has this kind of dark spot in their soul, and each of these characters was chosen because of that little dark spot inside them. They really are coming to the Cave to kind of explore that dark place in them,” explained Gilbert during a demo session at Double Fine’s offices.
Love that, love it.


I wish they'd make a remake of Grim Fandango, they can fully render all of the scenes in 3D now and it will look even better. Amazing how far computing has come, scenes that took ages to render back in the day can now be rendered in real time and look even better!

I've been playing Tales of The Monkey island lately and it's amazing... really great adventure game. I highly recommend it to anyone, even if you haven't played the earlier games. Plus it comes in chapters, so you can try the first one to see if you like it or not!

Wait Double Fine has stopped working on it's quirky, small games like Costume Quest and Stacked? I don't know if I am happy or sad.

Pretty sure that the Double-Fine Adventure is going to be small and quirky.

DoctorFinger 05-25-2012 07:49 AM

They also have, I believe, at least 2 other unannounced games in development beyond The Cave and DFA.

Didn't see it mentioned here (apart from the tag) or in the RPS article, but Sega is the publisher.
