The team over at Hothead Games has been working on another game featuring our favorite Spanker of Death, this one dubbed The Baconing. New screenshots and character information have been released for the upcoming title, including an introduction to the Nuclear family. Continuing the hilarious tradition of quirky gameplay found in previous DeathSpank games, the characters revealed so far are decided oddballs.
The Nuclear family is as much a name as it is a character descriptor considering that they have glowing green eyes and actually ooze radiation. The family — parents Betty Nuclear and Dick Nuclear, son Elroy and daughter Chastity — are all mad geniuses with questionable morals, whose hobbies range from cloning two-headed dogs to building Frankenstein-style men and constructing sensual massage robots.
DeathSpank must enlist their help on his latest quest which will no doubt be epic, and the new images give a few hints about what we can expect to see in The Baconing when it’s released later this summer on PC, Mac, and other platforms.
