Über dieses Spiel

EIN WELTRAUMABENTEUER VON SEAN CLARK IN ZUSAMMENARBEIT MIT FILMEMACHER STEVEN SPIELBERG
Ein Asteroid in der Größe eines kleinen Mondes ist auf Kollisionskurs mit der Erde und nur der NASA Veteran Boston Low hat die Kompetenz diesen zu stoppen. Mit dabei ist die preisgekrönte Journalistin Maggie Robbins und der international berühmte Geologe Ludger Brink.
Sobald der unberechenbare Asteroid auf einen sicheren Orbit befördert ist, führt das Trio eine Routine-Untersuchung der steinigen Oberfläche durch.
Aber was sie da entdecken ist alles andere als Routine.
Low, Brink und Robbins lösen aus Versehen einen Mechanismus aus, der den Asteroid in ein kristalartiges Raumschiff verwandelt. Das Team wird durch die Galaxie geschleudert zu einem Planeten, der so verlasssen und trostlos ist, das Brink Ihn Cocytus nennt, nach dem 9. Kreis der Hölle in Dante’s Inferno. Die kahle Landschaft war offensichtlich einst das Zuhause einer hochentwickelten Zivilisation mit Überresten filigraner Architektur, fortgeschrittener Technologie und einem sehr complex verstrickten Tunnelsytem.
Aber nirgends sind Cocytans zu finden.
Wer waren die ursprünglichen Bewohner dieses einst so reichen Imperiums? Was sind diese Erscheinungen, die ab und zu auf geheimnisvolle Weise auftreten? Warum wurden Low, Robbins, und Brink hierher gebracht? Wie kann Low sein Team zusammenhalten angesichts dieser Ungewissheiten? Um zur Erde zurüzukehren muss das Team nach Antworten suchen, nicht nur auf der Oberfläche des Planeten sondern auch tief in sich selbst.
LucasArts und Legende Steven Spielberg presentieren ein episches Abenteuer das sich kopfüber in die Tiefen des Unbekannten stürzt. Und Sie mitnimmt.
  • Fast 200 Orte und hunderte Puzzle
  • Robert Patrick von T2 als Stimme von Boston Low
  • Spezialeffekte von Industrial Light & Magic
  • Dialog geschrieben von dem preisgekrönten Sci Fi Autors Orson Scott Card
  • Wagnerische Musik setzt den epischen Ton

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.

The Dig is my favorite adventure game of all of Lucasarts' classics and that era of gaming in general. The whole thing is worthy of having Spielberg's name associated with it. The voice acting is on point, the story is great from start to finish, the music suits the atmosphere perfectly and the environments are engrossing. What happens to Brink is unforgettable. Every sci-fi buff should play this game. It would never happen but it deserves to have a movie made out of it.

A little slow paced compared to other Lucas Arts games. It's still fun though and has an intresting story, although you will probably need a walkthru to finish this game. I know I did.

The Dig is a point-and-click adventure game with a fantastic story that would make for a convincing movie. An oldie but a goodie.
The environments are all gorgeous, and the puzzles are often very difficult, but playing this game through all the way is worth it (even if you have to use a guide here and there and everywhere in order to do so).

Additionally try Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis if you wish to play another game which could easily double as a movie.

This is one of the best and also one of my favorite adventure game from LucasArts. Great story and challenging puzzles will provide some good time with this game. I remembered about this game when I got it together with other LucasArts games from Adventure Pack - best pack ever for any point-and-click fan! Playing it again after so many years was so much fun!
If you are big fan of classic adventure games, this one is - must play!

One of the very first games I played way back when. I love Lucasarts pointandclick games and even though the story never changes, I've replayed them over and over again. Storyline is engaging, characters are well done and the soundtrack is fitting and atmospheric. One gripe is a massive plothole at the end, one of the character's apperance changes dramatically and that isn't explained in the game. I have read the book version of this game and it is explained in there though.

The story in the game is brilliant. A lot of memorable moments. Graphics is very low resolution, but the feel of the game has stood up against time. If you never played this but enjoy the Lucas Arts point-n-click classics, buy this! I would rate it the most epic Lucas Arts adventure ever.

This is an old classic scifi adventure where you get abducted by aliens because they want to teach you what happens if you get addicted to crystals. If you have a crystal addiction, you should play this.

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.

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.

