DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue is a RPG released as the second installment to the DeathSpank series of games. It was first released in 2010, just two months after the release of the first title. In the game, players control the character of DeathSpank as he goes on a mission to find the Thongs of Virtue. There are six thongs to find – Cuisine, Courage, Generosity, Compassion, Justice, and Peace. The storyline is a direct continuation of the first game. Players guide the main character through war-torn areas in order to find the Thongs. Like other RPG games, this game also features an array of weapons and armors to use against enemies. Some of the available weapons include bazookas, guns, and rifles.
DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue offers three game modes, ranging from easy to hard. Players are given three main quests that when completed, will finish the storyline. Aside from these main quests, players can also choose to complete side quests in order to get rewards, such as in-game money and useful items.
The game has a multiplayer mode that allows users to play in co-op mode. The second player has the option to choose between two sidekicks (Steve the Ninja or Sparkles the Wizard).
