Penny Arcade Adventures Episode 3 This Summer

The Penny Arcade's On The Rain-slick Precipice of Darkness Website has word that the off-again/on again third installment in the adventure series based on the webcomic will be debuted for the public at this week's PAX East gathering and will be released this summer. Word is: "The game continues the epic saga of Tycho Brahe and Jonathan Gabriel in New Arcadia circa 1922 and will release for PC, Macintosh, the Xbox Live Indie Games channel, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android in the coming months." Here's word on the game, which is in the works at Cthulhu Saves the World developer Zeboyd Games:

The new game continues the chronicles of Tycho Brahe, scholar of Apocalyptic Studies turned detective, and his volatile, probably entirely human partner Jonathan Gabriel. As the spectre of unspeakable evil threatens New Arcadia and the world as we know it the Startling Developments Detective Agency must unravel the mystery and find a way to triumph! With a cunning evil Doctor, a series of Unexplainable Thefts, a Mysterious Book of Power and Enigmatic Supernatural Forces, the ever escalating perils on the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness challenge our heroes to their very core!

Not that I didn't enjoy Cthulhu saves the world, I enjoyed it a lot actually, but only for some hours, then it got boring as hell. Too repetitive, combat was getting boring too, it's just always the same, and the dungeons very uninspired after some time.

So I think I'll pass on this one I guess

I can see how they're a similar in style and how combat can get repetitive. But I still like em, so I'll be grabbing this one. I'm hoping, as time goes on, they're branch out a bit.

Hmm, I was looking forward to this, I enjoyed the first two games, but when I saw the screenshots of this new episode... *sigh* another RPG Construction Kit Game (don't know how it's called, too lazy to Google).

Zeboyd's games aren't made in RPGMaker... they're using XNA.

While I enjoyed the graphics in Episode 1 & 2, I'm excited at the new, albeit retro, direction the graphics are taking in Episode 3! If it can only tap in that FF4 and FF6 energy, I'll be very pleased.

According to the about page, it looks as though an Episode 4 is planned too. http://www.rainslickgame.com/about/rspd3
