Ron Gilbert is finally returning to the forefront of comedic game development with his brand new project, DeathSpank. Described via amusingly-written press release in a peculiar nutshell as "Monkey Island meets Diablo", DeathSpank will be the first game Gilbert will develop as a new Creative Director at Hothead Games, who in turn will be handling the publishing of the title.It's like speaking of the man summons his unspeakable spectre. You can never tell when the brilliant old coot is creating real-honest-to-God games and when he's just violentlly pulling the gaming community's collective leg. I wait with totally unabated breath.
