Hothead Games, sans Ron Gilbert, have released the first visual details of their next game, The Baconing. Which is of course a DeathSpank game. But oddly one that absolutely does not mention DeathSpank in the title. Here DeathSpank tries on all his underwear at once, which as we all know summons an evil version of yourself, in his case the AntiSpank. And they say that gaming is immature. There’s pics and a trailer below.
“Balance can only be restored to the world by entering the Fires of Bacon and destroying five of the thongs. Now, DeathSpank travels the lands to find a sizzling solution to vanquish the AntiSpank and bring about peace once again to Spanktopia.”
But how it relates to DeathSpank, the original game, and why it’s not being marketed as a sequel, is unclear at the moment. So you can join in the confusion with the completely unhelpful teaser trailer below, and a few screenshots (clickening for biggening) that actually show a glimpse of the game.
