The game casts players in the role DeathSpank, the Hero to the Downtrodden, a Vanquisher of Evil and Defender of Justice as he fulfills his life-long destiny and searches for a mysterious and magical item only known as "The Artifact". Along the way he'll rescue a few Orphans, defeat a local tyrant and tumble headlong into the even deeper mystery surrounding the legendary Thongs of Virtue in an epic adventure game that includes collecting loot, crazy puzzle solving, witty dialogue, collecting loot, over-the-top animations, fun, accessible action combat, and of course, collecting loot.
•One of the funniest RPGs ever created: Ron Gilbert (Monkey Island) brings his hilarious brand of witty humor and ridiculous dialog to a whole new genre in one of the most epic stories ever seen featuring thongs!
•Two-player local "sidekick" co-op: Recruit a friend to fight by your side as your heroic sidekick and work your way through hellacious dungeons and a mysterious land.
•Massive world is MASSIVE: The world of DeathSpank is massive, filled with tons of unique and hilarious characters, dangerous foes, diverse landscapes, and chickens ... lots of chickens.
•Collect hilarious loot: Collect tons of wacky weapons, costumes, and unique items (have you ever used a chicken launcher or hunted for unicorn poop?) during your journey and use them to customize your character's abilities.
