6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment
Hothead Games has announced that legendary game designer Ron Gilbert is assisting with the development of the upcoming Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness. Gilbert is perhaps best known as the co-creator of the Monkey Island series of adventure games.
On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness is the first episode in a planned episodic Penny Arcade Adventures series. It will feature characters from the Penny Arcade comics, including Gabe and Tycho.
"I have been a fan of Penny Arcade because I have always found their comic so funny and biting," said Gilbert. "When I first heard they were making a game and that they had chosen to weave adventure game elements into it, I knew immediately I wanted to be involved. Working with the Penny Arcade guys and the team at Hothead has been an absolute riot."Head over to the links below to learn more.

Jerry Holkins, a writer at Penny Arcade, can hardly believe he is working with Ron Gilbert on a game. "I can hardly believe it," suggested Holkins. "The whole thing is super crazy."
Joel DeYoung, the game's Producer at Hothead, pointed out that even though Gilbert's contract with the company did not require him to reveal the coveted secret of Monkey Island, that has not prevented them from trying. "We've definitely tried to get it out of him but have had no luck so far," said DeYoung. "He did make clear that if he told us the secret, he would have to kill us. We're already down two programmers and a designer."
