Ron Gilbert leaves Double Fine, teases new iOS game



Ron Gilbert has parted company with Double Fine and confirmed the title of his next game – Scurvy Scallywags In The Voyage To Discover The Ultimate Sea Shanty: A Musical Match-3 Pirate RPG. We’re not sure if he’s joking or not.

Expect to see more on that exotically-named iOS title on his blog soon, on which he also thanked his former colleagues at Double Fine for their work on his last project at the studio, The Cave.

“Now that The Cave is done and unleashed on an unsuspecting world (okay, we did do a bunch of PR, so it wasn’t exactly unsuspecting), it’s time for me to move on from Double Fine and plot my next move,” he wrote. “So many games left to be designed. 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 for creating the opportunity to come there and make The Cave.”

He went on to add that he has been working on the aforementioned Scurvy Scallywags in The Voyage to Discover the Ultimate Sea Shanty: A Musical Match-3 Pirate RPG with Clayton Kauzlaric, an iOS game which will be revealed on his blog soon.
