Ron Gilbert, the man behind some of the most iconic and influential adventure games of all time, has announced that he will no longer be working with Tim Schafer at Double Fine Productions.
In a post on his blog, Grumpy Gamer, Gilbert explained:
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.
So many games left to be designed.
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.
We here at GameRevolution can't wait to see what sort of exciting new projects Gilbert will come up with in the future. They're bound to be quirky, charming, and a whole lot of fun.
