The Cave Endings Guide – How To Get Good or Bad Ending

By   /   Jan 28, 2013

Yes, believe it or not there are multiple endings for each character in Double Fine’s latest adventure game. I was a bit surprised to learn this fact too, as it turns out there is just one little choice right at the end you have to make (repetitively) in order to get the hidden endings.

Each of the characters in The Cave can get a good and bad ending. Here are the steps to both of the endings:

Bad Ending:

  • Go through the game as normal whatever your characters and find the Stolen Trinket.
  • Go to the Gift Shop and trade it in with the clerk to obtain your Prized Possession.
  • Exit the Cave via the ladder to the right.

This will trigger the Bad Ending for the character in question where you will see a short story told through some illustrations.

Good Ending:

  • Go through the game as normal whatever your characters and find the Stolen Trinket.
  • Go to the Gift Shop and trade it in with the clerk to obtain your Prized Possession.
  • Now this is where we do something different, instead of walking out, interact with the clerk again to give back the Prized Possession. The clerk will refuse to take it and say that you deserve to keep it. Try to trade it a total of 3 times and he will finally take it back.
  • Having completed this selfless action, proceed to the ladder to the right and exit the Cave.

This sequence of events will trigger the Good Ending for your characters in which the short story told through illustrations will end on a happy note. You can watch these endings Here and Here.

And that’s it for The Cave endings folks!
