It's being described as Monkey Island meets Diablo and has been created by Ron Gilbert, famous for his past work with Lucasarts Games. So the above trailer is a bit exciting, don't you think?

Ron is now the Creative Director at Hothead Games, and their next release DeathSpank promises 'a massive seamless world with no load screens', 'mind numbing - yet completely fair - adventure game puzzles' and 'a real story...not a crappy video game story'. All rather big claims which will hopefully be lived up to.
