Veteran game designer and The Cave creator Ron Gilbert announced his departure from Double Fine Productions explaining he wants to "plot his next move" in the gaming industry. In a post on his personal blog, Gilbert thanks his former colleagues and studio founder Tim Schafer, saying it was a "true pleasure to work with every one of them," and simply that it was time to move on.
Schafer and Gilbert, who also co-wrote The Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2, joined forces in 2010 when Gilbert teamed up with Schafer at Double Fine. After two years of toil, Gilbert released the literally full-of-junk The Cave earlier this year.
Gilbert's plan is to continue working with DeathSpank co-creator Clayton Kauzlaric on an iOS game, which he revealed has the catchy moniker of Scurvy Scallywags in The Voyage to Discover the Ultimate Sea Shanty: A Musical Match-3 Pirate RPG. Gilbert has pointed out that he has "so many games left to be designed" which leads us to believe he has a lot more to offer to the gaming world down the pipeline.
