Penny Arcade Game Coming to a
PLAYSTATION 3 Near You
Hothead Games today proudly
announced that its well received Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick
Precipice of Darkness, Episode One is currently in development for the
PLAYSTATION 3 and will debut on PLAYSTATION Network late fall 2008.
Penny Arcade Adventures: On the
Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness is an RPG-Adventure game series set in the
comic-book-meets-pulp-horror-meets-H.P. Lovecraft deranged 1920s universe of New
Arcadia, delivered to gamers via accessible episodic releases. Players join Gabe
and Tycho, the crime-solving team of the Startling Developments Detective
Agency, to combat savage enemies and solve mysteries hidden deep in the sinister
heart of New Arcadia. The game is the result of close collaboration between
Hothead Games and Penny Arcade, featuring distinct artwork and characters
designed exclusively by Mike "Gabe" Krahulik, story and dialogue by Jerry "Tycho"
Holkins, and all brought to life by the Hothead team.
"We keep getting emails asking why
our Penny Arcade game is not on PSN," said Hothead’s CEO, Vlad Ceraldi. "We have
always said we wanted to have our games on as many platforms as possible to give
choice to gamers. All good things take time and we are very excited to be
debuting our first PS3 title and look forward to bringing more games to this
platform in the future."
The PLAYSTATION 3 version of Episode
One will be priced in line with the game on other platforms.
