New Penny Arcade Adventures shots

The full title is On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness. Wouldn't fit in the headline

The first instalment of the downloadable, episodic game series Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slack Precipice of Darkness will be priced at $19.95 for Windows, Mac and Linux platforms, and will be released this spring.

The game, which will also be available on Xbox Live Arcade, offers five to ten hours of gameplay, blending classic adventure mechanics and role-playing combat.

Ron Gilbert, creator of The Secret of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion, has served as a consultant on the game.

Fans will be pleased to see the screenshots are faithful to the online web comic, no doubt due in part to the involvement of Penny Arcade illustrator Mike Krahulik and writer Jerry Holkins.
