Drew Toal slips into the second Digest chair today to talk about The Cave, Rob Gilbert’s latest explore-y, puzzle-y, witty adventure. There’s an important caveat that comes up toward the end of our discussion, which is that The Cave may very well be more fun if you play with a couple of friends rather than alone. Our junior staffers (2013’s upgraded version of last year’s interns) spent an afternoon playing the game, and there was much laughing coming from the Official Gameological Game Room.
A caveat to the caveat, however: Those guys only played for a couple of hours, to capture footage, and they were starting to lose interest toward the end. That might mirror my experience that The Cave’s appeal ebbed as I kept coming back to it. Or it might not. In any case, Drew and I wrap up today’s Digest segment with our “dream team” of playable characters in The Cave. You have seven characters to choose from, and you have to pick three. Knowing what we know now, we tell you which three we’d choose.
