OXM UK: DeathSpank Preview

With all the noise currently surrounding Tim Schafer's Brütal Legend, it's easy to forget that there was another man, Ron Gilbert, who was also responsible for The Secret of Monkey Island's rapier wit and imaginative story.

Turns out Gilbert hasn't just disappeared to a cave in the mountains to live on a diet of tree bark and insects.

Instead, he's been beavering away on a concept he originally floated in 2004 - DeathSpank. Based on a character from Gilbert's Grumpy Gamer comics, DeathSpank is a heroic knight, who wanders a seamless loading-screen-free world clobbering enemies and searching for an artifact called, imaginatively, The Artifact.

The story is too old to be commented.
