What's this? A release date pushed forward? Did they not get the memo that all games ever must be pushed back into 2013?
Developer Zeboyd Games is bucking this trend by scooting the release of the long-awaited follow-up to Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 2 from July to June 25th. "The game is done so why wait that long?" Said Zeboyd on the company blog.
While the first two chapters were developed by Hothead Games in conjunction with Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert, this third installment is an indie affair headed by Cthulhu Saves the World developer Zeboyd Games. The indie developer will be making the fourth chapter in the series as well.
Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 will be released on XBLIG, iOS devices, and Android, with a Mac version to follow. It will cost 400 Microsoft points/$5. As an added bonus, those who buy it on Steam during its first week will receive a free copy of Cthulhu Saves the World. Not too shabby.