A legendary game, yet one of LucasArts' lesser known pieces due to its somewhat-awkward presentation. The DIG started as an idea by Steven Spielbeg that he soon abandoned with nowhere to take it, handing it over to his friend George Lucas' studio to make something out of it.
What they created was something magical. An odyssey into space and the man's determination to survive and explore.

Playing as the aging astronaut Commander Boston Low, you must traverse a strange and marvellously deadened world beyond our reach, of a planet long abandoned by most of its former inhabitants. Joined by his two crewmates being the severe reporter Maggie Robbins and the cool-minded geologist Ludger Brink, Boston must use his natural survival instincts and quick-witted skills of human engineering to try and formulate a way to escape, explore, and uncover the origins of this mysterious planet, and how they must find their way back home.

While the DIG may not be LucasArts' best work by far, it is certainly not one you should miss if you love their library. The graphics are not the best, being that while the LucasArts style works well for more cartoony games such as Sam & Max or Monkey Island, it's a little more uncertain to do so with actual human characters and as a result they can look rather off during cutscenes. Like "monkeys wearing human masks" off.

Nevertheless the rest of the game shines through with its pure atmosphere. The graphics for its weird alien backgrounds are gorgeous, the sound design is just absolutely at the top of its game more than ever from LucasArts with roaring waves, howling winds, deep resonance within space and the most oddest of creatures wallowing and shrieking from all around you.

The dialogue is rather snarky in about 80% of its places but that only makes it more fun with the likes of Steve Blum and Robert Patrick delivering the most deadpan of deliveries. The puzzles are...infamous to say the least and in truth one or two of them could have been much better designed. I'll give you a hint for free, the head of the skeleton is not meant to be on the top left, but bottom right.

Regardless, I say go ahead if you love LucasArts' work, and try out this gem from the past that, while is a little rough around the edges and is perhaps at the lower end of their library, is nevertheless one worthy of playing if you are a fan of such games.

If you're into classic point & click games, particularly Lucas Arts games, then you'll love this one. It's a nice adventure that has a few twists and surprises, a cool alternate ending, and a great movie-like atmosphere, to say the least. The puzzles range from easy to quite difficult (unless of course you watch a YouTube walkthrough of it :p). A very well made game.

Compared to other games in general, I give this an 8/10, but compared to other games of the same genre, I give this a 10/10.

It's a great classic point-and-click adventure game from LucasArts. I've also played Full Throttle and Full Throttle is in my experience a much better game. The problem I had with The Dig is that some puzzles we're way too hard and time consuming. But that's also the beauty of these kind of games. The puzzles can't be too obvious and it should be pretty hard to figure things out. You don't want to just come in to a room and finish everything in it; in the first few seconds. So anyway if you want a nostalgic trip back to a good 90's point-and-click game written by Steven Spielberg, you can't go wrong with The Dig!

I really loved the story in The Dig.. They even added voice acting in it.. It's an old game, but that should'nt stop you from trying it out, its a great point and click adventure with a good story. It deserves to be recommended imo.

This is such a good game. A total classic point-and-click game with excellent music, graphics (for it's time) and voice acting. The store line is so complex, amazing, and not at all what you would expect. The puzzles are challenging, and yes, there is some "back-and-forth" that is required, (i.e. you will have to go from one side of the game to the other to get an object in order to move on). The back-and-forth though, while mildly annoying is totally worth it, in the context of the puzzles over-all, and the plot which continually makes you question, "what is going on here?"

One of the best made games of the era in my opinion. Play it if you're a lover of classic point-and-click, or if you've never played a classic, PNC, you should take a break from the "moderns" every once in a while, and see what modern games have been built upon :)

The Dig is one of the best science fiction games ever created, maybe even one of the best science fiction stories ever told. Sure it's a dated game, but in my personal opinion the story is what counts. The puzzles offer some difficult challenges to the player. If you can't figure out a puzzle, by all means, use the internet (It's better than complaining how you spent countless hours because you suck at the game.) The soundtrack was created by Michael Land, and it is definitely one of the best soundtracks I've ever heard.

As for the "Outdated feel" of the game, I wouldn't let that sort of thing bother me since it's full of AMAZING and UNIQUE layouts, backgrounds, characters and creatures. The cast is brilliant. Robert Patrick (T-1000 from T2) lent his voice talent as Boston Lowe. You get some great one-liners any classic and true Lucasarts fan would hold dear to their heart.

This game is amazing. I would love to see it as a film some day.
