Double Fine may be working on its new adventure game funded by Kickstarter backers, but the developer does in fact have another game it is making that will be funded via more traditional means. Sega announced this week that it will publish The Cave in early 2013 for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC via digital download.
The Cave is a side-scrolling adventure game where the player will control three different characters, each with their own skills and traits. The team travels underground and has to solve puzzles in a variety of settings, including " ... a subterranean amusement park and a medieval castle, not to mention a fully armed and ready to launch nuclear-tipped ICBM."
The games development is being led by Ron Gilbert, best known for his work in creating some of the great LucasArts adventure titles of the 1990s. Before joining Double Fine, where he was reunited with his LucasArts colleague Tim Schafer, Gilbert worked at Hothead Games on the original Deathspank titles.
Meanwhile, Double Fines Kickstarter funded game, still only known by its code name "Double Fine Adventure" is currently under a cloud of silence. That game is expected to be released later in 2012.
