DeathSpank. DeathSpank! With a name like that, how can you not be amused? Electronic Arts and Hothead Games will be releasing their downloadable action-RPG this July.
As DeathSpank, the “Dispenser of Justice,” “Vanquisher of Evil” and “Hero to the Downtrodden,” you get to embark on an epic journey of hilarity. In search of a mysterious artifact known only as “The Artifact,” you’re journeying to fulfill a life-long destiny. DeathSpank will feature local co-op gameplay, so friends can team up to play both DeathSpank and his trusty sidekick, Sparkles the Wizard.
I’m looking forward to the game, especially since it’s been developed under the direction of The Secret of Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert. Besides addictive action-RPG elements, I expect DeathSpank to hold similar humor. It’ll be available on the PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade on July 13th and July 14th respectively.
