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.
