ETT RYMDÄVENTYR AV SEAN CLARK I SAMARBETE MED FILMMAKEREN STEVEN SPIELBERG
En asteroid stor som en liten måne håller på att krascha mot jorden och endast NASA-veteran Boston Low har de rätta kunskaperna att stoppa den. Med på äventyret är prisbelönta journalisten Maggie Robbins och den internationellt kända geologen Ludger Brink.
När den oberäkneliga asteroiden är förd till en säker bana, gör trion en rutinmässig undersökning av den steniga yta.
Vad de avslöjar är allt annat än rutin.
Låg, Brink och Robbins utlöser oavsiktligt en mekanism som omvandlar asteroiden till en kristalliknande rymdfarkost. Laget rusar igenom galaxen till en planet så öde att Brink ger den namnet Cocytus efter den 9:e cirkeln av helvetet i Dantes inferno. Det dystra landskapet var uppenbarligen en gång hem till en mycket utvecklad civilisation med rester av avancerad arkitektur, avancerad teknik och ett intrikat nätverk av underjordiska tunnlar.
Men inga Cocytaner.
Vilka var de ursprungliga invånarna i detta en gång rika imperium som blivit ödemark? Vilka är dessa uppenbarelser som mystiskt visar sig då och då? Varför har Low, Robbins, och Brink blivit förda till denna plats? Och hur kan Low hålla sitt team från att tappa sammanhållningen med tanke på denna osäkerhet? För att återvända till jorden måste de gräva efter svar, både på planetens yta och djup inom sig.
Från de kombinerade talangerna i LucasArts och legendariska Steven Spielberg kommer ett episk äventyr som störtar huvudstupa in i själva kärnan av det okända. Och tar dig med.
  • Nästan 200 platser och hundratals pussel
  • Robert Patrick från T2 som Boston Lows röst
  • Specialeffekter från Industrial Light & Magic
  • Dialog från prisbelönta sci-fi författaren Orson Scott Card
  • Lockande Wagnermusik sätter den episka tonen

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.

One of the most compelling atmospheres in a video game. The music, graphics and mood come together in a way that takes you somewhere special. A great stormy evening game.

En good old classic! [Värdt att skaffa och skulle gärna se en re-make på detta spel]

Spelet börjar med att en astroid som håller på att krocka med jorden, och därmed börjar man i ett räddningsuppdrag för att ändra astroidens kollitionskurs ,för att sedan visar sig leda till något helt annat. Besättningen upptäcker att astroiden är ett rymdskepp ,som tar besättningen vidare till en helt ny planet ! Därefter börjar äventyret..


Possetiva sidor;
+Spännande story
+komposinerad och stämmningsfull orkestermusik
+Spännande sci-fi miljöer
+Ett enkelt klick och peka med många pusselösningar (där man inte dör gång på gång ifall man gör fel) - som passar de flesta åldrar.


Negativa sidor.
- (har inget negativt att säga om detta spel ,förutom för er som kanske är lite gnälliga över att den inte har nutidens graffik).

ps. Förvisso ett retrospel för er i den yngre genrationen ,men vill ni ha en spännande story som finns i få spel idag så rekommenderar jag verkligen detta ,inte minst bara utav nostalgiska skäll utan för att det är spännande.

Made in a time different than ours, this is a game where atmosphere, an actual script, and lots of brain twisting puzzles make up for the lack of real time raytraced imagery and other cheap tricks of today. A challenging-to-mildly-infuriating difficulty keeps players from feeling that the gameplay is without rewards - once the puzzles are solved. In all a great classic "a la Lucasarts"-game that compares well to Zak McKracken, Maniac Mansion, and the Indiana Jones adventure games.

Well recommended!

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.

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') .

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.
