Famed Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert has confirmed that he has left Double Fine, with whom he developed The Cave.
“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,” Gilbert explained in a post on his site, Grumpy Gamer. “So many games left to be designed.”
He continued, “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 reveals that, for the short term, he is working on an iOS side project with Clayton Kauzlaric called “Scurvy Scallywags in The Voyage to Discover the Ultimate Sea Shanty: A Musical Match-3 Pirate RPG.”
