Ron Gilbert Leaves Double Fine

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

Ron Gilbert, the man behind The Secret of Monkey Island and most recently The Cave, has left Double Fine to pursue his career in video games elsewhere.

Gilbert has said; “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.”

We wish Ron all the best in his future endevours.
