The Cave

Game play and Storyline

The storyline of The Cave game is based on a talking cave which consists of numerous tunnels. Different characters (a total of seven characters) of the game enter the cave and learn about themselves and their dark secrets throughout their journey in the cave. These seven characters are - a sparse toothed Hillbilly, a Monk, a Knight, the twins, an adventurer, a scientist and a Time Traveller. All these characters are in search of something in the cave like that of brave Knight who is in search of a sword. The player selects any three of these seven characters at the starting of the game. These characters have some special abilities so, it is a careful and strategic work while choosing the three characters. Player can switch between these three characters to solve various hazards and obstructions. There are numerous puzzles to solve by the player throughout their journey. Although each character has a different storyline in their journey in the cave but there are some areas that each of them must go through it. In the co-up mode, up to three players can play the game but it could be done locally.

Game Modes

This game is primarily a single player game in which the player selects any three characters out of the seven characters. Three player co-op mode is also included in the game where up to three people can participate and can handle any three of the characters selected. This co-up mode can be played locally. The difference between these modes is that in single player mode, the player has to keep switching between the three characters he/she selected at the start of the game. But in co-up mode, each participating players can control character of their own.
