Sir Arthur's Den has posted three game trailers for Ron Gilbert's upcoming DeathSpank episodic adventure game. In development at Hothead Games, DeathSpank will feature Gilbert's unique style of humor and storytelling.

“Everyone hated it - says Gilbert - But the weird thing is the more publishers that turned it down, the more convinced I became that this was a great idea. Every rejection fueled me with excitement and the knowledge that I was right. Nothing says innovation and creativity like armed security showing up to escort you out of the building while saying ‘Let’s not have any trouble’“. The turning-point for DeathSpank came when the designer met the small Canadian software house Hothead Games, for which Gilbert first acted as a consultant for the adventure On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness then becoming creative director of the entire ship.

Inspired by a comic clip of February 2005, DeathSpank is first of all the result of the creative efforts by Gilbert and his regular partner Clayton Kauzlaric. Designed with an episodic framework as like as the adventure games released in the last months (Bone and 3D Sam & Max above all), the game will rely on the “unique style of Gilbert’s humour and storytelling” and the compulsive pursuit for new objects, weapons and armors peculiar of the Diablo franchise.
