1Up to preview DeathSpank and more 29 Aug, 2009, 22:31 / 11 comments

This week is going to be sweet, thanks to 1Up!
On Monday we're kicking off our next 1UP Cover Story -- on DeathSpank, the latest game from Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion creator Ron Gilbert. For the past 15 years or so, he's been working on children's games, consulting, producing, etc., and this is his return to heading up an enthusiast-focused game. It's one of my most anticipated games at the moment, and I can't wait to show it off.

This cover also serves a dual purpose, since it gives us a nice excuse to post a related feature that I started working on back in 2007, but got backburner'd and never made its way online. That being, a LucasArts Reunion video where I interviewed seven former LucasArts adventure game devs as a group. We filmed the whole thing, and are finally putting it online mid-next week.
I see you shiver with antici...<:MORENEWS:>

    I'm shivering, but it might be because of my crippling pneumonia rather than anticipation.

    I might be wrong, though.

    Nah, it's just quite cold today I think. It's August and I'm wearing a jumper in the middle of the day. Weird.

    Nope, it's definitely pneumonia.

    OK, finally. Now people might actually understand that I am NOT being a creepy pervert when I say "Thong of Justice".

    What about the rest of the time?

    They ask me to show them my thong of justice.
