I cannot think of a better way to start off a day than a debut trailer. Wouldn’t you agree?
Today, Sega and Double Fine announced their joint project – The Cave.

The Cave is a side-scrolling, puzzle-solving, platforming, adventure game. Which is ok in my book. The game looks incredibly awesome. The environments and characters FEEL like a Double Fine game. There are definitely elements of Trine here and other well known side-scrolling platformers. (Sega’s own Sonic and even Metroid.) It’s great to have them back. [Double Fine’s Kickstarter] The trailer shows the viewer just enough to draw you in. We also have some screenshots below.

Here are some more details.

The game is aiming for a early 2013 release. The Cave will be available on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
At the start of the game, you can choose three out of the seven  ragtag heroes. Switching between them at will. Each with their own special abilities. The characters include:

  • Monk
  • Knight
  • The Adventurer
  • The Hillbilly
  • The Scientist
  • The Twins
  • Time Traveller

And for your viewing pleasure – The Cave
