Penny Arcade's just
announced the first details of Penny Arcade Adventures: On the
Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3, third in a series many had given
up on after the long silence that followed Episode 2. Which is to say
that when the game's revealed to the public this weekend at PAX East,
Penny Arcade Adventures will kind of succeed where both Half-Life
Episodes and Shenmue have so far failed.
Bound for PC, Mac, Android,
iOS and the Xbox Live Indie Games channel in the coming months,
Precipice 3 continues the saga begun in 2008's initial installments.
With previous developer Hothead Games having moved onto its own IPs,
last year saw the series revived after a deal was hatched on the
comic's own forums for Cthulhu Saves the World dev Zeboyd Gams to continue Penny Arcade's
PAX East attendees will be
able to get a look at Zeboyd's 16-bit-inspired take on the series at
the show this weekend, with a panel discussion between the game and
comic's staff on Friday evening. Non-attendees can keep up with the
game's progress at its newly-launched website.
