A DEEP SPACE ADVENTURE BY SEAN CLARK IN COLLABORATION WITH FILMMAKER STEVEN SPIELBERG
An asteroid the size of a small moon is on a crash course toward Earth, and only NASA veteran Boston Low has the expertise to stop it. Along for the ride are award-winning journalist Maggie Robbins and internationally renowned geologist Ludger Brink.
Once the wayward asteroid is nuked into a safe orbit, the trio conducts a routine examination of the rocky surface.
What they uncover is anything but routine.
Low, Brink and Robbins unwittingly trigger a mechanism that transforms the asteroid into a crystal-like spacecraft. The team is hurtled across the galaxy to a planet so desolate, Brink is moved to name it Cocytus, after the 9th circle of Hell in Dante’s inferno. The bleak landscape was obviously once home to a highly evolved civilization, with remnants of sophisticated architecture, advanced technology and an intricate network of underground tunnels.
But no Cocytans.
Who were the original inhabitants of this once rich empire-turned-wasteland? What are those apparitions that mysteriously appear from time to time? Why have Low, Robbins, and Brink been brought to this place? And how can Low keep his team from unraveling in the face of such uncertainty? To return to Earth, they must dig for answers, both on the planet’s surface and deep within themselves.
From the combined talents of LucasArts and legendary Steven Spielberg comes an epic adventure that plunges headlong into the very core of the unknown. And takes you with it.
  • Nearly 200 locations and hundreds of puzzles
  • Robert Patrick of T2 as the voice of Boston Low
  • Special effects contributed by Industrial Light & Magic
  • Dialogue contributed by award-winning sci-fi writer Orson Scott Card
  • Alluring Wagnerian musical score sets the epic tone

The Dig is a decent LucasArts adventure, but not one of my favorites. It does have an interesting story and the classic LucasArts feel, but... I don't like the setting and some of the puzzles are really frustrating. Not just hard, but frustrating. As for the setting - it feels a lot like the end of Indiana Jones and Fate of Atlantis - I love that game, but I can't stand the final setting in the Atlantis itself. I guess I just don't like the weird scenery :)

Overall - a good, but not a great game.

I complted this back when it first came out. I enjoyed it. It still stands up well today. If you like point-and-click adventures, then you know what to expect and you won't be disappointed.

8/10 Would blow up an asteroid again.

Enjoyable story with just enough interesting twists to keep you interested, and while the dialog can drone on at times it has enough personality and charm to make listening worth while. While the game is on the short side - only about six hours if you know what you're doing - the story is good enough to make it enjoyable if you're into sci-fi. Puzzles aren't anything too special, but aside from a couple that might have you stuck for quite a while they aren't too hard. Not sure it's worth the usual six bucks, but if you catch it on sale it's definitely worth it.

Great first half, loses a bit in the second act. I recommend playing along with Day9 and his Mostly Walking series.

Played The Dig with my brother when I was a kid and it was really awe-inspiring. Still hope that one day some one will take on this story and make a movie out of it. Brilliant voice-acting and believable characters. Highly recommended.

I would have to say to tread carefully on this game. If you are a die-hard sci-fi fan, Lucasarts adventure game fan, or returning fan (played the game in your younger years) then I don't see a reason not to get this game. For the rest of us the game is mediocre at best. The best part of the game is the storyline. I found myself on the edge of my seat wondering what would befall Boston Low and his space crew, as they try to find their way back to earth. Sadly other than that, the game lacks in many of the other areas. The games tone is very serious, too serious in my eyes, lacking the humor that a majority of the Lucasarts games present. The art doesn't look good for this game anymore either. Games like Monkey Island or Indiana Jones, while drawn much the same as this game can get away with some of this old look because they are not about space and the future. This game just doesn't seem to fit right at all for 2016, 20 years since its release. Finally, the biggest reason that the game is sort of a flop by Lucasarts standards comes down to the puzzles. These puzzles are also some of the most abstract and difficult I have ever encountered. While I like a good challenge, I feel like the best games are balanced enough that you are able to solve puzzles without having to look at a guide in order to solve it and also not a game that the puzzles are spoon-fed to you. This one has many segments that a guide seems like an absolute must. The amount of time that is spent trying to figure out what to do slows down the pace of the game leaving the gamer as lost as the space crew gets. In the end I think that the puzzles were enough to get me to down vote this game. No this game is not horrible, but I don't think that as many people will enjoy the game as has been made out by other reviews.

near the end of the game, when i tried to save it would say "game was NOT saved" and i was never able to fix it. however, i was close enough to just finish the game up so it didn't matter.

older game but definitely still good. pretty static backgrounds and neat animation/cutscenes.

