Start exploring The Cave on PSN from tomorrow

Lead image The Cave 1

Greetings! The team here at Double Fine Productions is pleased to announce that The Cave, our latest game led by legendary adventure game designer Ron Gilbert, will be available tomorrow for PlayStation 3 via PSN.

In The Cave, you’ll choose three characters – from a possible seven – to descend the depths of an ancient and mysterious cave, each of them in search of something they desire above all else. This is no ordinary ancient and mysterious cave, however: The Cave happens to be alive, watching their every move, narrating their stories, doling out wisdom and mockery in equal measure. What could his true motive possibly be? He’s not telling. “Mysterious” just means “not telling”.

The Cave 3

Depending on which characters you choose, you’ll puzzle your way through a Victorian mansion, a museum from the far future, a desert island, a nuclear missile silo, and much more… all buried deep within The Cave. See? We’re being mysterious too!

The Cave 2 The Cave 5

We’ve designed the puzzles such that one player can solve them by switching between all three characters, or you can have friends join in for two or three player local cooperative play. Each character has a unique special ability, which gives them access to new areas and puzzle solutions.

The Cave 5

You’ll run around and jump on stuff, but make no mistake, The Cave is an adventure game in the grand old tradition of games where you steal things, make people upset and break into places. Who doesn’t love that? Pick up The Cave tomorrow for £9.99/€12.99 and prove you are capable of love!

Did you enjoy this?

Another game that could have come to the vita, please start getting developers to start making vita versions too


Another game with no PS+ discount.

#2 I hope for a Vita version also

Aces73High 22 January, 2013 @ 7:43 pm   6

As a massive fan of Ron Gilbert, I so wish The Cave was coming to Vita too. My job means I travel an awful lot, so when I do eventually get to spend some time at home, quality time with my kids has to come before any PS3 downtime. Just. [kidding]. It’s a shame, because this looks right up my alley. Either way, if you’re listening (erm, or should that be reading?!) Ron and/or the guys at Double Fine, I really hope this does well for you. And if you ever you do decide to look at a handheld edition for Vita, my money is just begging to jump into your coffers!

Oh, and should Telltale ever chance by this post, the same goes for The Walking Dead guys! Loved it on iPad, but I’d love a Vita version too. Perhaps I’m a tad strange, but any time a game really gets under my skin, I tend to buy every single version on every single platform. My thought process is if the best (indie) developers are well supported, they’ll go on to make even more great games. And besides my kids, there’s nothing I like more to spend my money on.

+1 for a Vita version

Let me guess: NOT AVAILABLE in Poland and half of Europe?

Notlaw1976 22 January, 2013 @ 8:36 pm   9

I want this, but a PlayStation plus discount would have been nice.

CoolRichy008UK 22 January, 2013 @ 8:42 pm   10

sony wont put this game in poland or australia cuz they are tight up and cant be bothered i think its just not fair on people who want a psn game where they are and then find out that sony cant be bothered to bring it to their terotory i know im a moaner but this really makes me smack glass backwords i think sony need to make all future psn games avalable everywhere to hell with the guidelines all future psn games for the whole world

ZenSelai if they dont bring it to australia i will raid sony HQ and send you a blueray version ok 🙂

SteveS-71 22 January, 2013 @ 8:44 pm   11

I’d love to be able to play this on the Vita, but no interest in playing it on a PS3. If a Vita version isn’t planned please consider making it remote play enabled if it isn’t already. I’d prefer a proper vita version but would settle for remote play.

CoolRichy008UK 22 January, 2013 @ 8:49 pm   12

they was gonna have a ninja in the game but changed it to a monk

someone told me that 😉

awkward_ghost 22 January, 2013 @ 9:49 pm   13

The lack of Plus discounts on any recent new games is beginning to get really irritating. 🙁

With a decent Plus incentive I probably would’ve bought this at launch, but as it is it’s just going to get added to my increasingly-long “wait until sale” list…

I don’t like how Plus seems to be becoming just about the Instant Game Collection. It’s true that it’s given me a handful of true delights for free, but there’s also been a heck of a lot of stuff that I’m not interested in, and also the majority of the old free games that do interest me I would inevitably have bought and played already.

I don’t think the IGC is as good a deal in practice as it is on paper, and it’s certainly not what I’d like Plus to be exclusively about.

More new-game incentives for Plus subscribers please!!

CoolRichy008UK 22 January, 2013 @ 10:51 pm   14

awkward_ghost is right ps plus was great when i joined in 2011 but now there int many good games to get and any i do buy from ps store you add them to ps plus a week later

id love to see some pc games come to ps3 cuz ps3 games go on the pc it makes sence and would be coool to see some propper pc games on the ps3

like euro truck simulator 2 its a cool game and so far i done a 1.100 mile road trip in 3 days in game time and although its not 100% real like the real life trucking people and trucks its a great game

youtube euro truck simulator 2 – only for people who love road trips and trucks 😛

rodrigo1UP 22 January, 2013 @ 11:04 pm   15

it would look great on my vita =)


does anyone know when uk ps plus content for Feb will be announced?

