Review: The Cave (This Is My Joystick)

Ron Gilbert, of Monkey Island fame, has been harbouring an idea for decades. Initially it was this concept: A cave that pulls people into the recesses of their mind, where the dark thoughts reside.

The idea stayed with him while other projects took precedent for almost twenty years, until the recent collaboration with Tim Schafer’s Double Fine Productions finally took the concept and made it a reality.

The Cave is a story of seven stereotypes (or eight if you count the synchronised twins as separate entities) and their journey into the depths of depravity. It is their journey into the self-aware cave that sets the tone for your spelunking adventures, and each is unique and has its own theme.

Each theme has its own personality, and personality is something both Ron Gilbert and Tim Schafer are renowned for. This shines the most when your narrator, the sentient cave, is layering the action with witty observations. (PC, PS3, The Cave, Xbox 360) -
