Now for a somewhat better look at someone we saw on the jigsaw puzzle: the Hillbilly.

Agreed. I really want to see where they're going with this. The concept art has me excited.

The character VicOfAges posted is called the Time Traveler, and according to Ron's blog, all the characters posted so far are playable.

I have to wonder just what sort of game they're making. The official announcement can't come soon enough.

The flood of characters continues! Today's reveal is the Adventurer:

Just how many playable characters are in this game? We are already at 7!

I know this will be amazing... it's Ron after all.

Still hankering for a slice of game-specific forum. Announce already.

I hope we'll have those as soon as this madness ends! :P

crowd: "ooooh!" "aaaah!"

The "Yeah.... He's all about peace and enlightenment." descriptor about the monk, on Ron's blog, suggests he might actually be monk-like rather than your usual "I'll go on a killing rampage with as much enthusiasm as the next guy, but while wearing a robe" style game-monk. I can live with either one in the context of an interesting game though. Looking forward to learning more!

Is it just me or do these pictures also form a jigsaw puzzle?

and I'd wager, based on this tweet, that we'll get an announcement on the 24th:

@grumpygamer

"If you're planning May 24th as your "off the grid day", you might want to rethink that. Just saying. Human contact is overrated."

I'm excited. With this many playable characters, I have to wonder what sort of game this will be. A bizarre puzzle/RTS hybrid?

Edit: I super-duper hope that this will be on PC, but I'm not holding my breath considering the previous post-Psychonauts releases either took a long time to come to PC (due to the publisher not wanting to fund the PC version as far as I'm aware) or may never come to PC at all. Unless you count handhelds I have no current consoles, and I'd hate to be left out of another great DF release again.

Something about the lighting and the campfire just make me really excited at the thought that he is doing some kind of LOST-slash-Gilligan's Island sort of thing.

Just put all of his "the" characters into the song! xD

Just to be clear, it's been fairly regularly stated that these guys aren't from DFA, they're from Ron's project which he's been working on since he joined Double Fine (which predates DFA by some months).

nice exiting times :)

Oh, please don't go! We'll eat you up, we love you so!

I'm still very sad that Sendak is gone.

Here's the Knight, who's apparently a bit of a coward:

You spelled exciting wrong. I made a Maurice Sendak reference.

I wasn't trying to make you feel bad. Was just making a stupid joke. I just assumed it was a typo, and I have those too.

"And finally... Who would not want to play as these adorable siblings?"

The Twins:

Edit: And that was apparently the final character (or in this case, characters) to be revealed. We've now seen the entire playable cast for Ron Gilbert's mystery game.
