Fans of the hilarious webcomic may have heard of this game, but to most it is most likely filed in the "What?" category. I for one am really looking forward to it. Anywho, the real news here is the pricing of "Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness: Episode One" at a whopping 1600MSP, aka $19.99 USD. That effectively makes it the most expensive arcade game to date, or at least it will when the game is released "sometime this spring."
Check out the game's official site for plenty of info, but this is the official description and the debut trailer:
"On the Rain Slick Precipice of Darkness is an episodic RPG-Adventure game set in a deranged comic-book-meets-pulp-horror universe. Armed with unconventional weaponry, you join forces with the Startling Developments Detective Agency to make war on bizarre enemies and solve the mysteries hidden deep in the sinister heart of New Arcadia.
From the hilarious and twisted minds of Penny Arcade creators Mike ‘Gabe’ Krahulik and Jerry ‘Tycho’ Holkins, legendary game designer Ron Gilbert and veteran producers at Hothead Games comes a 100% authentic and hilarious Penny Arcade experience.
All episodes of On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness will be available for download on Xbox LIVE Arcade, Windows, Mac and Linux."
