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.

Noooo!!! it better be as good as the first two...I just got around to finishing them and getting all the achievements. They were pretty funny and fantastic games I must say and I've heard good thngs about zeboyd games. I hope for the best with the new direction this game is goin in.
I am excite. Breath of Death and Cthulhu Saves the World are both great games by any definition.
Sweet, 16 bit Penny arcade humor can only be good :)
I would love to see an 8-bit battle between a T-Rex and Fruit "Lover" Prime.
I honestly can't wait to play this. I actually stopped playing the first version because of the how the visuals were handled. Love Penny Arcade art, but it honestly felt like less of a game.
Hahahha this game looks hilarious.
"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."
Very nice the game is being made so available would like to see more games released like that.
This might be the one I play, 16bit is awesome.
