À propos de ce jeu

The Cave est le nouveau jeu d'aventure de Ron Gilbert, le créateur de Monkey Island et Maniac Mansion, et Double Fine Productions, le studio récompensé qui a développé Psychonauts et Brütal Legend.

Formez votre équipe en choisissant trois des sept aventuriers loufoques, chacun ayant sa propre personnalité et sa propre histoire, puis descendez dans les profondeurs mystérieuses pour explorer différents lieux dont un parc d'attractions sous-terrain, un château médiéval, ou encore un missile balistique intercontinental à tête nucléaire paré au lancement. The Cave vous attend.

Caractéristiques :

  • De la Spéléologie sans limites – Explorez un immense monde sous-terrain à couper le souffle, sans écran de chargement.
  • Constituez une équipe de 3 explorateurs – Allant du péquenaud au voyageur temporel, les 7 personnages ont tous leur personnalité propre, des talents particuliers et une raison occulte de descendre dans The Cave.
  • Une caverne extraordinaire – Si vous aimez la spéléologie et les cavernes sombres et rocailleuses, alors préparez-vous à une sacrée déception. Vous saisirez à quel point The Cave est un endroit unique lorsque vous tomberez sur le parc d'attractions sous-terrain, le château médiéval, ou encore le missile à tête nucléaire paré au lancement.
  • Un travail d'équipe – Incarnez tour à tour les 3 personnages pour qu'ils coopèrent afin de résoudre les énigmes variées de l'aventure et découvrez la véritable raison de leur présence ici. Partagez cette aventure en explorant la caverne avec des amis via le mode coopération en local.
  • Débloquez tous les secrets de la caverne – Recommencez l'aventure avec d'autres personnages pour vivre une expérience totalement différente avec une histoire et des énigmes inédites, de nouvelles zones de The Cave à découvrir ainsi que des trésors cachés (non échangeables contre de l'argent) et d'autres objets à collectionner.

The Cave was a big disappointment for me. I used to consider myself a Double Fine fan, considering practically every DF title to be an instant purchase. However, I consider their more recent releases to be of much lower quality than I would expect from a developer I admired so. The Cave was the first of these.

First off, as a puzzle platformer, most of the puzzles in the game aren't particularly challenging or interesting, often consisting of a simple "find key, open door." Some puzzle mechanics are fun, such as the Time Traveller's ability to alter events in the past to change a level's layout in the future. Mechanics such as these aren't very common, as many of the puzzles are generic so that any character can complete them, likely to avoid conflicts in your party composition.

Every character has their own backstory which covers how or why they arrived at the titular Cave, but after going through the first couple of characters' levels, you'll notice the common theme pretty quickly and the story exploration becomes uninteresting. It almost feels like an attempt to make "another Psychonauts" by the nature of its writing, with The Cave's backstory exploration echoing similarly to the repressed memories in Psychonauts. However, many may find The Cave's characterization extremely lacking in comparison. Its humor is there but it lacks the quality writing underneath which made other DF titles work so well.

The Cave tops off its first (very short, no more than 4-5 hour) playthrough with a picture montage (yet again reminiscent of the repressed memories in Psychonauts) and a text notification informing you that you have beaten The Cave, rather than any sort of proper ending. The Cave encourages the player to go through the game at least three times to unveil every character's backstory, with the game not "actually" being beaten until then. Due to the repetition of solving many of the same puzzles across each playthrough, I was not interested in finishing the game a second time. The writing wasn't even interesting enough to convince me to power through the repetition of doing them again.

All in all, despite its many weak points, The Cave has a few interesting puzzle mechanics that make it worth playing, especially if it can be grabbed for 75% off or more. Unless it's a title you are very interested in, however, I'd avoid it altogether.

The Cave got pretty middling reviews on release, but for me it was easily my favourite game of 2013. It stands as one of the few games I can think of (the other being Portal 2) that feels like an amusement park attraction. The art is a treat to look at, all the locations are fascinating, the puzzles are neat, the writing is fantastic and the characters are charming. And like the aforementioned Portal 2 and its Aperture Science facility, as you get deeper and deeper into the eponymous Cave, things get stranger and cooler. The game has a constant and satisfying sense of momentum, moving you from set piece to set piece before all arriving at its quaint conclusion. It's a little short, especially if you're only going to go around once, but strap yourself in and enjoy the ride.

