Ron Gilbert is something of a legend in gaming circles; he's the genius behind such LucasArts classics as Maniac Mansion and The Secret of Monkey Island.

He's currently working alongside fellow ex-LucasArts staffer Tim Schafer at Double Fine Productions, and The Cave is his latest venture.

Described as a 'Metroidvania'-style platform romp, it tasks the player with selecting a trio of characters from a cast of seven. You must then use the unique skills of each protagonist to overcome the various puzzles scattered throughout the titular cave.

The Cave has already been confirmed as a digital download title for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade, but at the recent PAX 2012 event, Double Fine representative Greg Rice stated that it is also heading to the Wii U eShop.
