The Cave is a game about puzzles and adventures. Returning to the game industry Ron Gilbert, most known for Adventure games from the early 90’s, has built upon a 20 year old idea to bring The Cave into existence. Much of the game is built upon the large resume of Ron Gilbert’s previous achievements in games with Tim Schafer and others at LucasArts including Monkey Island, Maniac Mansion and much more. Many older fans of the point-and-click adventure games made quite a lot of noise before release of the game because of the affinity for the older games.
Players pick 3 different characters out of 7 to walk around in a terrifyingly humors magic talking cave. Gameplay usually consists of using the three characters in tandem to solve puzzles and find objects to complete areas of the cave. There is also some light platforming elements strewn in throughout the game but a majority of the platforming is not difficult. Each of the characters have a different power or element to them that makes every area feel different even if players have seen it before. Each character also has some sort of dark secret attached to them in hopes of giving players a reason to play through the game multiple times.
