Hothead Studios is teaming up with the all-incumbent soothsayers at Penny Arcade to make a series of games based on their cartoons. They'll be released every few months to be played as episodes. The first title we'll see is called "Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness" and will be released for the Linux, Windows and OSX platforms.
From the press release:
The creators of online ultracomic Penny Arcade have joined forces with Hothead Games, an independent and experienced video game developer, to collaboratively create video games based on the Penny Arcade comic.
"We're really excited to be working with Hothead Games on our first electronic adventure," said writer Jerry Holkins, his clawed feet resting atop a huge slab of granite. "From the moment we laid eyes on them, it was clear they had the technical and creative chops to execute our grim vision. Now that we have pooled our strengths, our dark work may truly begin." Holkins then paused to eat a rat whole. Thanks to pix for bringing us these joyous tidings. Update 03-09 : Bad link fixed.
