The lights are on
When Ron Gilbert left Double Fine recently, he also announced his upcoming mobile game, Scurvy Scallywags in The Voyage to Discover the Ultimate Sea Shanty: A Musical Match-3 Pirate RPG. Yesterday, he revealed a few more details about the game.
It's a match-3 RPG, in case the title didn't make that clear, but it plays around with the way pieces drop. The direction you swipe your pieces dictates where new pieces come from, so you can have new pieces falling from up top, coming in from the left and right sides, and coming in from below.
The game is coming to iOS devices in the coming months, and Gilbert says he's pretty sure it won't be a problem to port it to Android shortly after.
You can check out Ron Gilbert's Grumpy Gamer blog for more details on the game.

I don't think my soul can survive another match three game.
I hate puzzle related games. I became a gamer for the sole purpose of relieving stress from school and sports, and puzzle games seem to make me feel like I am back in english class. Using logic and reasoning. RPG is pretty close, but I still love it (:
I find it interesting seeing where developers end up, and what they end up making. Here's hoping the game does well enough to keep food on his table, and electricity to his computer for programming future games.
This game looks fun.
Sound promising, I'm sure I'll give it a try
A big difference from The Cave, but I'm sure it'll be interesting nonetheless.
