About the Game
The Cave is a new adventure game from Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion creator Ron Gilbert, and Double Fine Productions, the award-winning studio behind Psychonauts and Brütal Legend.

Assemble your team of three from seven unlikely adventurers, each with their own unique personalities and stories, then descend into the mysterious depths to explore locations including a subterranean amusement park and a medieval castle, not to mention a fully armed and ready-to-launch nuclear tipped ICBM. The Cave awaits.

Key Features:
Seamlessly Spelunk – Explore a ginormous completely seamless cave-world presented in astounding cross-section that will blow... your... mind.

Assemble a team of 3 explorers – From the Hillbilly to the Time Traveller; all 7 characters have their own unique personalities, special talents and a dark and secret reason for descending The Cave.

A Cave like no other – If you enjoy spelunking and dark rocky caverns then be prepared to be disappointed. Your first clue The Cave is a place like no other will be when you stumble across the subterranean amusement park or the medieval castle, not to mention the fully armed and ready to launch nuclear tipped missile.

Let’s work together – Switch between the 3 characters, in cooperation with each other, and solve physical and adventure puzzles as you learn the truth behind why they are here. Share the cave exploring adventure with friends in local co-op.

Unlock all the secrets of the cave – Replay the adventure with a new set of characters for a whole different experience including unique story, puzzles and areas of The Cave, plus hidden treasures (not redeemable for cash) and collectables.

Watch the Cave come alive – Experience the detailed, stunning art style and humor that only Ron Gilbert and Double Fine can dream up.


Happy Gaming!

If you are concerned about Steam, make sure you scroll down on that Amazon page and you will see "Requires Steam Client to activate."

From the video on Steam this game looks more like a platformer than an adventure game, am I right?

My thoughts as well GreyFuss. Although I must say it looks like a pretty fun one. wink

Sorry, I missed that part about the requirement to be a Steam Client on Amazon to download the game.

It looks like this game will be released for PS3 and XBox 360 also - if my information is correct.

I just read an article in the newspaper yesterday about game designer Ron Gilbert. It talked about his return to gaming with the release of The Cave.
The Cave, according to the article, allows players to choose 3 of 7 characters to explore the magical grotto. Each character has access to different parts of the cave. Players run and jump. There is no inventory but a player is allowed one accessory.

Ana, I love the game so far. thumbsup I haven't had much of a chance to play yet, except for the first night. I'm hoping to get back to it today. The platforming elements do annoy me - I'm probably really bad at them - but everything else is terrific. I like the character journeys and the psychological aspect. The puzzles are pretty good, and there is a lot of dark humor as well. My favorite character so far is the time traveler. grin I'm playing with her, the adventurer and the monk for my first trio. smile
