Ron Gilbert has left Double Fine, the studio he joined in 2010.

Gilbert, the legendary creator of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion, collaborated with Tim Shafer’s Double FIne Productions on the recent XBLA adventure game The Cave.

However, following the title’s release, Gilbert and Double Fine have parted company.

"Now that The Cave is done and unleashed on an unsuspecting world (ok, we did do a bunch of PR, so it wasn't exactly unsuspecting), it's time for me to move on from Double Fine and plot my next move,” wrote Gilbert on his blog.

"So many games left to be designed.

"I want to thank all the amazing people at Double Fine for all their hard work on The Cave. It was a true pleasure to work with every one of them over the past two years. So much fun. I will miss them all. And of course to Tim for creating the opportunity to come there and make The Cave."

Gilbert is now working with DeathSpank co-creator Clayton Kauzlaric on the wonderfully named iOS title, Scurvy Scallywags in The Voyage to Discover the Ultimate Sea Shanty: A Musical Match-3 Pirate RPG.

Wow... you'd think he'd stick with Shafer and make some more magic. Instead, make one game then leave? Uhhhh. That's one way to do it. Can't really count on a 401k if you're constantly moving from one job to the next.

Millionaires don't need 401k plans. That's for us poor folk.
