Ron Gilbert; the known creator of the point and click adventure game and Tim Schafer; the known creator of awesome, are finally back in the same bed together working at Double Fine Studios. In fact Gilbert has been working at Double fine since late September and now we finally get our first images of what they have in mind. There’s still not an inkling of information regarding exactly what the game might be, but knowing both Gilbert and Schafer, it will no doubt be the funniest thing since Monkey Island.

Apparently one of the reasons that Gilbert began working at Double Fine was because Gilbert spends a lot of time working there in Tim’s office, spinning ideas back and forwarth. In an article from Kotaku Tim finally popped the question while they were talking about a few game ideas. “Hey why don't you come here and build this thing.” he said. I for one

For those of you that don’t know Double Fine is a studio that was created by Tim Schafer and has produced such games as Psychonauts, Brutal Legend, and DeathSpank. All sign’s point towards their next game, whatever it is, being just as good if only because of the talent behind them. Check out the art and an article about it below.
