A place of scribblings located in the darkest corner of the internet. Yup.

SHUT UP AND READ. Ron Gilbert has a new game coming out. It’s called The Cave and it’s being published by Sega for PC, XBLA and PSN release in 2013.

Double Fine, the devs behind Brutal Legend and cult favourite Psychonauts, have today unveiled a brand new title by Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert called The Cave.

Coming from the equal parts twisted and brilliant mind of Rob Gilbert, you would expect The Cave to completely and brilliantly off it’s tits.  And you would be right.

The premise of The Cave, is that you assemble a team of adventurers, explore a subterranean amusement park which has long since been buried and in doing so you just so happen to come across inter-continental ballistic missiles.  Also, as you might imagine, rappeling and spelunking in deep, dark rocky caverns also features fairly prominently.  The game itself appears to be platform and physics based puzzler, but one that naturally bears Double Fine and Rob Gilbert’s unique flair and penache for the unconventional.

According to Gilbert: “The concept of The Cave has been bouncing around in my head for many, many years, and then the little voices that tell me to do things said it was time to make the game.”

Quite.  You mad, mad sod you.  Can’t wait to play your game.

Oh and there is a trailer too.  Cast your peepers below:

The Cave is being published by SEGA and will release on PC, XBLA and PSN sometime in 2013.
