Ron Gilbert announces he wants to break the codes of the RPG

Known for having produced numerous titles during the great years of the point-and-click, the American designer Ron Gilbert (Penny Arcade Adventures, DeathSpank, The Cave) recently indicated on the social network Twitter that he wished to make a RPG without the elements that make it a RPG … Basically, he wants to explode the current codes with an innovative title that does not offer inventory, statistics evolving with levels or even talent trees.
