Adventure Games Spanked To Death

This is, of course, completely offtopic but I find it exciting enough to mention.

Ron "Grumpy Gamer" Gilbert of Monkey Island fame is going to publish a new adventure game. Last year he came into contact with Hothead through the Penny Arcade project, On The Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness, and it turns out they want to produce his episodic adventure game, DeathSpank, a game with a title and a character so odd and yet strangely compelling that it seems every single other publisher in the gaming industry wanted to have nothing to do with it. Despite the fact that we are talking about Ron Freaking Gilbert here.

So this is, as I mentioned, far offtopic for Rampancy. Am I the only one excited about this? Anybody else want to hear more about DeathSpank as it moves towards release?



there is going to be no halo news for awhile anyway

I think there is a lot to be excited about here. Not much has been going on in the adventure genre these days apart from Sam and Max.
