The lights are on
Update: Ron Gilbert has updated his blog with two new characters over the weekend. Meet (from left to right) The Adventurer and The Scientist. Gilbert didn't offer any information about the two characters, saying only that he is crazy for updating his blog over the weekend. I think he's right. What kind of person sits around on a Sunday afternoon updating a website? That person would have to be crazy.
We got a small tease back in November, and a physical puzzle earlier this month, and now Ron Gilbert is releasing character concept art for a few of the characters of his upcoming project with Double Fine.
From left to right above we have, The Monk, The Hillbilly, and The Time Traveler. Gilbert describes The Monk saying, "Yeah.... He's all about peace and enlightenment," The Hillbilly as, "Oh no! It's The Hillbilly!," and doesn't offer any meaningful description about The Time Traveler.
Outside of these few character concept designs, we really know nothing about Gilbert's game, other than him saying, "This is an idea that has been in my head for a long long long time. It predates Maniac Mansion and Monkey Island. It's a game that needed to be made."
We should find out more at E3.
