Publish date:

Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion creator Rob Gilbert has left Double Fine.

Gilbert announced his exit on his blog, stating that his work with Double Fine had concluded with the recent launch of their adventure game collaboration The Cave.

Now that The Cave is done and unleashed on an unsuspecting world, it's time for me to move on from Double Fine and plot my next move. So many games left to be designed,” he 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.”

Gilbert didn't go into details about his future plans, but is currently working on an iOS title with Clayton Kauzlaric – who worked with Ron on the Deathspank series.
