Penny Arcade Adventures Episode 2 Done and Priced
Hothead Games has announced that Episode 2 of Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness has officially gone gold for Windows, Mac, and Linux. In addition to that, they have also announced that the game will be priced at $14.95 (or 1200 MS Points on the XBLA). That’s five bucks less than the previous episode, for those playing along at home — guess the Penny Arcade folks took the bizarre Braid controversy to heart. This episode will pick up where the last one left off, with you, Gabe, and Tycho continuing to explore the strange occurrences in a 1920s-era steampunk society. in that regard, you can probably expect to beat up more mimes and fruit-defiling robots with your mighty rake.
“Episode One was a huge investment for us and established a great base from which we built Episode Two. It allows us to focus even more on the fans in developing future games in the series,” said Hothead’s CEO, Vlad Ceraldi. “Our new game has a lot of great enhancements that were made possible by direct fan interaction and we are extremely excited to get our game into their hands and get their feedback.”
No word on a release date yet, but we’ll be sure to let you know once that’s announced as well.
