The titular "Hero to the downtrodden, a vanquisher of evil, and a dispenser of justice" DeathSpank will solve Monkey Island-style puzzles with trademark Gilbert humour and a dose of lateral thinking--aided by a hint system--and bloody Diablo-style combat.
Both ranged and melee baddy-bashing will feature, with DeathSpank decked out in weapons and armour scavenged from the world and fallen foes. A leveling system will naturally boost power and abilities, as well as allowing him to use level-locked items.
Developed by Hothead Games, DeathSpank will no longer be an episodic series as originally announced. Neither platforms nor a release date are currently known.
This actually looks pretty rad.
