Usually we feature games that are either classic or have been out a while. It provides enough time to reflect on the game and music itself, affording us the opportunity of hindsight. Let’s break from that with this week’s Music Monday as we delve into the music of a game that only came out a few months ago. From the mind of Ron Gilbert (Maniac Mansion, Psychonauts) and Double Fine Productions comes The Cave. Part platformer, part puzzle game, players select three characters from a stable of seven to explore the titular Cave. This is no ordinary spelunking expedition, however. The Cave reflects the darker parts of those who enter, creating a veritable trial of the character’s psyche. It’s a fascinating concept that begs for repeated journeys with difference characters in order to learn about each’s journey. With such a cerebral game with plenty of replay value, it needs to have great music that will enhance the experience and not become tedious during multiple excursions throughout every nook and cranny. Take a listen to the subtle yet affecting music right here:
