A Good Look At Monkey Island Creator's New Game

Ron Gilbert's latest game, Deathspank, isn't new. We've know about it for ages. But all this info and screenshots, well, they're very new.

1UP have a weeklong feature running on the game, which looks set to satisfy a gaping hole in the market by serving as a smart, funny parody on gaming genres and cliches. Well. We don't know about the smart, funny bit just yet, but with Ron Gilbert - the man behind Maniac Mansion and Monkey Island - at the wheel, things are looking promising.

More on the game - including its take on adventure gaming and Diablo - below.
