Coming from the mind of Ron Gilbert, the man who brought you Maniac Mansion and Monkey Island comes The Cave, hitting the Xbox Live Arcade today courtesy of Double Fine and SEGA.

Choose a team of three adventurers from a selection of seven motley characters and descend deep into the mysterious depths of the titular cave, where each character will experience their own story and discover something unique about themselves.

All manner of quirky weirdness and strange locations including an amusement park, medieval castle and a missile silo with a fully-armed nuke await in The Cave, which is available to download from XBLA now for 1200 Microsoft Points. You can add it to your download queue here.

Sweet I had downloaded it and look forward to try in trials and play it later tonight before If I decide to buy it. IGN.com gave it quite positive around 70% something. So pleased this game getting positive. Good works Double Fine.

@4 - 7 out of 10 is a good score in my book, I don't why scores above 6 or so are always seen as negative. Anyway like any xbox live title you can try before you buy and that's always been a bonus.

Anyway, on topic.
Not really seen anything about this game previously, but I always enjoyed the humour behind Monkey Island so I'll give this a go when I get home from work.
Also, 5/10 is average, so anything over that is above average. It's not hard.

@7 so you are so good, you spend your time insulting someone for their grammar? Have you not got better things to do?

Anyway, love the work double fine do and the first two monkey island games. 70% isn't too bad a score. Hell, i enjoyed Doom 3 and that got a 3/10 from a respectable publication.

@7 Fuck off ASS NUGGET!!! Another doucher that wont link their Gt to their acct here. It's real easy to get online and attack someone when they have no recourse. Why are you hiding? Fucking Trash Picking, Salad Tossing, Brown Boy.
Cheevo is here daily and is a part of the community. And his/her Gt is linked unlike yours.
Obviously english is not his/her first langauge or maybe as #8 said he/she is deaf.

@7 Even though you're an attention whore dickhole, i'm going to let you know that Cheevo's grammar has improved over the years. his posts used to be unreadable at one point. Cheevo is deaf. so how about you have some respect. not everybody speaks English as a first language and can type properly for whatever the reason.

you're an asshole and i hope you have a fucked up day.

on topic: Bought it and i'm enjoying it. :D

@21 - Trying to be considerate to the largely English speaking community on here, by trying his best to type in a language that isn't his native one does make it difficult.

You would tell him to talk English if he spoke in his native language, as barely anyone could understand him. He's made a huge improvement since he first joined the site, and I commend him for it. :)

OT - I'm really interested in this game, and I forgot that it was out today! I'll download the trial first, but I'm pretty certain I'll love it. :D

I wouldn't tell anyone to speak English if they were speaking a language I didn't understand. I wish I was multilingual.

I'm really excited for this game. I love everything they have made.

@23 - I should really have said "most people would tell him to talk English". I apologise for the generalisation. Hopefully I didn't offend you?

I wish I was multilingual, but that's because I want to be able to play and understand Japanese games! :P

lol..i know he is deaf..let me translate what Cheevo360 is saying..lol ''Sweet I downloaded it and i am looking forward to playing the demo later tonight before deciding if i want to buy the full game or not. IGN.com's review scores for The Cave is around 70% or something. So pleased this game is getting positive. Good works Double Fine.''

This is what he said earlier on here ''Sweet I had downloaded it and look forward to try in trials and play it later tonight before If I decide to buy it. IGN.com gave it quite positive around 70% something. So pleased this game getting positive. Good works Double Fine.''

lol @19 saying ''Cheevo's grammar has improved over the years. his posts used to be unreadable at one point.'' Actually not really. if you read all his recent posts you can see they didn't improve.

Cheevo360, 7 and 8 scores means game is bad just saying.

@28 - Over the years =/= recently. A couple of years ago, when he first joined, he was a lot harder to understand. You can pretty much understand exactly what he is saying from his posts now.

Leave the guy alone. Also, a 7 or an 8 means a game is good, a 5 or a 6 is pretty mediocre, and a 4 or less is not a recommended title.

@7 "I" is capitalized in sentences and in the context you used "person's" is incorrect, no apostrophe is needed unless you meant to say "person is" which is still wrong. Your run on sentence really did prove to us that you know your "grammars" so thanks for correcting the author of this article with more incorrect grammar. I second #14 and his comment.

I've been anticipating The Cave for a little while now, looking forward to trying out the trial.

@ 7 lol... harsh but valid, my brain gets tangled when i read his comments, just try and skip over them it will save you a headache.
Video games and internet forums are clearly all he has for enjoyment in his life let him be...he seems like a nice kid, he just has really bad grammer, poor guy.

#Well I am male but my avatar is female because Xbox is about fun when I started this gamertag. I am huge fans of Star Wars and gave name Jedi end of my gamertag and Princess Leia is one of my favourite star wars characters as well I loved Jedis so I like some female jedis. This is why I want get female avatar for fun on it and using female Jedi's avatar with different type of costume. This is I am enjoy with.

There nothing awkward you knew now. I had tried hard explain to someone who think my grammer rubbish and my english is alway first in between I learned when I were kid. I am english with some problems of grammer and I am deaf as well. I am from West London, England. :)

There you knew now. :)

@7 Troll all you like about cheevo's grammar, but he is a good person with the best intentions on his comments. I've just recently became his friend over XBL and I text back and fourth with him all the time. You really shouldn't judge him just because his english spelling isn't great. There are plenty of people in the world who have disabilitys that happen from unfortunate circumstances and what you have done is just downright disgusting and I hope you get banned from posting on here.. THIS site is about the games,articles and making new friends in the process,Which I imagine you don't have too many of.

OT the game looks interesting, but I more then likely won't get it til its on sale I really don't care to spend 1200 points on an arcade game I hate how MS overprices these titles that last for only a few hours of time.
