Spruce Up Your PC with all new Wallpaper for The Cave

The Cave is here to refresh to that old wallpaper you’ve been holding on to for all these years – yes, you know the one… 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.

The Cave - Campfire Wallpaper - 1920x1080
1920×1080 | 1600×900 | 1280×720

What will these lucky seven find, you ask? Only Ron Gilbert knows, and Double Fine, oh and you will too when the game launches in January on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii-U, and PC platforms.
