Week of DeathSpank! (Day 5: Video Soup) 04 Sep, 2009, 19:17 / 41 comments

1Up. Now.

Day 1: Ronterview & Screenshots.
Day 2: Ronterview (expanded from Day 1).
Day 3: LucasArts reunion video: join Messrs. Gilbert, Grossman, Tiller, Levine, Ahern, Falstein and Hsieh for a very interesting half-hour chat.
Day 4: Inside Hothead Games.
Day 5: Trailer snippets, behind-the-scenes footage and an interview. As my friend Irina would say, "Awesome-sauce." (Seriously, it's pretty cool.) The official DeathSpank website has been given a complete overhaul as well.

There's also another new DeathSpank screenshot at Ron's Grumpy Gamer site.

    Although he didn't mark this news post as "Kroms Update" (as is the usual courtesy at Mojo) day 3 and 5 updates were entered by Kroms (well, I assume).

    I cetainly would not tolerate any so-called friends who said "awesome sauce".

    Guys! New trailer! Endless Awesomeness!

    Sorry for replying to my own post, but I just realised that, in the intro, the pirate swinging on the rope is actually a monkey. Heh.

    Does anyone else think that Deathspank screenshot at the docks looks a lot like Good & Evil?

    Clayton Kauzlaric has another screenshot here: http://ton-of-clay.blogspot.com/

    Hmm, sounds like Hothead's got some interesting projects down the pipeline.
  • AlfredJ on 03 Sep, 2009, 22:32…
    They said nothing about new Penny Arcade-episodes though. I hope they'll mention something about that at PAX. Those were pretty great, and I'm not even a PA-fan. I love the guys at Hothead, I hope it all works out for them.
  • Kroms on 03 Sep, 2009, 23:34…
    I was just thinking the same thing - that I hope it works out for them and AME. I don't want bad decisions by publisher (like Gamecock deciding Insecticide should've been on anything besides the Wii) to sink these guys, because they have the talent - and their hearts are in the right place.

    The title scroll's music sounds like the Dark Forces' MIDI.
  • ATMachine on 03 Sep, 2009, 20:26…
    It does, doesn't it? I thought the same thing.
  • Ascovel on 02 Sep, 2009, 22:22…
    Grossman fondly remembers pre-production stuff for The Forge!!!
  • jp-30 on 03 Sep, 2009, 04:31…
    Finally, the C-3PO SCUMM game I've mentioned several times in the past is publically confirmed.
  • Giygas on 03 Sep, 2009, 12:24…
    Rouge Leaders?
  • jp-30 on 02 Sep, 2009, 22:02…
    I would have put Day 3 into its own news post, it's pretty pheominal.
  • MarioColbert on 03 Sep, 2009, 00:26…
    I concur. I tried writing things about the video, but I can't. It's inexplicable.
  • clone2727 on 02 Sep, 2009, 19:47…
    The video links to mixnmojo for me O_o
  • Kroms on 02 Sep, 2009, 19:57…
    Fix'd.
  • clone2727 on 02 Sep, 2009, 20:18…
    Danke
  • elTee on 02 Sep, 2009, 19:21…
    Glad this went up early. Really enjoying the video! (whilst it buffers yet again)
  • Kroms on 01 Sep, 2009, 22:53…
    I wonder why they have some concept art up, but are hiding the rest. Weird.
  • Kroms on 01 Sep, 2009, 22:54…
    Uh, to clarify: They're only partially showing concept art.
  • jp-30 on 01 Sep, 2009, 23:18…
  • Ascovel on 01 Sep, 2009, 09:53…
    The graphics could have looked a bit more unique.
  • Gabez on 01 Sep, 2009, 12:40…
    Looks quite WoW to me, but that's not a bad thing at all. It looks pretty amazing, I think; better than I thought it would.

    I might even say it looks... Ronderful.
  • Capn_Nacho on 01 Sep, 2009, 14:11…
    I love the mix of 2d and 3d, looks perfect. The colors are rich and really quite lovely. I agree with gabez, it looks much better than I hoped. Ronderful, indeed.
  • Kroms on 01 Sep, 2009, 12:07…
    Some are a bit more interesting than others.
  • Ascovel on 01 Sep, 2009, 17:04…
    I liked the bleeding skeletons the best

    Looks good! I hope they keep the purple costume as a choice of clothing.
  • elTee on 01 Sep, 2009, 06:46…
    Woohoo, looks good! I'm really looking forward to seeing how this game goes down at PAX.
  • Giygas on 01 Sep, 2009, 00:42…
    The title of this should have been "DeathSpank Screenshots!" or something like that.
  • jp-30 on 01 Sep, 2009, 00:45…
    Boooooorrriiing.
  • Giygas on 01 Sep, 2009, 00:52…
    I skipped over it by accident because it didn't go "Hey guys, DeathSpank looks like this!".
  • jp-30 on 01 Sep, 2009, 00:57…
    OK then, let it now be known that if you click the link in my post you will find screenshots from DeathSpank.
  • Giygas on 01 Sep, 2009, 01:03…
    Thanks for informing me. :p
  • jp-30 on 01 Sep, 2009, 01:11…
    Bah, you were right all along. Title updated.
  • Giygas on 01 Sep, 2009, 00:43…
    Also, how do skeletons bleed? Just curious.
  • jp-30 on 01 Sep, 2009, 09:44…
    Profusely.
  • AlfredJ on 31 Aug, 2009, 23:12…
    Christ, I like the look of this. If they manage to make it fun to play, we've got a winner here.

    I think it looks like something that would work extremely well on something like Steam and XBLA. Impulse purchases and all that. Not sure if it will be downloadable though.
  • Icebox on 31 Aug, 2009, 23:07…
    The REAL Monkey Island 5.
  • jp-30 on 31 Aug, 2009, 23:16…
    Curly clouds! Deserted Islands! Pirate ships at the docks of a seaside town!
