Penny Arcade Game Coming to OS X
1:09 PM | IMG News | 1 comment

In time for their annual PAX event, the web comic Penny Arcade has announced they are creating a video game in conjunction with Hothead Games to be released for Mac OS X, Windows, Linux and even consoles. Titled Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness, the game will be episodic and has been described to be in the same vein as the LucasArts classic, Sam & Max.

Here's more from the report at Kotaku:

"We're really excited to be working with Hothead Games on our first electronic adventure," said writer Jerry "Tycho" Holkins. "From the moment we laid eyes on them, it was clear they had the technical and creative chops to execute our grim vision. Now that we have pooled our strengths, our dark work may truly begin."

While the team is excited about the possibility of the game, they also realize how important it is they get it right.

"This is something that they've always wanted to do, but at the same time they know how risky it is," Khoo said. "We have to ensure it is nothing short of awesome."

While a release date is unknown at this point, stay tuned to IMG for the latest.
