The Baconing is a RPG-ish and hack'n'slash-y adventure game with hilariously stupid and funny dialogues, revolving around the justice-loving hero DeathSpank.
In typical RPG-manner you acquire main- and side-quests as you fight your way through the varying and - thanks to the graphical art style of the game -really good looking areas of Spanktopia.
During the course of the game you constantly find new equipment in the form of weapons, armor, potions and gadgets to assist you in fighting hordes of mad turtles, dinosaurs, aliens, roboters and other enemies. The levelling system (up to level 20) also awards you with more health, damage or other perks upon reaching a new level.
The game can be played both alone and in local co-op (one player with keyboard and mouse, the other with a controller) and has a playtime of around 8-9 for a complete playthrough, probably a little less when playing in co-op.
Either way, I highly recommend The Baconing as it is great fun and well worth its money!