8/10

Pretty great Sci Fi Lucasarts point-and-click adventure game, with memorable atmosphere, music, and voice acting. The story is fairly solid, and most of the puzzles are logical and intuitive. It's not perfect, and it's not the greatest game in Lucasarts' catalogue, but it's a solid game every adventure game or sci fi fan should try.

I had this game as a kid and saved at the wrong time. I would have had to start over and about 19 years later I did. So satisfying to finally finish it! Great point and click game. All I can really say is if you liked Lucas Arts games in the '90 this is worth while game.

O que falar do THE DIG ?
Não sei, poderia escrever um livro sobre esse jogo, simplesmente FANTASTICO!
Joguei durante minha infância, no Windows 95, e demorei MUUUUIIIIITTTTOOO tempo para zerá-lo. Claro, um jogo como este, não vale a pena usar WALKTROUGHS, já que a graça do game é você desvendar os mistérios.
Muito bom a steam ter colocado para venda, só acho que também deveriam colocar outros clássicos, como Full Trotthle e a Maldição da Ilha dos Macacos (Único da série não vendido na Steam).
Bom, fica aí o desafio para você tentar zerá-lo em menos de 1 mês sem usar DETONADOS, topa?

10/10

Péssimo!!!

O jogo em sí é otimo, joguei quando era criança mas naquela época tinha o CD e vinha a tradução para o português. Agora online não tem tradução, está em inglês. Quis que meu filho jogasse mas só decepção. Inflelizmente

Originally planned as an episode of Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories, then later a movie, It was deemed too expensive to produce at that time. Couple years later you bring together Spielberg, Orson Scott Card, Brian Moriarty (who was behind some of Infocom's greats) and LucasArts and you get The Dig.

Interesting development history aside, i really enjoy this game. I got it when it came out back in '95 and still own the original box and soundtrack. The Dig wasn't your typical lighthearted LucasArts adventure game dealing with survival and death on an alien world. In some cases that made for a challenging game, as a lot of the alien devices required a good bit of finagling to figure out how to solve them. Back then, there wasn't an internet readily available to turn to when you got stumped. The game could get frustrating in that aspect but there was still plenty to like; The serious nature of the setting, Robert Patrick voicing the main character (LucasArts games were getting a lot better in the voice department when they started getting Talkie versions of their games), the alien landscapes and the ambient music by Michael Land.

Yes, i grew up in the golden age of adventure games, so i am going to be a bit bias about these gems that i love. Point n' Click is pretty much ingrained into my being and will always feel second nature to me. Doesn’t mean someone can't stumble upon The Dig, give an almost 20 year old game a spin and still find something really special. These hand drawn graphics still remain pleasing to me heh.

The Dig is a facinating piece of DOS game history. The development history of the game is almost as interesting as the game itself, and I recommend you look it up.

By modern gaming standards, I'm not sure if I would call it a 'good' game but there are lots of good things about it.
These good things include gorgeous visuals and amazing sound design.

I have to be brutally honest, though. You are probably not going to be able to complete this game without a walkthrough. This game is full of classic point and click puzzle bs. Items you're supposed to interact with can be hard to find among the lush background art, and the game's hints can be cryptic at best. This game's puzzles will make you feel things. Most of these things will be frustration, but it's a very special type of frustration you don't get from modern games. I admit that it's a rewarding feeling to figure out a puzzle on your own

A big selling point of the game is the cinematic writing, and there definitely is a cinematic feel. The quality of the writing declines as the game progresses, though. It feels rushed in my opinion.There are some genuinely funny moments, but at times you may be frustrated with the characters' stupidity. Actually, this is sort of a plus for me since I found it amusing. Then again, I think Plan 9 From Outer Space is a science fiction masterpiece, so your mileage may vary.

I still enjoyed the game though, Maybe it's because I grew up on this stuff. But Despite it's flaws, you can tell there was a lot of effort put in. For the price, I say give it a shot.

Old-school Lucasarts Adventure games are famous for setting the standard in storyline and puzzles. The Dig was at the epitome of this company's era and it still shines bright. Great graphics for its time and a well voiced cast made this stand out and it still does due its storyline. The puzzles can be very difficult at times, but the challenge is well rewarded with the continuation of its storyline. You are part of a crew that goes to explore a meteor that has approached Earth. As you explore the meteor you find out that it's not a meteor and soon you are sent to the depths of space where you have figure out how to come back to Earth alive.

One of my all time favorite games as a kid. Lucasarts made a fantastic one on this, and even had a novel written along the same story.
