The lights are on
Acclaimed game designer Ron Gilbert has announced that he is leaving Double Fine. Gilbert's most recent game, The Cave, was released a few months ago, but that isn't the last we'll be hearing from Gilbert.
Gilbert broke the news on his blog. "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 [Schafer] for creating the opportunity to come there and make The Cave."
He also teased a project he's been working on with his Deathspank co-creator Clayton Kauzlaric. "It's called Scurvy Scallywags in The Voyage to Discover the Ultimate Sea Shanty: A Musical Match-3 Pirate RPG," Gilbert wrote. "I'll post some screen shots in the next few days."
We can't wait to see them.

Aw man, that's a shame. Good to see that he is still in the industry. Looking forward to his next project, loving the name, haha.
At first I read this as Ron Gilbert announced a new Double Fine game called Departure. Best of luck to him in his future endeavors.
I'll miss this guy and I look forward to his next game.
The Cave has been my favorite game so far, can't wait to see what's next sir!
Hell of a title.
Is there a demo of the Cave?
Saw this on Twitter last night and wondered what was going on. Good luck to him.
