Ron Gilbert Departs from Double Fine Productions With Completion of The Cave
The man behind Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion seeks new worlds to conquer.
The Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert has bid farewell to Double Fine Productions. After serving as the lead on The Cave, Gilbert is now moving on. All those wander not being lost and whatnot.
In a blog post, he said, “Now that The Cave is done and unleashed on an unsuspecting world (ok, we did do a bunch of PR, so it wasn’t exactly unsuspecting), it’s time for me to move on from Double Fine and plot my next move.
“I want to thank all the amazing people at Double Fine for all their hard work on The Cave. 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.”
Gilbert won’t be off the radar completely though. He’s currently working with DeathSpank co-creator Clayton Kauzlaric on Scurvy Scallywags in The Voyage to Discover the Ultimate Sea Shanty: A Musical Match-3 Pirate RPG for iOS.
