The Baconing to Leave the Frying Pan August 31
Hothead Games has announced that the mighty warrior Deathspank will return to action in The Baconing, coming August 31, 2011 for all major platforms and Mac. The game will release one day early for PS3 owners on August 30. PlayStation Plus members can get the game 20 percent off. Otherwise it will go at the price of $14.99.
“We wanted to make The Baconing available to as many gamers as possible as we don’t want anybody to miss out on this unique adventure,” Mike Inglehart, Producer on The Baconing said. “In particular, we wanted to make sure gamers on Windows PC and Mac were able to download the title at the same time as console gamers. This rarely happens for digital distributed products, but at Hothead we felt it was important to give everyone simultaneous access to our best game yet.”
Xbox owners will be able to pick it up the next day for 1200 MSP. The game is being published by Valcon Games. A fact proudly said by studio president Glenn Halseth:
“Valcon Games is very excited to be able to play a role in this fantastic stand alone adventure, and by partnering with the amazing Hothead Games we can help bring The Baconing and its infamous hero, DeathSpank, to Xbox Live® Arcade players everywhere.”
PC/Mac users can get it for $14.99 on Steam and the iOS App Store respectfully. Those who pre-order the game on Steam will get 20 percent knocked off of the total price.
