The Cave Character Trailer Details The Seven Main Characters

Double Fine has been teasing the characters who are set to star in Ron Gilbert‘s upcoming adventure game, The Cave, since they announced the game late last year.

The game’s only a few days away from release, and the studio has finally released a full length trailer of the game detailing each of the playable characters, a portion of their backstories, and their purpose for venturing into The Cave. If you don’t know, The Cave is a sentient, talking cave, that’s been the destination of visitors for “tens of thousands of years”, serving as a font for answers to all who go there.

While the game looks light-hearted at a glance, the new trailer reveals some of the game’s darker aspects. The twins, for example, lure a guard dog away so they can poison a lady in a house; and the monk, in his search for eternal peace, commits murder along his way to enlightenment.

Along with the twins and the monk, the game’s cast of characters also includes an adventurer, a knight, a scientist, a hillbilly, and a time traveler.

Just watch the trailer below:

The Cave is dated for a January 23 release date on the PC, where it’ll also be available on Linux and Mac through Steam. Pre-ordering it will get you some items for TF2.
