If you happened to hear a squeal this morning, it was likely emitted from a fan of classic Lucasarts adventure games. Only a few short hours ago, news broke that Lucasarts vets Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert would be working together again under Schafer’s own Double Fine Productions.
The duo first worked together on Gilbert’s Monkey Island for Lucasarts (the called Lucasfilm Games). They each went on to make a good name for themselves within point-and-click adventure genre (Schafer outside of it too). In a freshly posted interview with Kotaku, Gilbert wouldn’t comment on whether or not the first fruits of his new relationship with Schafer and Double Fine would be an adventure game but did say "fans of those old adventure games will like it."
The sequel to the Gilbert-created DeathSpank is now out on Playstation Network and the Xbox Live Marketplace. For a taste of what’s to come, I highly suggest you check it out.
