SEGA’s joint game with Double Fine Productions (Brutal Legends, Stacking) and Ron Gilbert (Maniac Mansion, The Secret of Monkey Island) will be free for Playstation Plus owners later this month. So if you already got a Playstation Plus account, this should be welcoming news to your ears. This is for US Playstation Plus members, Europeans are getting Mass Effect 3 and Dead or Alive 5 for free (so I don’t think they will be crying).
Don’t know if you’d like the game? Read our review! You know, we do those, right?
How could I not be excited for The Cave when SEGA was publishing, Double Fine was developing, and the man behind The Secret of Monkey Island, Ron Gilbert, was behind this title? Now that I have finished the game, was it everything that I expected it to be? Were my hopes too high? Read on and find out.
From Rob Gilbert’s latest Twitter, it seems that the Sega booth will have some toys based on the adventurers from Ron Gilbert’s “The Cave”. What the price of these toys is unkown, but I know I’d love to get my hands on them. Perhaps Sega will be giving some out for free stuff Friday, or is Double Fine flipping the bill for these neat figs?
SEGA’s latest partnership with a third party developer ought to get a few fans excited, as Double Fine will be teaming up with the Blue Skies developer to develop a 2.5D adventure. The game will allow players to take control of one of seven characters, all with their unique abilities and story. Being headed by Ron Gilbert, the title is set to take players into the Cave, which happened to be a talking cave earlier in development, a talking cave that has tried its hand in dating. If that has interested you, head over to Destructoid for further information on the game. It is set to be available for Playstation 3, Xbox360 and PC with a release date sometime in 2013.
SEGA’s Twitter has recently posted a mystery image on Flickr, seen here, of a forest setting with a chunk missing from the image and a question mark. Clearly they are teasing a new game, but what game could it be? Well, we shared the initial image on our Facebook page, and a kind reader by the name of Marius Theßeling speculated that the art matched the style of Ron Gilbert’s unannounced upcoming game from Double Fine Productions. And sure enough, it matches up! We simply grabbed the image from SEGA’s flicker, and dropped in all the character art from Gilbert’s blog onto the image. Just like a puzzle, an image came together and you can see the completed image above. So it’s official: SEGA is teaming with Double Fine to publish a game! Sorry if we ruined the surprise, SEGA. But all the pieces were there.
