Ron Gilbert leaves Double Fine, makes pirate game for iOS 12 Mar, 2013 / 5 comments

Ronzo "Ron" Gilbert announced yesterday on his blog that he's leaving Double Fine as The Cave is now completed. He also shared the image on the left of the complete map from the game.

His next project will be a game for iOS that he's developing with DeathSpank co-creator Clayton Kauzlaric called Scurvy Scallywags in The Voyage to Discover the Ultimate Sea Shanty: A Musical Match-3 Pirate RPG. We're supposed to see some screenshots appearing over the next few days.

    I thought Ron will be working on the kickstarter game with DF? I like Tim and all, but my hope was in Ron... Seriously, it seems like he wastes his talent ever since Monkey 2.

    love em and leave em eh Ron?

    It seems this is his MO, hit up a publisher to add his name to the roster, make his project, don't stick around for anything else. I guess as long as he's making games it's fine, but he doesn't really collaborate with Tim or anyone anymore, just kind of glides in, makes a game, departs. I'd like to see Tim and Dave involved in MI:3a, which will probably never happen, but if it did it would be cool to seem him collaborate with them again.

    I hope things are still good between DF, TS, and Ron.

    They seem to be ;)

    Aw man. I was hoping you all were trying to be sensational with that title. That is sad and I hope things are still good between DF, TS, and Ron.
