Images of Penny Arcade

Gabe and Tycho with the console market, what? Yup, it's getting done, the two emblematic characters from one of the web's finest comic will have their own videogame called Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness (I'm having a headache just writing it). Promising yes, but the interface at the bottom takes way too much space I think. Let's see it in action before judging.

Is this for XBLA or will it be a full retail game?

I'm pretty sure it's going to be a downloadable game, not full priced.

It's an XBLA game not full priced. I'm willing to give it a shot, art direction looks nice.

"So trash is pretty cool?"
I love penny arcade, so i'm totally getting this. As long as the jokes are at level with the comic i'll be happy as can be.

I really like how it's kept the style of the comic so well

Looks like a nice game but I was never into penny arcade I'll give it a miss

Looks really nice. Love the setting.

I think this will be pretty good. Writing & art will no doubt impress.

Will definitely try it out.

"I hope this game bombs. Would be sweet irony for Penny Arcade."

I think this comment is pretty ignorant considering all the good they have done for children’s hospitals through the yearly Childs Play campaign. If anything they deserve this game to be hugely successful.

About the game


What's up?
  • asdfg
    asdfg Doom or any fast paced fps must play pretty terrible with a gamepad. (1 minute ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @KORNdog: Thanks for that. him liking the game despite: "It even has its own version of Ubisoft’s weary “radio tower” mapping system that has become something of an industry joke." is VERY good news (13 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @MrWhite: Same here. After the many positive comments on NeoGAF and other forums I was expecting more. The gunplay and the sounds of it don't do it at all for me. Maybe just too fast paced for me. (23 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, wasn't a big fan of the new Doom myself. Bit of a let down. (25 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: [url] also a good read. given this is someone who didn't review far cry 4 well (a game horizon is oft compared to) (27 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane Another good review to *READ*: [url] (30 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: yeah, i always worry when there is a late embargo. but even then they can turn out well critically (doom) even though i'd probably give that game a 6-7 myself. (31 minutes ago)
