After the heartbreaking cancellation of the third episode of Penny Arcade Adventures: On The Rain-Slick Precipice Of Darkness, Zeboyd Games came to the rescue. The third installation in this Lovecraftian RPG saga will take the form of an 8-bit classic RPG. Luckily, it is written by Jerry “Tycho” Holkins of Penny Arcade, and will continue the same story we progressed through in the first two games.
On The Rain-Slick Precipice Of Darkness: Episode 3 was well received at E3, which is nice, because we tried desperately to bring about that very result. We’re committed to releasing it “When It’s Done” as they say, and it is done, so waiting until July seems dumb. How does the 25th sound, for Steam and XBLIG? Zeboyd is throwing in Cthulhu Saves The World for Steam purchases in the first week, which I thought was sweet of them. The ports are… porting, EVEN NOW, and the PC version will have SteamPlay when Mac goes live. The trailer goes up Monday; I am trying not to be excited, to temper my expectations, but I am not doing a very good job .
RSPD 3 will be launching on the 25th on Steam and Xbox Live, but the iOS and Android (Lawl) ports will have to wait a bit. Are you excited? Perhaps now is a good time to play through episodes one and two again.
