Deathspank has been on my radar ever since Ron Gilbert, of Monkey Island fame and Creative Director for Deathspank, demoed the game at PAX last year. In this recent trailer, we finally get a taste of the story and a bit more of its oblivious hero, Deathspank. The game promises “Several Unicorns” and “Forbidden Bacon” to go along with its “Diablo meets Monkey Island” gameplay. You can expect an incredibly humorous action-adventure when Hothead Games releases it for the XBLA, PSN, and PC this summer.
If you’d like to know more about Deathspank, the trailer ends with a toll-free number 1-866-631-1574 so that you can give him a call to ask him about his heroic services. This is legit and pretty damn funny if you give it a try. I learned several synonyms for downtrodden during my call, it was incredibly helpful to say the least.
