The Cave

The Cave (PlayStation Network) Video Game

The Cave is a new 2D Platformer from Double Fine and Ron Gilbert. On paper, it seems like a match made in heaven for many old school gamers, as you have seven intrepid travellers who must find out more about themselves.


7Adventure games have not only seen a very interesting resurgence over the past few years thanks to companies like TellTale, but are now doing new and interesting things to put a new twist on a classic idea. Any old PC adventure game fan who was around in the 80s and 90s should know who Ron Gilbert is. Well now Gilbert has teamed up with Double Fine to make The Cave, a game idea he has had for 20 years. It has a very familiar feel and is written in a way that's just as clever as any of his past games. Still The Cave doesn't play it safe and mixes in some very interesting new ideas that in some ways make it much more than your average Ron Gilbert/Double Fine game, but in others, less so.
