Ron Gilbert Leaves Double Fine

Ron Gilbert, best known for his work on The Secret of Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, and most recently, The Cave, is moving on from Double Fine Productions. Announced through his personal blog, the famed adventure-game designer was vague on his reasons and motivations for leaving, but at the very least, this won’t be the last time we see him in the spotlight (at least we hope not). Gilbert joined the team at Double Fine back in 2010 to work on a new adventure game, a genre he and Tim Schafer have a history of, and with that title finally released, it would seem he wishes to explore new opportunities.

Whatever his next venture may be, we only wish him the best as he has created some of the most memorable PC games in the past twenty-five years.
