Ron Gilbert is finally returning to video games next year with DeathSpank and to help celebrate, Gilbert is keynoting this year's Penny Arcade Expo. I'll be live blogging Gilbert's keynote, which starts right here at 1:00pm PST.
The Monkey Island co-creator left LucasArts in 1992 to form Humongous Entertainment (where he created Putt-Putt and Freddi Fish) before going off the radar. Gilbert returned from the shadows to work with Hothead Games on the Penny Arcade Adventures episodic series, eventually deciding to make his own episodic adventure, DeathSpank. DeathSpank, however, is no longer episodic.
