Ron Gilbert, the brains behind Monkey Island, confirmed another installment in the classic franchise earlier this month. The sixth part, Return to Monkey Island, features the return of Gilbert along with Dave Grossman, who worked on Secret of Monkey Island and LeChuck’s Revenge.
In conversation with Adventuregamers.com, Gilbert and Grossman shared a little more about Return to Monkey Island. Despite Gilbert’s aversion to April Fools’ jokes, here’s what he had to say about his announcement that he might be working on a new Monkey Island game on April 1st, before officially announcing it a few days later.
“That was maybe around the time I wrote the ‘If I Made Another Monkey Island’ thing [in 2013]and I was just like, you know — it was a weird fantasy, I was like, oh, I’d buy back the rights and I’d announce it on April 1st, and it would be awesome,” Gilbert said.
