At last week’s Penny Arcade Expo (PAX), the makers of the popular video game-centric webcomic
announced plans to release a game of their own. It’s to be entitled
“Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness,”
and it will be produced for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.
The creators of Penny Arcade, Mike “Gabe” Krahulik and Jerry “Tycho” Holkins, have teamed up with Hothead Games to produce the title, which is described as being released “in episodic format.” That will allow Penny Arcade and Hothead to release new installments every few months by digital download.
The first episode of the game’s release date and system requirements are yet to be revealed.
Hothead bills itself as “a platform-agnostic company” that was founded in Vancouver, British Columbia earlier this year. The company comprises industry veterans who have developed games for THQ, Electronic Arts, Microsoft and others. The Penny Arcade game is their first announced title.
