I think so. Game has multiple sections you will only be able to access with certain characters.

All I've known about this game since its announcement is that it's by Ron Gilbert, and that was reason enough for me to get the game.
Prepurchased it through Greenmangaming and will get it on US PSN when it gets released.

I personally think the subtitle could've been 'A game by Ron Gilbert' or something along the lines.

I know you've already changed it, but for future grammar nazi reference:

Adventurers = plural ("the adventurers")
Adventurer's = something belonging to an adventurer ("the adventurer's shoes")
Aventurers' = something belonging to multiple adventurers ("the adventurers' courage")

I'm hoping for a crazy hybrid of Maniac Mansion and The Lost Vikings.

Hopefully it'll be better written than Deathspank. I'll wait to see what you guys think of it before I pick it up. Tentatively excited, though.

Tempted to go Wii U simply so I have something new to play on the system, but I'm afraid of poor performance and Nintendo's shitty user system so I'm not sure. :\

I'll buy it at a high price.

Been a fan since the Monkey Island days. Any modern day adventure game that is created by the best of the best has my semen all over it.

Cheers BluWacky.

Ron was asked about save games on twitter last night.

https://twitter.com/grumpygamer/stat...41229390655489

There is only one save game, but it's a damn good save game!

https://twitter.com/grumpygamer/stat...62841125015552

It does remember previous play throughs and does change the game in some ways, so it's not a complete delete.

https://twitter.com/grumpygamer/stat...63766006792192

It's the way I wanted people to experience the game. It was an artist choice. You can't make a mistake in the game, so it's safe.

He was also on the Major Nelson podcast - http://majornelson.com/cast/2013/01/...d-ron-gilbert/
(39:50 - 58:04)

edit,

Also on the PS blogcast - http://blog.us.playstation.com/2013/...evil-may-cave/

I am a bit dissapointed. I was hoping for a game like the old LucasArts-Adventures. But "The Cave" looks like "Trine" or something. Which is not bad, but not what I want form Ron Gilbert.
