Ron Gilbert Joins Double Fine
We were already in love with Double Fine Studios when it was just Tim Schafer, but today we were given an early Xmas present by finding out that Ron Gilbert has joined the crew over at Double Fine. In case you’ve lived in a hole during the PC era of gaming where it was the only option, you should know why this is a distinctive news item.
You see, one of the best games to ever grace the PC was the SCUMM powered Monkey Island series from LucasArts and at the time Gilbert and Schafer were responsible for it and Maniac Mansion just to name two.
I can only hope that Ron joining Tim officially means that we’ll see more awesome come from the duo eventually…cause with a pedigree like these two have, it won’t be long.
