Watch Ron Gilbert's talk at Game Forum Germany 26 Feb, 2011 / 4 comments

Here's a big thank you to reader/veteran Laserschwert for this: Ron Gilbert's recent talk for Game Forum Germany, entitled "The Making of Maniac Mansion", is available to be viewed online. Just click on "2011" and then on the link that does not not have "Ron Gilbert" in the title. You should be able to find similarly-educational videos elsewhere: one by noneother than LucasArts VP Mary Bihr herself, and, in the 2009 section, one by Noah Falstein (Fate of Atlantis) and one by Telltale CTO Kevin Bruner.

I must say, though, that I deeply admire the dubbing in those videos. It doesn't look like they're actually speaking German - the native language of 90% of the world's adventure gamers - at all!

    Did anybody else notice that at about 35 minutes into it he says "The sequel to Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle."?

    Awesome. Some never-before-seen concept art there, too.

    Nordmedia needs to fire the camera guy. And the sound guy.
