Additionally, pre-orders of the DeathSpank and Shank bundle will receive a 15 percent discount (Shank will also be released on October 26). A Mac version of DeathSpank is in the works, though the release date is still under wraps. We've contacted Hothead to see if the DeathSpank sequel, Thongs of Virtue, will also make the jump to PC and Mac.
"Bringing the game to PC and Mac was a direct response to the repeated requests by our fans and we are thrilled that DeathSpank has become so popular and such a phenomenon, ensuring that we can fulfill those requests," said Vlad Ceraldi, Director of Game Development at Hothead Games. "The humor, story and core gameplay elements in DeathSpank were all inspired by some of our favorite PC games."
Players who download the game will be placed in the boots of the mighty DeathSpank, "Dispenser of Justice," "Vanquisher of Evil" and "Hero to the Downtrodden" and will embark on his lifelong journey to search for and find a mysterious artifact known only as "The Artifact." Along his journey, DeathSpank will rescue orphans, defeat a local tyrant, help an aging adventurer and dive headfirst into an even deeper mystery. The game's accessibility makes for a fun, addictive experience where players will find themselves solving crazy puzzles, collecting massive amounts of loot and engaging in tons of hilarious dialogue. DeathSpank also features local co-operative gameplay, allowing friends to jump in and out of this adventure on the same computer as DeathSpank's trusty, magical sidekick, Sparkles the Wizard.
