Heavens to Betsy, isn’t that a great headline? Or am I letting my penchant for Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion nostalgia fuel my anticipation for this game? Irrelevant, because Ron Gilbert’s newest adventure game, The Cave, is out on 23 January, which is exactly a week away today.
In The Cave you form a team of three characters out of a total of seven; said team then gets down to exploring what’s hidden inside the depths of the anthropomorphic and eponymous Cave. Each character is looking for something in particular, and you’ll have to play through the game a number of times to see everything.
The game hits digital sales platforms next week. It’s out on the PlayStation Network for £9.99 (probably about R150) and Xbox LIVE for 1200 MS Points. It’ll also be available on Steam for $14.99 and later on the Nintendo eStore for Wii U. Hit the jump for a trailer.
