Default Gamasutra - Deathspank, Distribution and Portals

March 25th, 2009, 15:24
An interesting article at Gamasutra from GDC for those that follow the industry or take an interest in indie games. The piece reports on a talk from Hothead (Penny Arcade Adventures) that discusses their experience selling the game online. They provide some data on the breakdown of Live vs PSN vs computer sales and then Windows vs Mac vs Linux. Ron Gilbert's Deathspank gets a mention - apparently the humorous adventure/RPG/Monkey Island/Diablo mashup is in "full production".
More information.

DeathSpank sounds like the Bard's Tale remake?

No, I don't think it would be like this.

Just visit the Grumpy Gamer blog, I think you might read more about it there (haven't been there for a year or more).
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)

Has anyone actually seen a game play vid of this game? All I can find is the intro, and two vids covering some of the loot (which, if accurate, looks hilarious).
