If it's got Gilbert's name on it, I'll eat it up.

Ron Gilbert's Dizzy: The Ultimate Cartoon Adventure

Really, the gameplay seems just like the ZX Spectrum era Dizzy games! Maybe this game will make people realise why they were popular at the time.

Always love a Gilbert game. Did anyone else notice the "Ask me about LOOM" button he had on his shirt pocket? Classic.

You mean the latest masterpiece of fantasy storytelling from Lucasfilm's Brian Moriarty?

It was the calming sound of Brads voice that soothed Ron's angry mind.

I guess just a point that wasn't touched on here, no load times. You just keep progressing deeper and deeper into the cave without any hold-ups. And from what I saw, the adventurer looks to be based on Amelia Earhart, so she is in my first three for sure.

Oh, and it has nothing to do with Plato's Cave. if that means anything to you.

It gives me a very Lost Vikings or Trine feel, if you added a dash of Metroidvania and more characters. Keeping an eye on this one.

So this is what Brad meant by Jovial. Also now that I know it's an adventure game, The Cave is much more appealing to me.

What's the story with Loom? I never played it but from the wiki page it says it wasn't successful and I couldn't find Ron Gilbert in the credits.

@Pop: It's a reference to Secret of Monkey Island where a pirate in the Scumm Bar had a pin that said "Ask me about Loom". If you ask him about it he's just giving you a pitch for the game.

Thanks for this coverage Brad. I knew that Gilbert was making it and I would have to try it, but the game sounds and looks excellent. Since Psychonauts I've loved every IP Double Fine has created, with Stacking being my personal black sheep. I beat it but didn't enjoy myself. This will be a day one purchase regardless. Ron Gilbert is the man. Double Fine Adventure gameplay anytime soon? Also New Grog.

The demo was a lot of fun and the main puzzle was pretty well done. The person playing in front of me got stuck and asked me for help, so we worked through it together. Definitely brought back memories of playing Lucas games with my friend. Can't wait for the release!
