  Ron Gilbert is hurt by the criticism received against the visual style of Return to Monkey Island

Overflowing joy has caused the return of the legendary Ron Gilbert franchise. Return to Monkey Island is a reality that will hit our screens sometime in 2022 and we are rubbing our hands to prove it What’s new from Guybrush Threepwood. However, its creator is disappointed.

And it is that in the last entry of his personal blog, Gilbert acknowledges feeling “saddened” by the comments received about the art of the work. Not all followers of the saga have expressed their approval of the visual aspect presented by the title. “It’s ironic that the people who don’t want me to make the game I want to make are some of the die-hard fans of Monkey IslandGilbert expresses.

“I wanted the art in Return to Monkey Island to be provocative, impactful and not what everyone expected. Rex is an amazing creative force and we have an amazing team of artists, animators, sound designers, programmers and testers all pouring their souls in this game and it’s beautiful to watch, play and listen to.”

Gilbert defends in this way the work done by Rex Crowle, art director and ensures that “Return to Monkey Island may not be the art style you wanted or expected, but it’s the art style i wanted“. When the idea of ​​bringing back the series began to take shape, the possibility of using pixel art as an artistic base was considered, “but it did not feel right. We didn’t want to make a retro game.”
