As we have already reported, Ron Gilbert and his team work on a game in the Monkey Island series. Return to Monkey Island is supposed to implement a new art style that will shock players, as he thinks. Ron also wants to say goodbye to the retro look.
After this announcement, many Monkey Island fans have published their disappointment on social media, which is sad to Ron Gilbert:
“I wanted art in Return to Monkey Island are provocative and shocking and is not what everyone expected. Rex is an amazing creative force and we have a team of incredible artists, animators, sound designers, programmers and testers who all put their souls into this game, and it is beautiful to look at, play and listen. “
“It is ironic that the people who don’t want me to play the game I want to make are among the die-hard Monkey Island fans. And that’s what makes me sad about all the comments. “
“Return to Monkey Island is an incredible roller coaster. Get in and have fun or leave the amusement park because it is not exactly the roller coaster you wanted. ”
“I hope you will jump up with the rest of us.”
