The Cave is an underground adventure game that sees three characters solving puzzles together in order to reach the mysterious cave's centre and have their wishes granted.
There will be seven playable characters in all, each with their own unique abilities and story. Players will solve puzzles in different ways depending on which three characters are chosen. Some puzzles will only appear for certain characters, leading to alternate paths through the cave.
The game is being developed by Double Fine, and has been created by Monkey Island and Deathspank director Ron Gilbert.
