Summary: As soon as I first came upon The Cave's attractive cover art, I knew I had to have the game. When I first started up the puzzle/platformer, I wasn't disappointed, either. It was the mysterious and atmospheric visuals that had drawn me to the game, and the entire experience did indeed prove visually fantastic. The environments are lush. The characters are all charmingly animated. They don't speak, but with all the personality in their movements, they don't need to.
Summary: I decided to do this review a little differently and post my reactions to the game as it progresses. UPDATE 1: I'm about 20 minutes into the game play and so far it is pretty intriguing. It sets up the story in a way that I'm pretty interested. I've only met one character so far though. We will see how I feel about the game after a little more play time. UPDATE 2: An hour into the game it was still interesting.
Summary: Ever since I first read about The Cave, the new downloadable game released by Double Fine Productions, I had high hopes for it. After all, it was developed by the amazing Ron Gilbert, the genius behind many retro adventure games, including The Secret of Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle and even my all-time favorite video game, Maniac Mansion.
