SEGA has announced a publishing deal with Double Fine for a new game called The Cave .
The adventure game comes from the mind of Ron Gilbert and apparently it’s so odd and compelling that it can only be described as ‘odd and compelling.’ The Cave will be coming to consoles and PCs for digital download worldwide in early 2013.

“As SEGA continues to expand our digital gaming catalog, we’ve put a lot of effort into finding truly original experiences we can help bring to life. Both Ron and the team at Double Fine are experienced and deeply creative, and we value the chance to work with them on The Cave,” said Haruki Satomi, Senior Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA.
“The concept of The Cave has been bouncing around in my head for many, many years, and then the little voices that tell me to do things said it was time to make the game,” added Ron Gilbert. “I’m thrilled to be working with amazingly talented folks at Double Fine and ecstatic that the team at SEGA believes in adventure games and quirky ideas.”
Asked for a quote, The Cave said, “There are those who say I’m not rooting for everyone who ventures down here but that’s not true. Not true at all.” He then followed up with “But I’m also not above a good chuckle when someone falls in lava.” The Cave then began to chuckle.
