Deathspank, the latest creation from the mind of Monkey Island's Ron Gilbert, will be released next week as a downloadable game on the Playstation Network and Xbox Live by Electronic Arts. You may now browse the game's official website at DeathSpank.com.
Electronic Arts and developer Hothead Games sollicited a note from Deathspank himself to tell the world about the new website. Due to it's hilarity, I decided to post it verbatim.
You clearly are a loyal supporter of justice and justice-related entertainment (I can see that from here), so prepare to be rewarded!
I, DeathSpank, am bringing the fight against evil to PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade this month, and to celebrate I am opening the doors to my minty-fresh website:
Go now to www.deathspank.com to join the struggle against evil and boredom! Go early, go often! Go too often! Neglect your family and friends, madly hitting F5 hoping for additional website updates! Use mobile devices to stalk the website like a proud Justice hunter on an evil savannah.
Thrill at the mighty wallpapers, avatars and screenshots and sign up for DeathSpam email for even more updates! Be amazed by my incredible Facebook page!
Be astounded by DeathSpank (@deathspank) tweets, promotions and up to the picosecond updates. The DeathSpank cast is tweeting too! Eubrick the Retired (@eubrick_retired) is tweeting pure crank while Lord Von Prong (@LordVonProng) tweets pure evil!
I mean just look at all those exclamation points and updates in that last paragraph! How can it not be exciting? It can’t not be definitely not be not exciting, that’s how.
Visit the website! Tell your friends! Tell your relatives! Tell complete strangers on the street that at last Justice is at hand! The Justice of DeathSpank! THIS is the moment when the internet finally becomes popular, and you’re going to be a part of it.
You can also call my ‘Hero Hotline’ at 1.866.631.1574 (toll free in North America) to have justice shoved right in your ear!)
Yours in Justice,
Hothead also released new footage of the game's co-op gameplay.
Gilbert's humor meshed with a hybrid of adventure and Diablo-esque gameplay sounds like a perfect match. Anyone else excited to see how this turns out?
