    Haven't really been paying attention to this game, but the comparisons to Maniac Mansion have really got me interesting (taking a party of characters, different abilities)

    Checked out the trailers on XBL the other night, I'm pretty excited for this now.

    Yep, it's under "C" rather than "T" though!

    75/100 so far on Metacritic.

    Despite all of those hooks, the forum search will still fail to find it in a months time.
    So true, I've only just bloody found it!!

    6/10 from Eurogamer.de

    6/10 in Edge.

    Is it just me or has Double Fines output not been exactly stellar recently, considering the profile and experience of the studio?

    Was definitely getting this, but now I'm not so sure. If it we're sub-10, I'd bite, no question.

    My concern with Double Fine games has always been that they look good/unique, they're fun for a while, but they're not full of lasting appeal (and they don't make their publishers money).

    Apart from that though ;)

    The Cave on the other hand is perfect, GOTY for certain ;)

    ok, just finished the free trial, was about ot buy it but held off, not 100% sure why the "meh" reviews had me concerned slightly, especially as it is obvious what they mean with the first quest The Hotdog and just how much needless running around is required to complete it

    Just read a 4/10 review and they said the first quest is the highlight of the game!!

    Just a post, forum does funny things to threads when last item is a deleted message.

    Tssk!

    Before the thread got locked in the Wii U folder, I politely asked whether you could gladly play 'The Cave' on the Wii U's GamePad whilst the television has been taken over ... does anyone know?

    No, it is only used for selecting which character to skip to
