Due to some internet delving, it was discovered that Double Fine has recently put in a trademark for something called “The Cave,” and it is listed as being “computer game software and video game software.” While that is the only information we have at this juncture, I think it is pretty safe to say that this is the new adventure game that they raised money for.
For those of you who are unaware, a twitter and email conversation between Tim Schafer of dDouble Fine and Minecraft creator Notch led to them creating a Kickstarter project to develop a new adventure game. Even though this isn’t Psychonauts 2 like we’ve all been wanting, I appreciate any game that come from the mind of Tim Schafer. I’m now just really curious as to what The Cave holds in store for us.
[UPDATE] Apparently “The Cave” is not the Kickstarter project. A representative at Double Fine has stated “While we can’t comment on unannounced projects, we can say that Double Fine’s Kickstarter-funded adventure game has not been started, designed, or even imagined yet. No trademarks have been filed on its behalf.” Well, there you go. I guess I have to eat my own words. Such is the life of a journalist.
