Earlier tonight, famed Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert made it known in a blog post that he is leaving Double Fine, having now finished and released his most recent game, The Cave, just a month and half ago, and is moving on to his next project.
Gilbert also mentions that he is in the midst of working on an iOS title with Clayton Kauzlaric, who co-created the episodic adventure game DeathSpank with him a few years back. The iOS project is called Scurvy Scallywags in The Voyage to Discover the Ultimate Sea Shanty: A Musical Match-3 Pirate RPG, and Gilbert has stated that he plans to release screenshots of the game soon.
For now, it's sad to see Ron Gilbert depart from Double Fine, but it appears that it was part of his plan all along, so we'll see what the future brings his way in terms of his other planned projects. If you haven't yet played his recent game, The Cave, you can find our official review here.
Are you surprised that Ron Gilbert is leaving Double Fine so soon?
