Hi, folks! I'm Deirdra, and I worked on DeathSpank with Ron Gilbert a while back, as an intern at Telltale even more years ago, and I've been a LucasArts adventure game fan for goodness knows how long. Anyway, I wanted to signal boost about my latest project, which might interest you. It's called Dominique Pamplemousse in "It's All Over Once the Fat Lady Sings!"
and it's a musical (with singing!) black & white detective adventure game featuring stop motion puppets. I have an Indiegogo campaign to fund its development, which you can check out here: http://www.indiegogo.com/pamplemousse
I also have a playable Flash demo of the first scene: http://deirdrakiai.com/pamplemoussedemo/
Enjoy! And if you want to support its development, please contribute and share!
