As you might expect from a pairing of Ron Gilbert and Doublefine, The Cave is looking better and better. The trailer above introduces a handful of characters from the game, including a murderous monk, a pair of mischievous twins, a lovesick hillbilly, and an ambitious scientist.
Everything in this video is dripping with humor, and appears to meld the warped, childlike Gothic sensibilities of early Tim Burton with the otherworldy design and witty humor of Psychonauts. The puzzle solving and perspective even gives off a distinct Oddworld vibe.
Now that all of Sega’s biggest games of 2012 have released, I finally feel free to get excited for this supergroup collaboration. And boy am I excited.
