Ron Gilbert, creator of Maniac Mansion and the first two Monkey Island games, would like his IPs back. The renowned game designer – and most recently one of the minds behind upcoming retro adventure Thimbleweed Parktook to Twitter in order to address Disney and potentially liberate the IPs from their dark, musky dungeons of neglect. In exchange for money, of course. Provided negotiations begin, this could potentially lead to the creation of a new Monkey Island game, an idea that Gilbert has toyed with in the past – in 2013, he posted on his blog, detailing what a new Monkey Island might look like if he had a chance to make one.

Needless to say, we’d love to see that happen. The question is whether or not Disney is willing to lend an ear to Gilbert.
