The Cave Debut Trailer Features An Adventure Full Of Peril
The official debut trailer for Ron Gilbert's The Cave, which is being developed by Double Fine Studios and published by Sega, gives gamers a fairly good look at the side-scrolling adventure title that seems to be a throwback to the days of games like The Neverhood and Heart of Darkness.
The art-style is especially amiable given that it uses the sort of distorted clay-mation approach to its presentation. Part of the design and level schemes also remind me a little bit of the recent title, Vessel, which also shares in the mechanical-puzzle-oriented gameplay format. Check it out below and see if it tickles your fancy.
Double Fine recently announced The Cave as a small, low-budget project set for release for home consoles and PCs due out in early 2013.
Much like many other old-school adventure platforming titles, players will select a character and venture throughout the world to uncover secrets, solve puzzles and encounter, avoid and face dangers of many facets. If you've been itching for a niche title that wasn't just another hand-holding shooter or semi-action-RPG that holds your hand from start to finish, then you might want to keep an eye on The Cave.
I'm sure we'll see more of this game at upcoming tradeshows, but if you want to keep up-to-date on Double Fine's progress on this title as well as their Kickstarter adventure game, feel free to pay a visit to their Official Website.
