Curious what The Cave is like, how it plays, and what secrets it holds inside? Well look no further as we have a ton of previews up from a recent press tour across the US and Europe! Ron Gilbert was on hand to discuss his latest game with Double Fine and impart some knowledge on the game. Read on for details and enjoy even more screens across our flickr page!
Each puzzle in the carnival is themed after events that will appear familiar to anyone who’s ever visited a county fair. For example, a water dunking tank hides one of the tickets, but in order to recover it you need to send one of your characters into the depths below the tank. Luckily, the Hillbilly comes equipped with a special power allowing him to hold his breath indefinitely.

As ever, Double Fine’s trademark charm and wit is on full display here – albeit with a decidedly darker tinge to the proceedings. For every glorious sun-kissed kingdom or foliage-dappled forest, there’s a macabre (and also hilarious) mention of murder or poison or mad science death lasers. It is, in other words, definitely a Ron Gilbert game at heart.

It’s a subtle mental shift, but it’s an absolutely brilliant way of thinking about a co-op game. When playing, the two of us were seamlessly shifting between characters as we constantly discussed possible solutions to each puzzle. The specific character under control became irrelevant. There were no individual scores or custom goals that pushed us in opposite directions. We were two complete strangers, and we were playing as one integrated team because that’s how the design of the game encouraged us to play.

“The hillbilly carries a torch for the Amazing Two-Legged Lady,” the cave informed us as we tumble into a subterranean carnival, where the hillbilly’s story begins. He wants to earn the love of the Two-Legged Lady by gathering enough tickets to buy her a pink, stuffed bear. Our first ticket is stolen right out of the hands of a child. It’s not the nicest thing to do, but it’s all in the name of love.
