    The Cave available for prepurchase at 13

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/221810/

    Dunno if recent, but here it is. Releasing this very month. I'm surprised for the price, but it fits DF's last age of smallish original games.

    Does anyone know if it's roguelikish precedural or just a fixed scripted cave?

    It's an adventure/puzzle game, so I doubt it's procedurally generated.

    Its on Greenmangaming - http://www.greenmangaming.com/s/ie/e...dventure/cave/ and the 20% voucher work.

    As far as I know its a set adventure/puzzle so the cave is already mapped out.

    Unlock all the secrets of the cave:
    Replay the adventure with a new set of characters for a whole different experience including unique story, puzzles and areas of The Cave, plus hidden treasures (not redeemable for cash) and collectables.
    That one of the features, so maybe its different sections for each character.

    Sounds very Kirby-ish. May buy.

    RPS has published several articles about it: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/tag/the-cave/

    It does look a bit Trine-ish, doesn't it?

    It's not really a platformer. It's far closer to a point and click adventure, to the point that the PC version can be played by pointing and clicking where you want to go with the mouse. You can have the platforming element by playing with pad or keyboard, but that's not meant to be the main focus of the game.

    Yes, RPS/Gilbert mentioned that... but that's the vibe I got off the trailer. Did you have a chance to play it yet?

    I'm conflicted about this - in theory I'll like it BUT Gilbert has been known to make some CUNTISH puzzles in his time.

    Also someone said Trine which is basically a big 'fuck off' sign to me...

    I wonder if you're a bot that's craftily scripted to make 10 inconspicuous posts before you start spamming everywhere...

    Looks really good.... for a puzzle/platformer game.

    In a parallel dimension, John reads all my posts and provides replies in his RPS articles:

    Trine this is not.
