We really haven’t done enough coverage of Penny Arcade’s On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness Episode 3 here on Twinfinite. I believe that is mostly because nobody wants to type out the name. The game however is crafted lovingly by the people at Zeboyd Games whose comedic RPGs like Breath of Death VII changed the way we view dirt cheap comedic role playing games on the Xbox Indie Marketplace. The pairing of the two really does feel like a perfect combination.
In an announcement on their website, it was revealed that the game will be releasing July 10th on Steam and XBLIG for $5 (400 MS Points). Plans to have two free post updates for the title were also revealed. Information on the Android and iOS versions of the title are unknown as the code is just being handled for the port now.
I was curious to know if this extra content was to be used as a tie in for the planned 4th episode scheduled for 2013, so I asked Robert Boyd of Zeboyd for a follow up. The way the update is planned is that it will be “mostly just fun side-stuff that we thought would be cool for players after they’ve played the game.” Zeboyd has been pretty good with post release updates for their titles so its good to see them continue this with their biggest release yet.