Every gamer has a Videogame Guru, Idol, an iconic, inspiring figure. For me, since I consider myself ad adventure gamer, it was a no brainer, mine is Ron Gilbert. I don't think I have to explain why.

So, The Cave.

Good things first. The Cave is funny (and the Cave's voice is HILARIOUS). It's Ron Gilbert funny, there are so many references, jokes, even the torches on the walls are funny in this game. The gamepad control system works fine, making the game highly enjoyable even on consoles, which is something new for an adventure. Having to choose three characters to descend in the Cave from a pool of seven guarantees a good replayability, since you have to beat the game at least 3 times to explore all the personal sections.

Now the things I didn't like much. The game is easy. I understand that to take adventure games in the next century we NEED to include new players and not only the hardcore old times fans, but still, I really wanted to get stuck, for old times sake :D and, on a different matter, the Cave as a character IS great, but this gameplay choice (platforming based puzzle solving) completely eliminates dialogue, which was Ron Gilbert's old point and click adventures real added value.

Don't misunderstand me, I LOVED The Cave, but maybe my expectations were too high, I liked to dream about a gamechanging title, while this one is probably a first step, hopefully in the right direction, to really innovate the genre. If there's one person who can do it, that person is Ron Gilbert.

A very charming game with multiple tales of fortune and grim misfortune. The puzzles can be a bit testy but, you'll soon learn in time how to solve them with great delight. All of these innocent characters only wish to find what they've been searching for most. Hopefully when you dwell inside The Cave you'll find what you most desire as well.

This game was fun once, but its' replayability is limited. It offers multiple characters who each come with their own levels, but those levels are interspersed with stock levels that you have to run through every time. There isn't enough variation in the characters to make those stock levels interesting on subsequent replays.
THe play-through time with one set of characters is also quite short so, while the dialogue and story is fun, the game just isn't that worth it.

I really enjoy this game, the atmosphere, the stories, and the gameplay. However, it would be nice to have online co-op, instead of just local.

Rating 7.5/10
Overview: 2d Puzzle Platformer

The Good

+ The main premise is that there are 7 unique characters, you choose 3 to control as you make your way through the cave. Each character has their own unique level associated with them. This provides some level of replayability.

+ The levels themselves are fun to play and each one provides its own unique puzzles to solve which makes the game interesting.

+Nice graphical art style

+ Game controls nicely with gamepad

The Average

Like most games that focus on humor, the dialogue can be very hit or miss.

It can be a short game if you don't bother to replay it with the other characters.


The Bad

- Because you have to switch between 3 characters to solve the puzzles in the game, this creates a lot of needless backtracking. A lot of the puzzles themselves revolve around you going to one side of the map picking up an item and having to go back to the other side. Over time this starts become very tedious.

Conclusion

This is a very charming game, something you would normally expect from Ron Gilbert and Double Fine. If you get this game, you are playing it to experience the different scenarios each character has to offer along with the puzzles that come along with them.

Delightful game with a wonderful sense of humour - will keep you chuckling the whole way through. With so many characters to choose from, you'll want to play the game over and over.

The Cave is a 2D side-scroller, puzzle platformer game. You choose a combination of 3 out of the 7 characters and descend to the Cave. The Cave features great humor and comedy especially the narration itself. The puzzles are not that challenging. Only two character stories gave me a hard a time. (The Monk and The Time Traveler) Each character story has their own key puzzle part. (meaning a "hard" part of the story) The combination of characters you choose affects your path through the cave but not entirely since there will be parts of your journey where you'll be doing the same puzzle over and over again especially when you tend to miss quite a lot of the collectible Cave paintings. For the whole part, the Cave is a bit short since I'm more indulged in heavy puzzle games making The Cave puzzles not much of a challenge but it's a game worth playing. I recommend this game to anyone who wants to experience a humor and comedy like no other with the addition of great stories and a puzzle platformer gameplay. This price is a bit too high for the game itself so I also highly encourage anyone to buy it when it's on sale, more preferably when it's on a 66% discount or higher.

