The Baconing details and screens sizzle, pop onto internet


Hothead has shed some new light on The Baconing. It would seem that DeathSpank's new adventure takes place directly after Thongs of Virtue, and deals with the aftermath of Deathspank foolishly donning all six of them at the same time. As a result, he summons an evil version of himself: the AntiSpank (shouldn't it be LifeSpank?).

Check out some new screens in the gallery below.

Sink Your Teeth Into the First Slices of Hothead's Game, The Baconing

Independent games developer Hothead Games today released the first set of images from their anticipated summer title, and the best reason to stay indoors all summer, The Baconing. Enter the Fires of Bacon, Spanktopia, the Throne Room, and meet the AntiSpank.

"...if one were to be in possession of all six Thongs of Virtue, he must never, ever wear them all at the same time, otherwise they risk summoning an incredible self-evil." – an ancient Thongolith myth

Unaware of the myth of The Baconing, the hero DeathSpank, on a boring day in Spanktopia, decided to try on all of the undergarments at once. Much to his surprise, the result had nothing to do with chafing or wedgies, but rather the summoning of an evil incarnation of himself, the AntiSpank.

Balance can only be restored to the world by entering the Fires of Bacon and destroying five of the thongs. Now, DeathSpank travels the lands to find the sizzling solution to vanquish the AntiSpank and bring about peace once again to Spanktopia.

With new environments, characters, weapons, and incredible suits of armor, The Baconing is a comical adventure like no other, filled with everything players have come to expect from Hothead Games, and more.

The Baconing will be released on PC, Mac, and other platforms this summer.
