This unveiling is actually part of a panel featuring the development team, which includes Kim Swift. (Who was in integral part of the development of Portal and the two Left 4 Dead titles, by the way.) They will apparently be discussing the process of “bringing an incredibly fascinating and quirky game to life.” I’m okay with that. The panel takes place on Saturday at 7 p.m. in the Pegasus Room. Square Enix is also bringing Dead Island, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Heroes of Ruin and Wakfu to the convention.

    Here’s who you’ll meet in ‘The Baconing’

    The latest chapter in the DeathSpank saga (is it a saga now? What’s the technical number of games we’d have to have for a saga?) seems to be especially tasty. At least, that’s what you’d expect with a name like The Baconing. In this trailer, you’ll meet the full cast of main characters. Take a look…some of them are kind of creepy.
