Schaefer and Gilbert Reunite

Ron Gilbert started working last week for Double Fine Productions, reuniting Gilbert with Tim Schafer, with whom he collaborated on the first two Monkey Island games at LucasArts back in the day. Kotaku interviews the pair, who give them the runaround in proper Abbot and Costello fashion, describing Gilbert's position as "the official Ron Gilbert," which is a promotion from vice Ron Gilbert, but a stepping stone to his aspirations to someday be executive vice Ron Gilbert, and perhaps even director of Ron Gilbert. They also discuss how Double Fine has room for another project, since they are preparing to ship Costume Quest, but they play it quite coy about what Gilbert's next project will actually be. "It's an idea that I've been batting around for many, many years," Gilbert tells them. "I've been talking to Tim over the last couple of months about it and it sort of percolated back up. It's very different than DeathSpank, it's a bit of a departure from that. It's going in a very interesting direction. Fans of those old adventure games will like it." That said, he adds: "That's not saying I'm making an adventure game." Thanks Joker961.

Grim Fandango 2? Sigh, a man can dream can't he? Google Manny Calavera and check out some of the images. Ahh, so sweet.

In the Schafer vs Kotick wrestling match Schafer just tapped Gilbert.

*hands Gilbert a spork* Attack Kotick! Defend Schafer's honor!
