Turns Out Penny Arcade's Game isn't Dead Afterall

Remember when we told you that the only way you'd be able to enjoy the last two chapters of Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness was by reading through them on the webcomic's site?

Apparently we lied.

Today the duo said that they have struck a deal, my money is on an unholy one, with Zeboyd Games to develop the third episode of On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness as a game. The latest installment, we're told, "will take the series in a new direction, or maybe a really old direction, with a retro 16-bit RPG look and style of play."

"We originally had the idea of an NES-style RPG last year, but we couldn't find the right people to do it," said Robert Khoo of Penny Arcade. "After we saw Zeboyd's Breath of Death VII and Cthulhu Saves the World, we knew we didn't have to look around anymore. Zeboyd was a perfect match."

Episode 3 is set to launch next year.
