The Wii U version of Ron Gilbert's latest adventure game is due fairly soon, is anyone planning on picking this up?

As someone who adored the likes of Monkey Island, I'm definitely interested, and the general premise and surrounding narrative sounds interesting.

I'm definitely interested in The Cave too, but I'll be getting it on XBLA.

Yes! My ticket into The Cave is virtually assured. I only hope I won't spend too long scratching my head at it all!

Always up for something along these lines. Hopefully it'll be up to scratch.

The Cave is coming to the European eShop this Thursday, team! It will cost the princely - nay, kingly - sum of £9.99, and there'll also be a demo.

Poo. One of my New Year's resolutions was to try to get my backlog of games below fifty and keep it there. Woe is me! Boo-hoo

For those of us who heard of it for the first time here, can we have a link? Some pictures? Some more details about what it involves? I understand that it's a puzzler: this is the extent of my understanding.

Here's the link to Double Fine's promotion website for the game. It's essentially an adventure game à la Maniac Mansion Monkey Island but slightly more of a platforming element is promised. And you can only fully explore the titular Cave with a few playthroughs. Meh

Nintendo Life's recent description of the game (in the blurb I've linked) instantly brings Trine 2 to mind: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2013/01/nintendo_download_24th_january_2013_europe

I read "monkey island" and it was sold to me.

Looking forward to this. I just hope the no off-TV play rumours aren't true. Hissy fit

UPDATE: Turns out the rumours are true. (It was released today in US.)

Double post Razz

Played the demo earlier (which is brief) puzzle element is good but I think I'll definitely need to read some reviews first before parting with £10

I spent my first Nintendo Network Premium reward on this.
Really enjoying this, and with the multiple characters, looks like there's a lot of replayability too.

Got round to downloading it, haven't played it yet. I got sidetracked by the Ni No Kuni demo.

Just got round to playing that demo. Hmm. Colour me unimpressed. There's just too much backtracking and lugging items/characters about for me to find this much fun. I know it's early days, but I feel the eShop needs a size twelve boot up the arse. Disappointing that this doesn't seem to be that boot up the arse.

The NintendoLife review of this has put me off somewhat. Thank goodness I said earlier that my ticket into The Cave was virtually assured! Yay for get-out clauses! Grin

The demo seems to have put a lot of people off this game.
Shame, because the full game is brilliantly twisted. I've completed it once, and I'm now going through it again with different characters.

I quite liked the demo, didn't blow me away but I think I'll still download it.
