Hothead Games reveals The Baconing trailer
If you’re familiar with the name DeathSpank, the hero of the Thongs of Virtue, then you’ll be well aware of what sort of game The Baconing is. Although to be honest, the title gives it away anyhow.
It’s rather silly. And if developer Hothead Games had its tongue planted any more firmly in the side of its mouth with this comedy-action-RPG series, we’d be looking at a lacerated cheek.
Fresh from his last adventure to collect the six virtuous thongs, DeathSpank tries them all on at the same time, not knowing of the myth which states…
“If one were to be in possession of all six Thongs of Virtue, he must never, ever wear them all at the same time, otherwise they risk summoning an incredible self-evil.”
Hence, aside from being in considerable discomfort from wearing six thongs we’d imagine – one would be bad enough – the AntiSpank is summoned, DeathSpank’s evil twin.
To rid the world of the AntiSpank, our hero must destroy five of the thongs in the Fires of Bacon (it probably being a wise idea to take them off first).
This may sound like utter childish drivel if you’ve never encountered DeathSpank before, but actually the series plays host to some very sharp humour (along with some quite base jokes, admittedly).
The game mechanics are well thought through, too, and the DeathSpank philosophy is essentially Diablo meets Monkey Island, with extra helpings of daft jokes.
A trailer has just been unleashed on YouTube, but it merely reveals the title of the game (literally). It’s worth a look for a quick giggle, though.
The Baconing is currently being fried up ready for serving this summer, so we guess that means in the next two months. It’ll be out on PC and Mac, along with as yet other unnamed platforms, consoles presumably.
