Our videos of The Cave

Our videos of The Cave

For us old gamers, Ron Gilbert is above all the father of the Maniac Mansion series and the Monkey Island series, but he's also known for DeathSpank, a game that shares the same love for humor and burlesque. We don't know about you, but when we learned that the famous designer would be back with The Cave we immediately got interested. After being able to play the game for a few days, we can now tell you we were right. With its subtle mix of platforming and puzzles, this new game is a joy to play. You will laugh a lot thanks to its fantastic narrator (The Cave itself), you will think a lot thanks to its twisted - but nonetheless doable - puzzles, and you will have a lot of fun in this bizarre world. The game also has good replay value as each of the 7 playable characters has his/her own dedicated level. Check out our videos, or stay away from them if you want the satisfaction to solve everything on your own.

Definitely do that. Been playing it since last week and it's freaking brilliant. Some really nice unique touches here and there that at times makes it simply genius really. You'll love it.

Just a couple of days, can't wait.

The Giant Bomb quick look was very encouraging. I think I'll go with scientist, hillbilly, and the adventurer just to spice it up.

Woah!!

Maker of Deathspank you say?

Art is really pretty, also looks to play awesome, will give it a chance at the demo at least and if it clicks of course I will buy it!

Played the Arcade Trial of DeathSpank. Didn't like it that much tbh. Sure it's funny and all but the 3D playstyle isn't exactly what i was expecting from a Ron Gilbert game. The 2,5D playstyle of this is fitting him much better imo.

Any kind of co-op, splitscreen or multiplayer(not online) modes?
Commented on 2013-01-22 18:12:50 In reply to Bummerten
No online play, no split screen but local co-op is possible. It's just that you have to wait your turn to play since not everyone can see their character at the same time.

Will give a try to the demo, but looking at the reviews so far, do not expect something really good.

The French press is rather enthusiastic; even those who usually aren't, so it's all a matter of taste I guess.

Thanks alot ;)
Something that really has been left out this gen. Will give this one a try though, but don't have much time for singleplayer games, since i have like 20 unfinished games just waiting to be played. And the list just grows as new games comes out.
