The Cave was an adventure game by Ron Gilbert, Chris Remo, and Double Fine Productions.


Three people have to make their way out of a cave using their unique abilities to do so.


It has play mechanics similar to Ron Gilbert's first game, Maniac Mansion, where you choose three characters out of a group, leading to many different ways to complete the game and differing stories. The game is direct-controlled, and the characters are able to jump. Although this means there were some platforming elements, Ron Gilbert has always insisted that it is an adventure game, not a platformer.


It was released on January 22, 2013 for PlayStation 3 and Wii U, on January 23, 2013 for Xbox 360, and on January 24, 2013 on Steam for Windows and Mac. It was released on Steam for Linux on February 20, 2013 and for iOS on October 3, 2013. It was then released for Ouya on December 2, 2013 and for other Android devices on December 19, 2013.
