Penny Arcade Adventures Developer Q&A
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Gamasutra has posted a short article examining a Hothead Games developer discussion at the recent Penny Arcade Expo (PAX). The discussion revolved around the company's upcoming Penny Arcade Adventures: On The Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness.

The session was not without insight, however. When asked about multi-platform support, Ceraldi was quick to state his status as a "Mac fiend," part of the reason the game will see simultaneous release on PC, Macintosh and Linux platforms. When questioned as to why they would support Linux, he replied that "we feel like gamers should be able to choose the platform, not the other way around."

When questioned specifically about the collaboration between Hothead and Penny Arcade, the panelists were always polite. "Mike and Jerry are a lot of fun," answered DeYoung, "but they are very picky about the world they've created." Another, more pointed, question was aimed the transitive journey Penny Arcade was taking from jeering consumer of content to active game developer. Replied DeYoung, "When they came to us, they felt that they were quite humble, but now having gone through the majority of the process, they are now very humble indeed."
