Veteran developer leaves studio after finishing work on The Cave and reveals his next project.
Plundering the depths of The Cave’s magical talking grotto is like taking a tour of Ron Gilbert’s brain. There’s the comedy monkey chasing a banana. There’s the hermit turned mad by years trapped alone on a deserted island. There’s a New Grog vending machine. It seems inevitable that, deep inside, there’s also an old-fashioned adventure game hiding within the modern, puzzle-platformer clothing.
Double Fine’s importance to the current resurgence of graphic adventure games is hard to overstate.
Sega and Double Fine have released the first details and screenshots of the studio's next game, The Cave.Helmed by Monkey Island co-creator Ron Gilbert, the adventure sees the player take three of seven characters on an intrepid exploration of a talking cave which holds all manner of curiosities – including an underground theme park.