Yeah, it does seem like a perfect fit for the Vita. Ever since I’ve got it, I distribute the games more or less evenly between Vita and PS3. Quirky, smaller games end up on the PSV, while PS3 only gets big titles (big as in massive campaigns and all that).


I agree with the many comments about a Vita version, his would be brilliant on the Vita. Let’s hope they decide to port it.

I would also like #16 be interested to know what the PS+ February content is for the UK in particular.

Unicronic 23 January, 2013 @ 1:14 am   19

Well, Stacking and Costume Quest are awesome games. Might have to get this one too.

Capt_Darling 23 January, 2013 @ 2:04 am   20

$7.99 on US PSN!
Nice creative pricing, I guess I’ll wait for a sale but by then I will have lost interest, oh well 🙂


Ditto the Vita comments…. It gets more air time than my PS3 at the moment!

Capt_Darling 23 January, 2013 @ 2:34 am   22

Further to my last comment, it appears that info on SCEE blog (see store update) was incorrect and the price is $14.99

residentSteve 23 January, 2013 @ 6:28 am   23

How about a post on resident evil revelations coming to psn, what’s the cave?


Looks like another awesome Double Fine game. You guys rock.

TINTINTB303 23 January, 2013 @ 9:50 am   25


I read the comment:

…”Another game with no PS+ discount.”…

and knew that Voodoo was back 😉

Hey Voodoo you ducked my last question I gave you before Xmas.

Since you’re back I’ll try again 🙂

When does your PS+ sub run out? When it does run out will you be a man of your word and never darken the SCEE blog ever again?? 😉

Wild_Guns 23 January, 2013 @ 9:53 am   26

The Cave is already up in the EU Store now 🙂


@Capt_Darling Isn’t it $14.99 in the US? £9.99 makes sense.

I’m in!

Catkiller1 23 January, 2013 @ 10:20 am   28

@ antikewl

Capt_Darling already addressed that within his post #22.

I will always support Double fine, so count me in too! 🙂

TINTINTB303 23 January, 2013 @ 10:34 am   29

This game does look really good so you can count me in too!! 😀

sheikh_AND_bake 23 January, 2013 @ 11:50 am   30

Can a moderator please confirm what time this is released in the UK. I want to buy this on ps3 but disappointed with lack of timing for release information. Many thanks.

TINTINTB303 23 January, 2013 @ 12:05 pm   31

@ sheikh_AND_bake

Anytime between 2pm and 7pm but if I was a betting man I would go for mid afternoon so about 3pm maybe 4pm. 🙂

NightRanma 23 January, 2013 @ 12:16 pm   32

If I’d known it was coming to consoles, I maybe would have picked it up on PS3. As it stands, I got it on Steam. Been excited about this game for a while.

It’s a little disappointing that there’s no word on a Vita version. I think it would be fantastic to play it on handheld. Add cross-buy and cross-save and it would be a must-buy for me. Oh well, You guys already have my money.

sheikh_AND_bake 23 January, 2013 @ 12:18 pm   33

Thanks but please can a moderator respond. Seriously, why is it so hard to post time of release. Is it good customer service to expect ur customers to keep popping into the store every hour to see if it has finally arrived. If the release date is schedules as 23 jan I expect it to be there on that day, not have to wait several hours. Sorry for the rant but please take comment on board, it is frustrating when u want to plan your day

Wild_Guns 23 January, 2013 @ 12:23 pm   34

Not sure if the same for all, but I have it simply between latest demos. check

sheikh_AND_bake 23 January, 2013 @ 12:29 pm   35

Wild guns you beauty, why on earth not in games? Lol

Wild_Guns 23 January, 2013 @ 12:32 pm   36

because is a trial and unlock only? XD

sheikh_AND_bake 23 January, 2013 @ 12:33 pm   37

Don’t even know what that means… Unlock usually means unlock the game no?

Wild_Guns 23 January, 2013 @ 12:34 pm   38

Means that you try it and at a certain point it will ask you to pay in order to continue

TINTINTB303 23 January, 2013 @ 12:41 pm   39

@ sheikh_AND_bake (again)

You will not get a reply on an exact time as this is a fluid process and some stuff goes up hours before others.

A mod has NEVER commented on this blog!!

Fred, Chris and Jawad may respond but they are NOT mods.

The store (or to be precise). The Cave will be available when it is available (most likely mid afternoon).

I have heard some some content had already gone live but I do not know if The Cave is one of the items already up…

sheikh_AND_bake 23 January, 2013 @ 12:52 pm   40

Funny how there is a button saying report abuse to a moderator. Shame they don’t listen. Anyway thanks guys downloading the trial so will play that and hopefully by the time it asks for dish it will be up. Enjoy the game. Cheers again


Is this going to be released to Australia and New Zealand?

PeaWee678 24 January, 2013 @ 1:54 am   42

i am stumped on this game. maybe its too early but does anyone know where to find help of any sort?

PeaWee678 24 January, 2013 @ 1:55 am   43

sorry meant to be on the US blog.

Hamster8U 25 January, 2013 @ 2:10 pm   44

Played the demo & loved it 🙂 Defo getting this tomorrow!!
