Bio: Ron Gilbert is a game designer best known for his work at Lucasfilm Games (he still refuses to call it LucasArts) creating point-and-click adventure games.  He was the co-creator of Maniac Mansion and the creator of Monkey Island as well as the SCUMM adventure game scripting language. He was the co-founder of Humongous Entertainment which made adventure games for kids including Putt-Putt, Freddi Fish and Pajama Sam.  He designed and programed several casual games over the years (back when it was cool), created and designed the RPG DeathSpank and most recently the adventure game The Cave. Ron is currently working on a mobile iOS/Android game called Scurvy Scallywags in The Voyage to Discover the Ultimate Sea Shanty: A Musical Match-3 Pirate RPG. Yes, that’s the title.

    I liked that food and drinks were after the talk, much easier to socialize and the talk started right in time.
    Great after party, everyone was so engaged.
    Thank you for a great evening!
