Sega and Double Fine Productions have announced a joint project, and it might just be the Kickstarter-funded adventure game Double Fine announced earlier this year. The new game is called ‘The Cave, and it sounds like the kind of awesome we were hoping for from Tim Schaffer and co.
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 trademarked The Cave back in February, shortly after announcing their Kickstarter initiative. The Cave looks to be the product of that, and if the trailer is any indication, the money we sent to Double Fine will be worth it. The Cave will be out on Console and PC in early 2013. See the official site for more. Here’s the debut trailer. Enjoy.
