Ron Gilbert reveals Scurvy Scallywags

20 Mar

Well known game designer Ron Gilbert, father of Monkey Island, has releases new details about his next project since leaving Double Fine Production earlier this month.

Gilbert has teamed up with Clayton Kauzlaric, co-creator of DeathSpank, to develop a musical match-3 pirate RPG called Scurvy Scallywags in The Voyage to Discover the Ultimate Sea Shanty for iOS (such a freaking long name for an app).

The designer said he has wanted to create a match-3 RPG game for a few years, but publishers indicated little demand for the genre. But now it’s the right time! After the release of The Cave, Ron last work at Double Fine, Glbert said it was time for him to move on and plot his next move.

Scurvy Scallywags in The Voyage to Discover the Ultimate Sea Shanty: A Musical Match-3 Pirate RPG (or SSITVTDTUSS:AMMTPRPG for short) should be ready in a couple of months, but for now take a look at those screenshots.
