The Dig was one of LucasArts’ final adventure games; the genre was on its last legs, but they put out this game anyway.
Some of the puzzles were a bit obscure, but for the most part, the game avoided the completely random problems that plagued some adventure games (King’s Quest, I’m looking at you.).
The player controls
Robert Patrick Boston Low (voiced by Robert Patrick) as he leads a team sent to investigate an asteroid on a collision course with earth. Disaster ensues, and eventually the team is transported to a distant alien world they dub Cocytus.
