Tim Schafer Hires Ron Gilbert, Gets Funnier

Video gaming's best known funny men are back together again under one roof, having a "hell of a lot of fun," making jokes and, perhaps, even developing a game or two.

Ron Gilbert, known best for his work on the first two Monkey Island games, Maniac Mansion and this summer's DeathSpank, officially started work at Tim Schafer's Double Fine Productions last week, though Gilbert says he's still not getting paid.

Interviewing the two is like falling helplessly into a comedy skit as the straight man; every question becomes a launch pad for a routine, every answer needs to be verified with a "This isn't a joke, right?"

The story is too old to be commented.
