Ron Gilber, crator of Monkey Island and The Cave is leaving Double Fine where he’s been working with his long time friend and Monakey Island partner in crime Tim Schafer. The move is entirely amicable and seems to be motivated only by Gilbert’s desire to try something new. “It’s time for me to move on from Double Fine and plot my next move,” he said.
“I want to thank all the amazing people at Double Fine for all their hard work on The Cave,” he said. “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.”
“It wasn’t ‘Hey, come to Double Fine.’ It was ‘Come to Double Fine and make The Cave,'” according to Gilbert. “I was telling him [Tim Schafer] about The Cave and he really liked it, so he said ‘come to Double Fine and make it. It was really all about making that game.”
