According to an announcement at the Game Developers Conference this year the official Penny Arcade game, On The Rain-Slick Precipice Of Darkness, will be released this spring.

The game has been on show over the course of the conference and has attracted many fans who want to have a look at the Lovecraft-inspired title which has been developed with the aid of web-personalities Tycho and Gabe, as well as The Secret of Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert.

On The Rain-Slick Precipice Of Darkness has divided fans of the Penny Arcade comic and, while some have seen the game as the logical extension of the Penny Arcade brand, others see it as classic sell-out strategy.

Either way, we'll get a chance to see for ourselves this summer when the game is released.

The game is currently being billed as a team-based action adventure hybrid presented in a cel-shaded style consistent with the cartoon.

On The Rain-Slick Precipice Of Darkness is currently confirmed for the Xbox 360 and PC and will be released episodically.
