Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness, will be a comic adventure game, the first chapter of the planned episodic series which will feature characters from Penny Arcade, including the well-known Gabe and Tycho.
It is exceedingly rare that the journalistic side of gaming crosses over into development. Most of the writer types don't know the first thing about creating a game, and many developers are so busy tweaking physics collisions and character renders that they don't have time to rail against the very things they create. All that's about to change, though, as the world's most popular webcomic is going interactive with Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness: Episode 1.
Microsoft gave the press a good look at the game with the exceedingly long title at this year's GDC, and anyone with even a passing fancy in video games needs to be on the lookout for this title.
