Fans of Double Fine Productions won’t have to wait too long for their next game. The studio behind Psychonauts, Costume Quest, and Brütal Legend is set to launch their newest game, The Cave, next week across all major platforms.
The Cave, co-directed by Double Fine’s founder Tim Schafer and original Monkey Island designer Ron Gilbert, stars you and up to 2 of your friends (locally) in an adventure through a talking cave with labyrinthine tunnels. The cast is made up of seven characters, all coming from across time and space to find out about themselves by traversing this cave. Be careful which character you though; certain characters can only go through certain spots.
The Cave will be published by Sega for all consoles except for the Wii U release (Double Fine Productions will publish that version). The game will begin releasing next Tuesday, January 22, on the PlayStation Network and the Nintendo eShop. It will be followed by releases through Steam and Xbox Live Arcade on Wednesday. All versions will be about $15 ($14.99 on Steam, PSN, and the eShop; 1200 Microsoft Points through XBLA). The Cave is rated T for Teen by the ESRB.
