Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert bids audieu to Hothead Games

Wednesday, 7th April 2010 06:48 GMT By Nathan Grayson


With “Monkey Island meets Diablo” action-RPG DeathSpank officially out the door, Ron Gilbert’s making his way toward the exit as well.

“I wanted to let all the Premium Gold Level Grumpy Gamer subscribers know that I left Hothead. As DeathSpank ends the creative and production phases and start down that long and winding road of certification and testing of the XBox and PS3 and [REDACTED] versions, it’s looking quite amazing and is damn funny.  So, to quote my childhood hero George W. Bush: Mission Accomplished,” Gilbert wrote on his blog.

“I will be working closely with EA and Hothead on the PR for DeathSpank as the release date of [REDACTED] draws closer,” he added, presumably referring to an unannounced PC version of DeathSpank.

More through the [REDACTED].

    I’m getting nervous after not hearing anything about the PC version for a while.
    There still is one, right?
    There must be one, mustn’t there?

    I’m looking forward to having a go of this. Do we have any idea at all when it might be showing up?

    Looking forward to this, videos have been quite good. Hopefully Ron Gilbert doesn’t take another very long leave of absence from the game industry, very few with comedic talents in this market to begin with.

    There is a PC version thats what the [redacted] joke is.
