Double Fine’s newest project has been revealed and it is a downloadable title called The Cave. The publisher, Sega, announced the “odd and compelling” game today. Here’s the official announcement:
If you enjoy rappelling, spelunking and dark rocky caverns then be prepared to be disappointed! And then intrigued. And then AMAZED. And then disappointed again, but only for a minute. Then relieved, amused, bewildered, excited, and satisfied. In that order.
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 skills – and stumble across a subterranean amusement park and a medieval castle, not to mention a fully armed and ready to launch nuclear-tipped ICBM.
Double Fine wasn’t completely silent today. They also had something to say about The Cave.
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. I’m thrilled to be working with amazingly talented folks at Double Fine and ecstatic that the team at Sega believes in adventure games and quirky ideas.
The Cave will be available early next year on PC and as a digital download on consoles. You can check out the debut trailer below:
