"What might at first seem like a straightforward 2D puzzle-platformer is in fact a clever throwback to classic point-and-click adventures of the late ‘80s and early ‘90s."
(4 stars) - MacLife

"It is a very enjoyable brain teaser that attempts to push the boundaries of the genre in its own, mysterious way." (4 stars) - OneClickMac

The Cave is a new adventure game from Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion creator Ron Gilbert, and Double Fine Productions, the award-winning studio behind Psychonauts and Brütal Legend.

Assemble your team of three from seven unlikely adventurers, each with their own unique personalities and stories, then descend into the mysterious depths to explore locations including a subterranean amusement park and a medieval castle, not to mention a fully armed and ready-to-launch nuclear tipped ICBM. The Cave awaits.

Key Features:

Seamlessly Spelunk – Explore a ginormous completely seamless cave-world presented in astounding cross-section that will blow... your... mind.

Assemble a team of 3 explorers – From the Hillbilly to the Time Traveller; all 7 characters have their own unique personalities, special talents and a dark and secret reason for descending The Cave.

A Cave like no other – If you enjoy spelunking and dark rocky caverns then be prepared to be disappointed. Your first clue The Cave is a place like no other will be when you stumble across the subterranean amusement park or the medieval castle, not to mention the fully armed and ready to launch nuclear tipped missile.

Let’s work together – Switch between the 3 characters, in cooperation with each other, and solve physical and adventure puzzles as you learn the truth behind why they are here. Share the cave exploring adventure with friends in local co-op.

Unlock all the secrets of the cave – Replay the adventure with a new set of characters for a whole different experience including unique story, puzzles and areas of The Cave, plus hidden treasures (not redeemable for cash) and collectables.

Watch the Cave come alive – Experience the detailed, stunning art style and humor that only Ron Gilbert and Double Fine can dream up.

Graphiques et déroulement fantastiques

Très bon jeu ! Les graphiques sont vraiment réussis, le mouvement des personnages et l'interaction des objets est délectable. On a joué en équipe ; ce qui dérange une de notre équipe de joueurs, c'est qu'il faut pas mal piler sur les autres pour réussir les différents niveaux. Ça semble refléter la vie d'aujourd'hui ! Mais malgré cela, c'est un jeu fascinant qui fait réfléchir pour résoudre les énigmes, et franchement ça fait réfléchir tout court.

Great game!!!

I really enjoyed this game! Some people complained about the dark subject matter but it didn't bother me in the slightest! Each character in the game has their own story line with similar sub stories that have to be played no matter which characters you choose. This did not bother me and I enjoyed playing each character and learning their story and their secret past. The Cave is a game that I played over and over again. I felt I definitely got my money's worth and I would recommend buying it!

Fond memories

Fans of the old school point and click adventures really need to check this game out. The price is insanely cheap for the amount of entertainment it provides. If you loved Monkey Island then the type of humor found here is going to be to your liking. The graphics are top notch and there is even replayability depending upon which character you choose in the beginning.
