Legendary game designers Ken and Roberta Williams make their grand return with the launch of Colossal Cave. Based on the text adventure from the late 1970s, this is a first-person, 3D reimagining of the title. The original is considered one of the most influential games of all time, so this more modern homage should be an interesting excursion at the very least. If you're curious to try it, you're in luck: the game is out on PS5 today, 19th January 2023. A PS4 version is also on the way.
Colossal Cave is a game about exploring a mysterious cave network, where you'll come across friendly and not-so-friendly characters and discover all sorts of hidden treasures. It's a non-linear adventure that's intended to be replayed multiple times in order to see everything. It sounds delightfully old school — we're very curious to see how it shakes out.
In addition to the regular PS5 release, it appears the game will also get a PSVR2 version in future. Caught by Gematsu, a now-removed trailer basically confirms it's heading to Sony's new hardware, though there's no release date attached just yet.
