Today is a big day for indie games. The Penny Arcade game, On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness is out! And unlike my other favorite indie studio, Hothead launched this for Windows, Mac, and Linux all at the same time. Oh and some kind of H-Box or something, I don't know.

I downloaded the Linux version, which worked out of the box on my amd64 Gentoo install. I'm a fan after 20 minutes. It has a character creator that affects both the 2D comics and the 3D game world; a good real-time RPG battle system; and the kind of quirky humor generally missing from video games since the '90s. I hope they make many more episodes.
