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

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.

This is as classic LucasArts as you can get. a great little point-and-click adventure game with some good puzzles and decent writing. The environments are gorgeous for the resolution.

The biggest problem I had with this game is some vital items are colored EXACTLY like the background so they are incredibly easy to miss unless you pixel hunt every screen. Some puzzles seem to rely more on trial and error than any sort of logic to be divined from the game world. And because of the low resolution, you end up with a tiny screen instead of full screen. I wish there was an option to full screen it, even if it looked worse.

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.

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.

Oh boy. I remember loving this game as a kid, but never being able to beat it, so when I saw it was on Steam I couldn't help but give it a play through!

As you may have guessed, I have a lot of nostagia for this game, but nevertheless, I think it is genuinely a game worth playing. Some might find it slow, but if you like puzzle/mood-oriented games, you'll like it. Also, If you are a fan of games like Day of the Tentacle, Sam and Max, the Indian Jones series and other point-and-click 90s games, you might as well give it a try if you like those kind of game mechanics. **It's important to note, however, that this game has a more serious tone than DOFT, SAM, and the IJ series. You'll probably need to be in the mood sci-fi, of course. ( ;

The puzzles are fun, story is entertaining, but most of all, I think that the artwork and atmosphere/tone is my favorite part of this game.

After playing through several of Telltale's adventure games, as well as the latest Broken Sword, I had worked up a powerful appetite for some old-school point-and-click. I think I had played a demo for Dig waaaaaay back in my youth, and seeing it available on Steam, decided to give it a shot. I'm glad I did.

As far as adventure games go, this is a very solid offering. The graphics do a good job holding up, and most of the visuals are still beautiful. The puzzles can be a bit complex (using alien technology isn't always straightforward), but almost always proceed logically (for a point-and-click). The sci-fi elements aren't particularly deep, but do a good job keeping the story (originally by Steven Spielberg) going. Finally, the dialogue, co-written by Ender's Game author Orson Scott Card, is a bit hokey but has a sort of charm to it.

Overall, people looking for a fun throwback with high production values need look no further.

As far as size of game, quality of puzzles, and artwork go, this game is great.

It's the exceedingly boring dialogue, pointless verbal descriptions/observations, forgettable music, and slow-as-**** movement that forces me to give this game 4/10 at the absolute most.

Simple one of the best point and click games out there. Just recently played it again and still felt awesome and had the same feeling as I played back then. Yes the graphic is not stellar, but who needs eye candy when you have a solid story and puzzles.

I loved this as a kid, and it's still amazing. The story is absolutely captivating, and the voice acting does not disappoint. I wish point and clicks were still made like this. I found myself day-dreaming about the story more often than you'd expect for a game I played when I was 12 (until I replayed recently).

I remember playing this game as a kid and bought it for the nostalgia. Here's my review:

I recommend The Dig only to true fans of the old school point-and-click adventure genre. The puzzles are very abstract and can prove to be a challenge. There's a lot of pixel hunting for hard-to-see objects that kind of blend into the environment. There's a lot of slow walking from section to section. For someone who isn't a fan of this genre, this game will not convert you.

But, I still have to give it a thumbs up because it's a great adventure game at it's core. It has a few faults (the game is over 20 years old, after all), but they are easily overlooked.

The story is AMAZING and unravels in carefully crafted layers that will make you want to keep pressing on to see what happens next. The characters are developed, feel real, and all of them are backed by superb voice acting. The world is vibrant and beautifully illustrated. There's a sense of exploration and mystery that few games manage to capture as well as The Dig. It's a very rewarding experience to complete this game.

If you are a fan of the old school point and click adventure games, and especially the Lucasart's games, then this is a MUST PLAY.

Some of the puzzles made me want to punch a kitten, but the writing was tight and I enjoyed the nostalgia for a time of gaming I'd never been part of.

Lots and lots of walking and clicking and going but WHY at random pieces.

But also entertaining dialogue, a plot that's more or less coherent, and a satisfying conclusion.

First time I played this, way back when, I was hooked and completed it in just over a week. Just could not leave it alone as the story grabbed you and pulled you in and you obviously wanted to find out more.

If you want a great story, perhaps one day even a film, brilliant puzzles and hours of fun (well at times, unless you use a walkthrough) you won't be disappointed with this brilliant little adventure.
