Pre-orders for Double Fine's The Cave open on Steam

While the exact release date for The Cave hasn't been nailed down quite yet -- it's "January 2013," for now -- the upcoming adventure game from Ron Gilbert and co. at Double Fine Productions will be available shortly. In fact, pre-orders have opened for the Steam version, complete with obligatory Team Fortress 2 items offered as an incentive to purchase early.

They must be doing something right; The Cave is standing strong on the platform's top-sellers list. The fact that we'll be given direct control over the various playable characters should help those who normally shy away from point-and-clicks to stay engaged. While this game has slipped off my radar a bit lately, the more I think about it, the more excited I am to play.
