Double Fine Productions and SEGA have released the first character trailer for Ron Gilbert’s The Cave, introducing us to the game’s first set of playable characters.
Far from simply introducing The Hillbilly, The Scientist, The Monk, and The Twins, the trailer is packed with tons of new footage showing each character solving the adventure game’s environmental puzzles. Additionally, we find out that The Cave features a “talking cave” that is quite fond of throwing out the word “nay” and laughing maniacally at the prospect of murder.
With the first four of The Cave‘s protagonists now revealed, the next trailer should center around the three remaining playable characters; The Knight, The Adventurer, and The Time Traveler. We can only guess as to what they might be seeking in the cave’s depths.
The Cave is scheduled to launch on Xbox Live Arcade, the PlayStation Network, PC, and Wii U’s eShop in January 2013. Check out the first character trailer below.
