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 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.

Despite a few unintuitive puzzles and a healthy dose of scifi cheesiness (particularly in the third act), The Dig deserves its place on many 'Best Adventure Games of All Time' lists. I first played it twenty years after its release, yet I still found it absorbing and enjoyable.

High-quality production values and voice-acting (for the time), excellent music, and a decent message beyond the typical 'beware of technological solutions to existential problems' scifi standard: ('don't aspire toward a next life to the detriment of the one you're already living') .

The Dig is a hard game to recommend. This is not to say that it is without its merits, as there are a great many things it does quite well. The game’s opening is effective and catching with a wonderful sense of mystery and foreboding. As the story progresses, the plot does take some odd turns but I found I enjoyed it. And it must be stated that even late into the game the art direction is fantastic and settings feel alien and strange.

That said, there are some big issues holding The Dig back: namely the puzzles. After the opening segment, the puzzles quickly dive into nearly incomprehensible territory. A great many of them are just frustrating and lacking any sort of direction or hints. While this may be intentional, as exploring an alien world without guidance would undoubtedly be trying, it doesn’t make for a fun game.

Overall, The Dig does have virtues but they are obscured by some terrible puzzle design. I’d recommend the game only if one is exceptionally patient or willing to use a walkthrough.

I remember playing this game with my brothers back in the day, when I saw it was available on Steam I got pretty excited and played it through in one afternoon. I did have to look at a walkthrough a couple times, not sure how we managed to beat this as kids.
Fun game, great story, difficult puzzles and lots of good memories for me.
