Penny Arcade's brand new episodic adventure/RPG game, On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness, has shaped up to be a pretty swell deal. While I only had time to play the first few minutes of the demo last night, it managed to do its part in teasing me with promises of fun, excitement, and kittens. The part of the game where I acquired T. Kemper, the side-kick kitten for battle, is why there are promises of kittens.
The game has a heavy feeling of adventure game-like progression tied in with colorful notes of comic book humor in true Penny Arcade fashion. Of exciting note is the character creator at the beginning which allows you to make a custom character in the style of Gabe and Tycho. While there are certainly limitations to the design customizations you can fool around with, there are all sorts of unspeakable joys that you will experience when you see your personalized avatar playing the main role in both 3D and 2D animations.
