Spelunking through the depths of the mysterious cave in Double Fine Productions’ latest game, The Cave, will likely bring on a bout of nostalgia for anyone who fondly remembers pointing and clicking their way through adventure games during the 1980s and 1990s. This should come as no surprise to hear since the title comes from the mind of Ron Gilbert — the man behind several classic adventure games like Manic Mansion and The Secret of Monkey Island. Considering the history of the developers working on The Cave, it would be fair to say that there were some lofty expectations for the title leading up to its release. Thankfully, Gilbert and his team have once again lived up to their reputations by delivering a fun and challenging adventure game.