Pros:
+ Good graphics
+ Great narration (has a lot of humor)
+ Has great storylines with their own unique twists (One story per character)

Cons:
+ The puzzles are very repetitive when you want to clear the game with a new set of characters.
+ The Price is too much for the gameplay itself.

Overall, it's a great game and I totally enjoyed the game and story despite the easy puzzles.

Cute and Funny; I'm starting to notice a pattern of the games I like. Ha!

Every time you start up a game you pick 3 of the 7 characters and then puzzles are combined based on the unique abilities of those chosen. Dark Humor with a semi-serious undertone, the story line is carried out through a sexily-voiced narrator that will keep you at a modest chuckle throughout. I was satisfactorily entertained and look forward to seeing the story completed for each of the characters.

7.5/10

This is an A+ Game, mix the best parts of a platform with the best from a graphic adventure and add an excellent portion of the finest humor you could find inside a videogame. Longevity is not so great, you can terminate the game in just one day, but you can replay it with different characters, each of them unlock different scenarios and puzzles, specially if you're into Steam achievements, you'll need to replay it using different combinations to complete all of them.
Highly recommended to anyone who love a videogame as a form of art and not just as an entertainment.

This is a fun puzzle game. In the beginning you chose 3 characters, from 7, whom you are going to play the game with. There ars different stages which you can only open with a certain character. So when you finish, you did net get everything that is in the game, you can just start over with different characters. This makes that the game stays a challenge, even if you have played it once before, just because it is different everytime you play with different characters. I like this game a lot.

I loved playing this game, graphics are amazing, I liked the story, I liked the cave man and his sarcasms , I liked each characters` storyline, especially the Monk and the Evil Twin but achieving all the achievements is too damn hard man! Playing all the characters twice or even trice and repeating their story and the main cave stories? I got bored after playing it fully for 2 times! Eventually I just gave up getting all of them.

It's a puzzle-adventure-platformer, but the platforming is boring and the puzzles involve a lot of backtracking with all three of your characters. Compounded with the fact that there is no map means that this game is a chore to play. It is aesthetically very pleasing but the game would have been better as a traditional point-and-click instead of a platformer.

Deceiving for old "Maniac Mansion", "Monkey island" and old school point and click lovers.

Despite a few nice dialogues and references here and there, the puzzles choices are almost non-existant whatever the trio you choose and they do not really require some brainstorming.

Replay value is pretty low due to the very high repeatability (for example when cleaning the achievements ...) and shortness of the game :/.

(Advice: Wait for some steam sales if you really want to test it)

Start out the game and pick a small team out of a bunch of different characters with which you will use to explore various locations in the cave and use their powers to power past a series of different challenges. The characters are fun and unique and play well with any of the challenges.

The enviroment is very well done and makes for an enjoyable experience to run through. Each enviroment is very well crafted and presents puzzles that fit those areas and make sense for the characters as well.

The game is an enjoyable expierence to run through and the puzzles present enough challenge to be both frustrating and enjoying.

Oh, wow, do I love this game. It reminds me of the kinds of games I grew up with as a child and played over and over again until I could do them perfectly. . . The problem with not having all that much money but having way too much time on my hands as a child. That's first world problems for you.

I'm not going to say it's for everyone, though. The humor is rather dry and often at least a little bit macabre (the twins, for instance) but if you like dark humor (which I love) this game will at least be fun for that.

There are a few problems. There are some odd glitches every now and again, though they are not all that frequent (unless you're doing the no deaths runthrough, when every deadly glitch rears its ugly head). The biggest problem is that you can't skip any of the cutscenes or dialogue. Don't get me wrong, both are superb in this game (I'm pretty sure Grey DeLisle voices at least one of them, too) but since this is a game that relies on multiple playthroughs, the skip feature really should have been included. I mean, trying to do the no deaths playthrough alone will probably have you just leaving the room on occasion to do other things while you wait.

Saying all that, this game is just too much fun to pass up. It's worth the price and if it's on sale, doubly so. Oh, and get the soundtrack because it is fantastic!

(Also, I just checked, and Grey actually voices three characters.)
