The lights are on
Much doubt has surrounded the next installment in Penny Arcade’s On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness series, but today brings good news. A phoenix down has been used on the fallen third entry, in the form of a new developer bringing the game in a new 16-bit RPG direction.
Developer Hothead Games was originally developing Penny Arcade’s On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3, but left the project to work on DeathSpank. Since then, developer Zeboyd Games has picked up the mantle. Zeboyd created old school RPG tributes Cthulhu Saves the World and Breath of Death VII.
Penny Arcade says the game will be playable at PAX East, and are planning to put out the game on PC, Mac, Xbox Live Indie Games, iOS, Android, and anything else they can get their mitts on.
