Descend into The Cave on January 22

Double Fine's classically styled adventure project The Cave is right around the corner. Publisher Sega announced today that it will be available started in January 22 for PlayStation 3 and Wii U, and then January 23 for Xbox 360 and Steam. It will cost $14.99 across all platforms.

The Cave comes from Ron Gilbert, the mind behind Maniac Mansion and Monkey Island. It shares a lot in common with those classics, featuring a set of wacky characters in a 2D "Metroidvania" style cave. Our own Jeff Mattas was grinning all the way through his demo, which seems like a good sign for Gilbert's blend of humor and puzzles.
