Hey, nice one Ron. If it were that easy to sell your game idea these days...

Hell he deserves it. That's all I gotta say.

I wish it were true, but really, how many Ron Gilbert inspired games do you see coming out lately?

How many adventure games do you see coming out?

How many comedy games?

He _should_ be highly influential, but I'm not sure he actually is.

Nice to see an up to date picture (http://www.gamespy.com/articles/march02/top30/images/gilbert.jpg) of the man himself, too. Didn't he have a game he was working on called Good & Evil? That sounded amazing, but wasn't it canned?

Yeah
It looked really good, I was really looking forward to it.
I cant really remember why it got canned, it was quite far in production.

I thought he was deving a game for like 5 year olds and it had a pirat and a big pink thing in it.

Yeah, he's responsible for Bing Bong Island too. That game was hard.

Yeah Good and Evil looked great, I still have a games mag with an interview with Gilbert and stuff about G&E.
I believe it never got finished because Cavedog went under.
