SEGA has announced it’s to publish a brand new Double Fine Productions game from the mind of Ron Gilbert The Cave. Billed as ‘an adventure game so odd and compelling that it can only be described as odd and compelling.’ The Cave will be coming to consoles and PCs for digital download worldwide in early 2013.
‘The concept of The Cave has been bouncing around in my head for many, many years, and then the little voices that tell me to do things said it was time to make the game,’ said Ron Gilbert. ‘I’m thrilled to be working with amazingly talented folks at Double Fine and ecstatic that the team at SEGA believes in adventure games and quirky ideas.’
Apparently a ‘place like no other,’ The Cave will lure in your personally assembles team of three unlikely adventurers – each with their own unique personalities and skills – who then stumble across a subterranean amusement park, a medieval castle and even a fully armed and ready to launch nuclear-tipped ICBM.
“As SEGA continues to expand our digital gaming catalog, we’ve put a lot of effort into finding truly original experiences we can help bring to life. Both Ron and the team at Double Fine are experienced and deeply creative, and we value the chance to work with them on The Cave,” said Haruki Satomi, Senior Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA.
Beyond those nuggets litte more is known but it is promised to be available at E3 so expect to learn more shortly.
