The Cave to Be Released on January 22/23

For those of you that haven’t heard, there’s a new game being released from the creator of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion.  The Cave, which is also the talking entity that narrates the entire thing, follows the adventures of seven characters.  You get to pick a party of three from those seven.  Each character has come to The Cave for a specific reason and it’s your job to guide them through and discover what that reason is.  It looks to be a puzzle-platformer, in the vein of Trine and similar games, as the game has you switching between your three characters throughout your cave delving.  The game looks to be filled with action, adventure, plenty of tongue-in-cheek humor, and a ton of replay value.

The game will be released on January 22nd on PSN and Wii U, then on the 23rd for XBLA and Steam.  Be sure to check it out!  Links below:
