If you like your games quirky, creepy and odd, but very creative, then check out the latest effort from designer Ron Gilbert and the rest of the crew over at Double Fine Productions. The Cave presents you with seven unusual adventurers—each on their own quest and sporting unique powers. You must choose three of these adventurers to start with, and the folks you choose will then determine how you progress through a mysterious talking Cave. Along the way, you’ll have to solve puzzles and face challenges using the distinct abilities of each of your team members. So there’s lots of replay value from this premise—just choose another team and it’s a whole new experience. The Cave itself is filled with all kinds of strange areas and wonders—like a twisted amusement park, a medieval castle, and a nuclear missile silo. Leave it to the studio behind Psychonauts and Brütal Legend to come up with slightly disturbing non sequitur worlds that also are a blast to play. For sheer, unbridled creativity that defies logic, join the seven kooky adventurers in The Cave.
