The Baconing Screenshots & Character Details Revealed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Hothead Games has released some new character details and screenshots from its upcoming DeathSpank adventure title, The Baconing. In the game players must help DeathSpank confront the AntiSpank, his evil twin. The Baconing features new environments, characters, weapons, and armor.

In The Baconing, the endearingly egotistical DeathSpank faces an assortment of terrifying new enemies. Fortunately for the intrepid hero, he finds help in the Forest of Tomorrow, from an unlikely group of adventuring scientists: The Nuclear Family.

The Nuclear family is a group of rather socially dysfunctional mad geniuses that push the boundaries of science within their laboratory-esque arboretum. Motherly Betty Nuclear stays home and has perfected the science of cooking and cleaning while her husband, Dick Nuclear, spends his time at the "Pleasuretorium" creating robots to help cure the ills of society through full body sensual massage. Meanwhile, their brilliant son Elroy keeps busy with his attempts to clone a two-headed dog to call his own, and his sister Chastity entertains herself by constructing a boyfriend out of Ďspare partsí dug up from a graveyard.

In order to gain access to the Fire of Bacon, DeathSpank must reunite this frenetic family. Of course, itís never as simple as that: each family member has a tendency to explode when agitated, and that tendency grows when in the vicinity of their fellow Nuclears. But if he ever wishes to get one step closer to facing off against the villainous AntiSpank, whose very presence threatens everything he stands for, DeathSpank must find a way.
The Baconing will be released on Mac, Windows PCs, and other platforms this summer. Learn more at the links below.
