has word from the Penny Arcade Expo that Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness Episode 3
will have to return its vaporware award
, as a deal is in place with Zeboyd Games to produce the third installment, which will apparently "take the series in a new direction, or maybe a really old direction, with a retro 16-bit RPG look and style of play." They say this is expected sometime next year. "We originally had the idea of an NES-style RPG last year, but we couldn't find the right people to do it," said Robert Khoo of Penny Arcade. "After we saw Zeboyd's Breath of Death VII and Cthulhu Saves the World, we knew we didn't have to look around anymore. Zeboyd was a perfect match." Thanks nin.
