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.
