Ron Gilbert’s Double Fine game comes out of The Cave

Thursday, 24th May 2012 14:10 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Details on Ron Gilbert’s Double Fine game, The Cave, have come to light, and as artwork teases have previously hinted, the game stars seven characters: the adventurer, a hillbilly, a knight, the monk, the time-traveler, the scientist, and twins.

Each character is apparently, looking for something inside this cave, where the game takes place, and the environment will represent the darkness found in each character, according to Gilbert.

Players will choose three characters to join their party, each with their own unique personalities and skills, and start exploring the cave which is full of adventures and puzzles tailored to your group. This means that the environment will change, depending on which characters you chose to adventure with.

“The concept of The Cave has been bouncing around in my head for many, many years, and then the little voices that tell me to do things said it was time to make the game,” said Ron Gilbert in the press release.

SEGA has confirmed it will publish the title, and it will be released digitally on PC and consoles in early 2013.

A teaser video and screenshots are posted below, along with links to previews.

    AWESOME. Also, HUGE kodus to Sega for publishing this. After Trenched and Stacking, this looks to be the next DF classic. Double Fine + Ron Gilbert + MetroidVania + Puzzle Adventure + Shifting Worlds = GODHOOD!
