For those who don’t know who Ron Gilbert is, he’s the guy behind the critically acclaimed, and absolutely hilarious, Secret of Monkey Island. His most recent work was The Cave, which you can read my review of. Yesterday, he made a blog post stating that he was now leaving Double Fine studios, having finished The Cave with them. Thankfully, it seems Ron left Double Fine on good terms, taking the time to thank the studio for their help with The Cave.
“I want to thank all the amazing people at Double Fine for all their hard work on The Cave,” he writes. “It was a true pleasure to work with every one of them over the past two years. So much fun. I will miss them all. And of course to Tim for creating the opportunity to come there and make The Cave.”
Ron Gilbert also outlined what he has planned in the immediate future. Along with releasing behind-the-scenes pictures for The Cave, he stated that he’s working on an iOS game called Scurvy Scallywags in The Voyage to Discover the Ultimate Sea Shanty: A Musical Match-3 Pirate RPG. Rolls right off the tounge, doesn’t it?
And before you ask, he didn’t state whether or not this new game is based on that pirate song sequence from Curse of Monkey Island.
