6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Joystiq has posted a new article describing a Hothead Games developer discussion held at the recent PAX 07. The posting includes a description of what was shown during the Penny Arcade Adventures: On The Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness trailer and a run down of the highlights from the Q&A session. Joystiq is also offering a demo trailer of the game's character creation system in action.

During the Q&A session, Hothead said that their target gameplay length was 5 to 6 hours, and they plan to release new episodes every 3 to 4 months, and even discussed this as part of the first "season". They are using the Torque engine, which help, with the cross-platform approach. In terms of system requirements, they haven't started optimization yet, but expect those with a decent amount of RAM, and reasonable processors and graphics cards from the last four years should be able to run the game. The want it to work on laptops, and don't want consumers to have to upgrade to play it if possible.
