Now is the time to finish our Deathspank trilogy games review blitz! If you missed the earlier episodes, do not hesitate to check my review of Deathspank 1: Orphans of Justice here, and Deathspank 2: Thongs of Virtue here.
This third game in the Deathspank franchise was made after Ron Gilbert had left HotHead Games, and it was apparent in this game that the creative head had changed.
If you are curious, an earlier review of The Baconing was done by pedrolabate a few years ago. My review is a second take on this game and wraps our look back on the trilogy.
Deathspank: Thongs of Virtue is the second episode of the Deathspank trilogy, and was originally released only a few months after the first DeathSpank game, which I loved. This game is still made by Ron Gilbert and HotHead Games. I purchased this game the day it came out, and since the first one made a huge impression on me, my hopes were high. Let’s find out if this sequel is as fun as the first game!
DeathSpank is a trilogy that was released between 2010 and 2011, a series of games made by industry legend Ron Gilbert (who you might recall for, say, the Monkey Island games) and HotHead Games. I purchased DeathSpank (the first game) in a heartbeat after trying the demo several years ago
Since this is a series that deserves a second look, I thought it might be good to do a review for each of the games in the trilogy, in order to make you see why it deserves your time! We’ll start with Orphans of Justice, but reviews for DeathSpank 2 (Thongs of Virtue) and DeathSpank 3 (The Baconing) will also go live in the following weeks!
Edit: Offer expired, games are back to their original prices.
