DOUBLE FINE GAME CLUB: THE CAVE  (starting 23rd Feb)

The Double Fine Game Club is a community run weekly event where interested gamers play through and come together to discuss what they do and don’t like about a particular game (sort of like a book club, but for games). We usually aim to play one or two hours a week, and we normally have somebody streaming the current game so that those who don’t have the game or don’t feel like playing it again can still feel involved.

Discussion takes place here in the forums and on the Double Fine Game Club home page. Game Club is a very informal weekly chat, and everyone is welcome!

  Previous game: Time Gentlemen Please!
  Next Game: Sam & Max: Culture Shock

Alrighty, so alphatt will be streaming this one for us (all didn’t go well ^_^ ).

I’ll be streaming a live chat with Ron at the beginning of the session, relaying questions from IRC, so make sure to arrive on time!


I finished my first full runthrough yesterday, and can’t wait to do my next! The Linux version has a few rough edges, but I’m massively enjoying the game itself so far. Can’t wait to chat with everybody about it on the weekend smile

My house is going to be at the other end of a skype chat with Ron Gilbert.
It’ll be almost like he’s in our living room.
I’m sorry, but I’m totally geeking out here.
Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Now I’m not sure I can make it in time, I hope so!

Something not game related but that I’d really want to know is what is Ron going to do next, Reds or work on a new game?

Here’s a question for Ron, even if he probably has answered it in an interview somewhere:

Has the idea for The Cave evolved over all these years or is the game we see today what you had originally envisioned?

Nice work y’all.  Good turn out this week!  ^_^
Could the presence of the great and powerful Ron Gilbert have had anything to do with that, I wonder?
