Created by Ron Gilbert, the same man responsible for "Monkey Island", "The Cave" has players put together a team of three uniquely off-kilter characters from a selection of seven to explore the depths and wonders of a magical talking cave. The game is presented as a 2D platformer as the trio of characters unlocks more areas "Metroid-vania" style by collecting items. However, some areas of "The Cave" are only accessible by certain characters.
"The Cave" is primarily a single-player game but it does support offline co-op for up to three people on the same console or PC.
