Deathspank - Ron Gilbert Leaves Hothead

by Dhruin, 2010-04-07 08:51:54

It's hard to know what this means, because we've seen so little of what was once meant to be an episodic game released with a quick turnaround.  Here we are, two years later.  Ron Gilbert has announced he has left Hothead, although he basically says the game is finished:

I wanted to let all the Premium Gold Level Grumpy Gamer subscribers know that I left Hothead.  When I started working there two years ago, my goal was to make DeathSpank the most awesome game ever made and have it win a Nobel Prize and the early word out of Stockholm is that DeathSpank is neck-in-neck with some string theory dweeb (eleven dimensions my ass).

As DeathSpank ends the creative and production phases and start down that long and winding road of certification and testing of the XBox and PS3 and [REDACTED] versions, it's looking quite amazing and is damn funny.  So, to quote my childhood hero George W. Bush: Mission Accomplished.

I will be working closely with EA and Hothead on the PR for DeathSpank as the release date of [REDACTED] draws closer.

I have also vowed to blog more and try and remember my twitter password.
