The Cave Startbild

The story:
The search for an occult relic takes you to a city called Innsmouth, where strange rumours and stories are told.
Your good friend, professor Benton, researcher and specialist on occult objects, tipped you off to look for a cave in the rough terrains near Innsmouth.
According to ancient tales, one of the many keys to finding the solution for the mystery surrounding the -Great Old Ones- can be found there.
After a relatively short search in the rough, you discover the entrance to the cave. From now on, you are on your own.
The cave was the first adventure in a new line of retro games for the Commodore 64.
The goal was, to capture the flair of the old basic graphical adventures from 1983 – 1985 again and to revive it.
The game is based around a so called 2-word parser system and was optimised for ease of use and speedy control.
In its original version from 1985, The Cave only held a few rooms. It was reprogammed from scratch in March 2005
and updated 2010 for the english release.
