Who is DeathSpank? Well that's a good question, and one I've not quite figured out yet but if you're wondering where the next part in the Penny Arcade Adventures series is then perhaps you should check this out.
DeathSpank appears to be some kind of action RPG from the 3rd person perspective. With creative lead Ron Gilbert at the helm it's hard to imagine exactly what we'll end up with, except that it will most likely be strange, different and awesome (probably.)
The only problem is it all looks very...familiar and I feel like I've seen the type of combat/gameplay in Beyond Good And Evil (which is one of the best games I've played this year.) So I'm kind of torn to whether this will be as good or better or otherwise.
I certainly enjoyed the penny arcade adventures, so whatever happens it had better be worth the delay else I'll...go and sulk? Take a look at this trailer anyway:
And this weapons trailer made me chuckle:
It's been in development for a while now, so I'm guessing it won't be long til they step up the marketing engine and we'll hear more soon!
