Okay, so any post with April 1 on the header needs to be read carefully on the account of the foolishness, though this one is worth bringing to light. Ron Gilbert, creator of The Secret of Monkey Island and other classic LucasArts adventure games has announced that he's working on a new Monkey Island game.

The announcement was made via his Grumpy Game blog, where he writes, "For 18 years the Grumpy Gamer blog has been April Fools' day free because it's a stupid tradition. So to mix things up a little I'm taking this opportunity to announce I've decided to make another Monkey Island."

A rather cryptic post that could be taken either way, but when you factor in that Ron has staunchly been against everything April Fools for many years, it definitely sounds like he could be working on a new Monkey Island.

If that is the case, this would be a funny way to announce it without really announcing it. A new Monkey Island adventure would be pretty amazing to see, as the series' most recent resurgence came with Telltale's Tales of Monkey Island from 2009 - which featured a number of ex-LucasArts veterans on the team.

LucasArts and all of its properties are now a part of Disney, and with Ron Gilbert expressing interest to work on a new entry in the past, it's not out of the realm of possibility. His most recent effort was the impressive point-and-click love letter Thimbleweed Park from 2017.
