On The Rain-Slick Precipice With Hothead Games
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Gamasutra is now offering a new interview with Hothead Games' CEOs Steve Bocska and Vlad Ceraldi about the company and its upcoming projects, including Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness. The Q&A session examines the history of the company, trends in the gaming industry, and reveals what it is like to work with Gabe and Tycho.

How did you become involved with Penny Arcade?

VC: A few people I was working with kept talking about this ‘Penny Arcade’ thing about seven years ago. I checked it out and liked it, so we tried to get Gabe and Tycho into one of our games as secret characters. But the publisher eventually passed on the idea. A few years later, I got a chance to be on an industry panel at the first Penny Arcade Expo (PAX). We kept in contact ever since. When we started Hothead, one of our programmers here, Cary Brisebois, was a huge fan of Penny Arcade, knew Gabe and Tyco, and helped get us all together.

How important do you think it is for the game to be multiplatform?

VC: While it is always a good business decision to have a game on as many platforms as possible, we are doing it because we believe a gamer should have a choice to play a game on whatever system they want. There are a lot of great game platforms so we are operating system- and platform-agnostic. We would like to add more platforms as we continue production and for future episodes and games.
