Unlike some other high profile departures as of late, Gilbert plans on staying in the industry, saying that "it's time for me to move on from Double Fine and plot my next move," and that there are "so many games left to be designed."

The Cave review: funky spelunking

The Cave review: funky spelunking

Those familiar with the Golden Age of adventure games--a time when publishers like Sierra On-Line and LucasArts were the best acts in town--really don't need much explanation or incentive to pick up The Cave, the latest creation of Ron Gilbert. Many months ago, when word had surfaced that Gilbert had signed on to make a new type of adventure game at Double Fine Productions--the indie studio formed by one of Gilbert's long-time cohorts, Tim Schafer--the excitement was instantly palpable.

The game justifies much of the excitement it's generated since I first saw a live demo of it at last year's E3, despite a few quibbles.

Double Fine's The Cave hitting Wii U too

Nintendo's downloadable offerings on the Wii, DSi, and 3DS have been a bit lacklustre, but at least one corker's in the bag for the Wii U. Ron Gilbert and Double Fine's platforming adventure game The Cave is coming to Nintendo's new console via the eShop, DF confirmed over the weekend at PAX Prime. Which is about all we know, really.

The Cave preview

The Cave preview

It's not often that I end up grinning ear-to-ear throughout the course of a hands-off demo presentation, but Ron Gilbert and Double Fine Productions' upcoming adventure game, The Cave, had exactly that effect on me. Gilbert's best known for classic adventure titles like Maniac Mansion and The Secret of Monkey Island, and more recently, the DeathSpank games. As such, it's not really that surprising that The Cave retains the developer's quirky sense of humor. What was surprising, however, was how his new game presents a more modern and engaging take on adventure gaming and eliminates many of the genre's annoyances, while simultaneously keeping the core of what made them successful in the first place.
