We all know how toxic the internet is, and people seem to see comments as an opportunity to say things they would never do in real life. One person who will no longer think that way is industry veteran and bright mind Ron Gilbert. .
Even two months ago, Gilbert objected to fans trying to stop him from making Return to Monkey Island the game he wanted to make, instead claiming he should stick to what he said a long time ago. Unfortunately, things got worse, and yesterday Gilbert wrote that he would stop sharing about returning to Monkey Island and closed the comments section on his blog:
“I’m shutting down comments. People are just being mean and I had to delete personal attack comments. It’s an amazing game and everyone on the team is very proud of it. Play it or don’t play it, but don’t spoil it for everyone else It. I won’t post about the game anymore. The joy of sharing is mine.
Guybrush Threepwood’s voice, Dominic Armato, sums it all up nicely in the tweet below. We hope it makes at least some fans think twice before posting something toxic.
