Penny Arcade Adventures Episode 1 + 2′s player character is dead
Or possibly only mostly dead, no one’s too sure.
We talked to Robert Boyd at PAX East this past weekend and he confirmed that the rake-wielding player character of Penny Arcade Adventures Episode 1 and Episode 2 will not be making an appearance in Penny Arcade’s On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3. Officially, the character’s location is unknown, so maybe if we bug the boys at Zeboyd enough, he (or she) will make a return engagement.
Boyd revealed that he wanted to kill off the character in the opening moments of Penny Arcade 3, but the idea was nixed by Jerry “Tycho” Holkins himself. Considering the fact that we were standing in a giant convention center dedicated to his greatness and talking about a game bearing his pixelated likeness, I guess he had some pull.
As a compromise, Boyd assured us that one of the character classes players will be able to choose is “Gardener,” so as to “satisfy the need for rake-based attacks.”
Penny Arcade’s On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 will be out this Summer on the Xbox Live Indie Games Channel, PC, and mobile devices.
