This action-RPG with traces of adventure, will be retailing sometime this year with trademark Gilbert laughs. It's "neck-in-neck" for a Nobel.
"I wanted to let all the Premium Gold Level Grumpy Gamer subscribers know that I left Hothead," Gilbert wrote on his , reports .
"When I started working there two years ago, my goal was to make DeathSpank the most awesome game ever made and have it win a Nobel Prize and the early word out of Stockholm is that DeathSpank is neck-in-neck with some string theory dweeb (eleven dimensions my ass)."
"As DeathSpank ends the creative and production phases and start down that long and winding road of certification and testing of the XBox and PS3 and (REDACTED) versions, it's looking quite amazing and is damn funny."
"So, to quote my childhood hero George W. Bush: Mission Accomplished." He'll be sticking close by to EA and Hothead for PR purposes as the retail date draws closer. For now he's vowed to "blog more and try and remember my twitter password."
DeathSpank releases for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC this year. Check out the trailer.
