    The search for The Artefact!

    DeathSpank is a PlayStation Network title that follows the adventures of a misguided hero named DeathSpank, a character that first appeared on the pages of creator Ron Gilbert's Grumpy Gamer website as a series of animated comic books.

    Conceived by Gilbert and his long-time creative collaborator, Clayton Kauzlaric, DeathSpank tells the story of the naïve, but well meaning hero on his quest to find a mysterious object known as The Artefact.

    Traversing enchanted and haunted forests, your goal is to defeat hordes of enemies, collect loot, power-up and laugh yourself silly at the hilarious dialogue crafted by Gilbert, one of the minds behind the equally brilliant Tales of Monkey Island, which is available to download from PlayStation Store too.

    Weird and wonderful characters

    DeathSpank is packed to the brim with a range of zany characters for you to meet including the hilarious hero, demon witches, wizards and evil lords. DeathSpank, the main character in the game that you take control of, is a force of nature, a man of action that shoots before he even knows there's a question to ask. Sparkles is a wizard master and always ready to help out DeathSpank with his healing power and cloning abilities.

    Other characters you'll meet on your journey are: Ms Heybenstance, a demon witch who is a master of black magic, demonic incantations and sorcery; Pedro, DeathSpank's guide through this strange world; and Lord Von Prong, evil ruler of the land who wants DeathSpank dead.

    Alongside this cast of crazy characters are a host of other side characters that will guide or impede you on your quest for victory, including a mysterious red-haired woman called Sandy, an old adventurer by the name of Eubrick and Lord Von Prong's right-hand man, Sergeant Orque.

    Prepare to spank death where it hurts!

    Spank death with a friend

    Don't want to play the game on your own? Then find a friend or another player on PlayStation Network and let them take control of Sparkles the wizard, DeathSpank's sidekick in the game.

    Sparkles can wield fire, clone himself and heal wounds but be careful when and where you use these powers because they need time to regenerate each time they're called upon.

    Packed with hours of rib-tickling fun, colourful characters, hilarious dialogue and featuring a PlayStation Network hero unlike any other, DeathSpank is an adventure worth going on with a friend or on your own. Download it now from PlayStation Store!
