Interview: Klei’s Anderson Talks Upside Of EA’s “Indies”

Earlier this week, EA launched an indie bundle. Not-so-coincidentally, the Internet proceeded to explode, and I'm now typing this while holding a tin can with a piece of string attached next to my PC. I even said some things about it, though admittedly, mostly to kick off a discussion about an only partially related topic. However, off the back of that, I ended up getting…

Gaze At The Baconing’s New Screenshots

The Baconing is the new game that isn't a Deathspank game, but does have Deathspank in it, coming "this summer" from Hothead. We've not seen much on it since it's announcement in June, but here's a peek at The Forest of Tomorrow, where it apparently tastes like science, and the Clone-A-torium, where from the looks of things a whole lot of cloning is going on.…

DeathSpank With A Side Of: The Baconing

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…

DeathSpank vs Anti-Spank

The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy is not the only game Hothead is currently working on, it transpires. Those man-fellas and lady-fellas are also turning their attentions to a third DeathSpank game. DeathSpank is, you might recall, the creation of former Lucas Arts heroman Ron Gilbert; he's now reunited with former colleague Tim Schafer at Doublefine, with Hothead confirming to Kotaku that the 'Spank will…

DeathSpank: Thongs Of Virtue Out Nov 30th

Ouch! I've just been shot by the news gunman. I hate that guy. So, it turns out DeathSpank pt. 2, Thongs of Virtue, will be released on November 30th and will include both console DLC The Snowy Mountain Dungeon as well as an exclusive co-op partner named Tankko- “half-man, half-spider and all awesome.” Caw, it feels like it was only yesterday that DeathSpank came out.…

I’ve Been Playing DeathSpank

We spent quite some time expecting DeathSpank to come to PC, posting trailers, talking about it, and so on. Then it didn't. Was it coming out on PC, or not? We didn't know. We asked around. Did anyone know? We asked the developers. Hothead weren't saying. We looked under a rock. There was nothing there. Finally, we stood around in Castle Shotgun, shrugging and looking…

Cheeky: DeathSpank Out Now On Steam

Ron Gilbert's comedy Diablo-alike, Deathspank, is out now on Steam for £9.99! I mean, technically it was also out yesterday on Steam for £9.99, but it's RPS's firm belief that news gets better with age. You know, like fine wine, or the Bond films of Roger Moore. I played DeathSpank when it first came out on Xbox Live and really enjoyed myself. The jokes are…

DeathSpank Coming To PC, Along With Shank

It's always disappointing when those who have made their careers making PC games announce their next project is to be console only. Dirty turncoats like Tim Schafer and Ron Gilbert, who'd be nothing - NOTHING - without the PC have betrayed us in a very real way, for which there can be no forgiveness. Only hate. Unless they then release their game on PC. Schafer's…

Deathspank: Deathspank

Deathspank. It's Ron Gilbert's many-years-in-the-kitchen-of-development humorous Diablo-alike, and it has quite the art style. I'll admit I'd forgotten about it entirely until a video (below) turned up today, and the reason I'd forgotten is that it's not clear if there will be a PC version. Will there be a PC version? I don't know. I'll try and find out, right now. In the meantime, assuming…

Spank Rocks: First DeathSpank Screens

1UP only have a bloody exclusive, so we're going to have to link to them. Curse them and their exclusives and their fashionable haircuts. They're doing a week of DeathSpank coverage starting with a preview, including the aforementioned screens. Ron Gilbert does an Adventure Game/Action-RPG cross-breed based on an office running joke which just wouldn't stop. I'm excited by this. More of this kind of…

Ron Gilbert’s New Game Announced

The hero of a generation of gamers, Mr Ron "Monkey Island" Gilbert, has announced his new game, and the publisher who'll be distributing it. Ready? DeathSpank Episode 1: Orphans of Justice. Oh yes. It's an "RPG Adventure", featuring a character from the short-lived Grumpy Gamer cartoons. Gilbert explains, "I called up Tim Schafer and said "Loan me a desk, I have a game to design!"…
