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 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 really hard one with it's puzzles, but worth the atmosphere.

Unlike the other Lucas Arts games The Dig takes a deeper look in science fiction. Discovering and exploring a lost civilization, pondering on humanity's existence, it's condition - that's all that this game is about.

I found that the story has a few darker turns, but occasionally it has that cheesiness that in some of the cut scenes. I felt that a couple were overplayed and were not appropriate if one was really in this situation. They have a certain Lucas silliness honestly.

I recommend to get this game if you liked Myst. This being it's unnoticed brother with a tendency for, like Myst a couple of not perfect puzzles.
The game is slow and at times sluggish - you can't skip dialogue lines and some animations take too long.
A great ambient soundtrack though makes the ride worth it. It's one of these nice commentaries on what lies there in the stars and the limits of a human being.

A big thank you to The Vintage Feeling for being a really nice person and gifting a copy of the game to me.

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.

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.

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.
