In celebration of me surviving another E3 I'm going to post a piece of very very early concept art done for The Cave by Double Fine artist Mark Hammer. Like most caves found in nature, this one also has a carnival.
Now on to the E3 coverage for The Cave:
"The Cave is a smart game that reminds me what's so great about adventuring."
"We couldn't help but giggle through the entire experience and I'm looking forward to trying it myself."
"Once you see it, you'll wonder why every adventure game isn't exactly like this."
"I can't shake the feeling that this living, breathing cave is just biding its time, waiting for me to show up and explore its mysterious depths."
"A clever, charming puzzle adventure filled with humor and interesting characters."
"The Cave appears to have everything I love about adventure games wrapped in a fun, accessible package."
"It may just be my favorite game I've seen at E3 so far."
"It's almost as though Gilbert is trying to remove as much frustration as possible from a genre well-known for...well, frustration."
"The Cave looks like a fantastic treat for adventure fans wanting more control over the onscreen riddles."
"I only got a brief glimpse of The Cave at E3, but I'm already intrigued by the game's 3D comic stylings, puzzling platforming and occasionally dark humor."

"If this game doesn't make you laugh, give yourself a pinch to make sure you're still conscious."
"The Cave had me smiling all throughout the demo, and I have a feeling that adventure fans are going to be totally won over by the game's welcome nostalgia and charming humor."
"Much as The Cave compels its eclectic cast of characters to search for their innermost desires, the E3 demo got its hooks in me, and likely won't let go until I have a chance to do some exploring of my own."
"You don't want to be in this head," Gilbert promised."
If I've missed any please let me know.
