DeathSpank is an allegedly upcoming episodic Adventure Game by Game Designer Ron Gilbert. It has been in development since 2004; it was announced on January 9th 2008 that Hothead Games would publish the game.[1] The game has been described as "Monkey Island meets Diablo" and will allegedly be released in episodic format.[2] The first episode would supposedly be called "Orphans of Justice". No release date has been given by either Gilbert or Hothead Games, but a piece of artwork released indicates the game is "Coming soonish."[3] As of September 16th, 2008, the website says "Soonerish". Three teaser trailers of DeathSpank have been shown at Penny Arcade Expo 2008, still lacking however any gameplay scene.
episodic.

Don't forget Full throttle . Lucasarts is more focused on star wars and console only games now..

LucasArts announced its plans to return to Monkey Island, the publisher's once popular P&C adventure series, with two new releases. The first is Tales of Monkey Island, a game that's going to be divided into 5 whole episodes, developed (we've seen this coming) by Telltale Games. The episodes will evidently be released "in just a few short weeks" for the PC and WiiWare.

The only bad thing about this is that Telltale recently said that they want to change the point and click style of their games to something more "controller friendly" so they can easily make console versions.

So, if they screw up Sam and Max, Monkey Island will most likely suffer the same fate.

I'm hoping for the best though. As a fan of point and click adventure games, "consolizing" a classic series doesn't really get any worse than replacing the "point and click" part with whatever a gamepad is capable of.

Well it's PC and Wii, which indicates to me it will be point and click... maybe a 360 version is planned though, but couldn't be released as quickly.

I find Telltale games to be boring and not at all as funny or enjoyable as the Lucasarts classics though, so I doubt I care either way.

I love that they're remastering the original game though... I will buy that in a second.
