Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness Episode One

Gabe and Tycho of the web comic Penny Arcade are at their debut on the video game scene in this adventure RPG.

Set in 1922, in a pulp horror storyline, players create their protagonist who gets swept up in a world of mystery and adventure when a large robot destroys the main character's house during a leaf raking session. Determined to get to the bottom of what happened (and finding a new place to live in the process), the player runs into the Startling Developments Detective agency, run by Gabe and Tycho. Along the way, the team will encounter a series of characters from the web comic, fighting zombies, homeless people, mimes and Fruit Fuckers in an attempt to solve this bizarre series of events.

Gameplay is set up as a classic-style RPG, with turn-based combat and item management abilities during combat. Players will also be able to summon other characters for combat help, and level up new abilities as the story progresses.

Story elements are conveyed in a comic strip style. During conversation, players engage in a multiple selection story tree in an attempt to gain support or information or simply just harass and insult characters in typical Penny Arcade fashion.

The Xbox Live version includes various achievement rewards based off gameplay requirements.
