Figured this would be a good thread since there are tons of great indie and downloadable games out there. So what are you guys playing? The Cave The Cave came out earlier this week and is the new game from Double Fine, the studio behind Brutal Legend, Psychonauts, and a few others. It's also the brainchild of Ron Gilbert, who worked on some of the great adventure titles of all time back at LucasArts, including the immortal Monkey Island. I preordered it and have played through it once already (it's not very long...about 3-4 hours). It's a lot of fun. It's a side-scrolling puzzle/platformer where you take three characters (out of seven total) through a strange cave (the game is narrated by the cave itself) and have them face their dark pasts. The stories for the three characters I used were all pretty interesting. Each character has a unique area of the cave that is only accessible with that particular character in your group, so essentially you'll have to play through the game three times to see everything, although the third playthrough would only include one new area. My first playthrough was with the Knight, the Time Traveler, and the Adventurer. The Time Traveler had the best area, which required you to solve puzzles in three different periods of time (present, stone age, and the future) simultaneously. The game has a good dose of comedy, although unfortunately it's not quite as funny as some of Gilbert's previous works. All in all, definitely worth playing. It's 15 bucks and will probably take 8-10 hours to finish completely. Not a bad value and the puzzles are tough at times without being nonsensical (anyone who has played old-school adventure games knows what I mean by this). I only got stuck two or three times, and never for more than five to ten minutes. The platforming is a bit stiff and you climb ladders and ropes way too slow, but overall the first playthrough was a lot of fun. http://store.steampowered.com/app/221810/ The game is also on the PS3, WiiU, and 360. I played it on the PC using a Windows controller.
