The development of Penny Arcade’s On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 4 is coming along nicely at Zeboyd Games and the duo believes the project is far enough along to release a few screenshots showing off the new battle system (you can see them for yourself after the break).
Zeboyd is trying something a bit different with Penny Arcade 4. They’ve decided to ditch the Class system and replace it with a monster recruiting/training mode instead. And two of the monsters you’ll be able to recruit are the refined gentlemen monsters, Twisp and Catsby!
After they’ve agreed to join your team, monsters can be assigned a human trainer, which will affect how their stats level up. A new “Analyze” feature will also be added to your bag of holding, which will allow the Startling Developments Detective Agency a chance to pre-select which team members would be best to send into battle against a group of evil monsters.
Penny Arcade’s On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 4 will be on display at this year’s PAX East show (March 22-24) and will be available in the Spring on PC download services and the Xbox Live Indie Games channel.
