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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Whenever I play a new point-and-click adventure game, I always hope it lives up to the experience I had with my favorite adventure game, King's Quest 6. I grew up playing many point-and-click adventure games with King's Quest 6 and Myst being my favorite. I came into this not expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised how cinematic the whole game felt. Although it doesn't live up to the great writing and story of King's Quest 6, it definitely is a must buy if you are a fan of point-and-click adventure games. The puzzles weren't too difficult, but I, admittedly, lost my patience on some.

TL;DR

Pros:
- Cinematic story and animations
- Great voice acting
- Most puzzles meshed well with the story (didn't feel artificial or random)

Cons:
- Sometimes identifying objects were difficult in a scene given the pixelation.
- Some puzzles were very difficult without leaving any clues to help (requires a lot of patience and tinkering)

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!

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.

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 :)

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.

'The Dig' charts the otherworldy voyage of three astronauts in their attempt to make heads or tails of mysteriously neglected alien technology after being transported there from an orbital mission above Earth. With LucasArts developing and a combination of Orson Scott Card and Steven Spielberg writing the game's story, you would expect something of a fairly high calibre. Unfortunately that isn't the case.

Atmospherically the game is rich - warm coastal seascapes and alien sunsets accompanied by a wonderful ambient score which benefits from rich infusions of Wagnerian excerpts (the third track 'Ghosts' is sublime). The history of the defiled planet is intriguing to say the least, and labouring to uncover the secrets is actually pretty fun. But what drags down the game are the repetitve puzzles (I was absolutely sick of the rods), the embarrassingly dated animated and 3D sequences, the sub-standard dialogue, and a cast of boring characters. The ending which I chose was an incompatibly sappy finish to an otherwise cynical and forlorn narrative, but the other one could be better - it's not like I could have saved right before the end and watched both, since there's no way to save your progress from within the launcher. It was an admittedly tiring straight six hours.

If you're a fan of point and click adventure games then this is half-heartedly recommended, but if not then it's maybe better to just leave The Dig alone.
