Double Fine’s The Cave announced for PSN. “Prepare to be disappointed!”
After a few teasing images and whispers Sega have finally announced The Cave from Ron Gilbert and Double Fine, with trailer and screens showing off a cartoony side scrolling adventure.
It’s a side on puzzle platformer thing that has the best press release I’ve read all week: ”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”.
Apparently you’l be taking a team of three adventurers through the ‘The Cave’ which isn’t really explained fully but includes, “a subterranean amusement park and a medieval castle, not to mention a fully armed and ready to launch nuclear-tipped ICBM.”
Confusingly there’s also a quote from ‘The Cave’. “There are those who say I’m not rooting for everyone who ventures down here but that’s not true. Not true at all. But I’m also not above a good chuckle when someone falls in lava.” The Cave then began to chuckle.”
