DeathSpank Marching Its Way To PSN
The other title picked up by EA last week for publishing duties. The mind behind this one is someone most video game fans know, Ron Gilbert, the man behind The Secret of Monkey Island. DeathSpank is an action RPG, and as you can tell from the screens and the trailer it looks gorgeous.
The game casts players in the role DeathSpank, the Hero to the Downtrodden, a Vanquisher of Evil and Defender of Justice as he fulfills his life-long destiny and searches for a mysterious and magical item only known as “The Artifact”. Along the way he’ll rescue a few Orphans, defeat a local tyrant and tumble headlong into the even deeper mystery surrounding the legendary Thongs of Virtue in an epic adventure game that includes collecting loot, crazy puzzle solving, witty dialogue, collecting loot, over-the-top animations, fun, accessible action combat, and of course, collecting loot.
No date set for this one yet, not even a time frame. I would expect that we will be hearing more from Hothead Games and EA at E3 time.
