Monkey Island's Ron Gilbert Interviewed
8:36 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Ron Gilbert, known for his work on game classics such as Maniac Mansion and Secret of Monkey Island, recently sat down for an interview with Gamespot. Gilbert discussed gaming's past and present, his own experiences, and whether or not he'll ever reveal the real secret of Monkey Island.

Gary Kasavin: And speaking of Monkey Island, did you ever plan on revealing what exactly the secret is?

Ron Gilbert: I had definitely planned on doing that in the third game, yes. There's no question about that, but, you know, and then when Jonathan and Larry made Monkey Island III, which is a great game...I think they did a fabulous job on that. They didn't know what the secret was. I told nobody. So, you know, they weren't really able to kind of reveal that, but I would love to make another Monkey Island game. If I could make another one...I have this whole story mapped out in my head for how I want to tie it all together with the other two games, kind of bring it all back to the original thing, and that would just be a dream of mine.

GK: So, you want to hold on to the secret just in case?

RG: Yes. You know, I should probably write it down and give it to my lawyer to reveal on my death. I keep saying that, but then I think, "God, do I really want that?" Because you know, some crazed fan is going to figure, "Well, you know, I know how to get the secret. I know exactly."
