On the Rain-slick Precipice of Darkness Episode One game review

31z e7sClAL On the Rain slick Precipice of Darkness Episode One

Upon beginning the story, you’ll quickly find that your home on the lovely Desperation Street has been flattened by a giant robot (specifically, a mammoth version of longtime Penny Arcade antagonist the Fruit Fucker). You’ll soon join forces with PA main characters Tycho Brahe and John Gabriel, paranormal detectives, as you investigate a mysterious infestation of mimes and smaller Fruit Fuckers throughout town.

I shouldn’t have been surprised at how shallow this game was, it had some fairly boring game mechanics and it had more of an idea of a plot that an actual plot.  Much could be said for the comic strip the guys run, it sometimes has good ideas, but they’re usually spread out between some pretty horrible ideas.  I got this several years ago and it festered in my Steam backlog, along with it’s three other episodes, and it was only after I put together a list of every game I have on ever game system (360/ps3/steam/gog/desure/et al) that I realized how many games have been sitting around being unplayed for years and years on end, and how much I actually wanted to play the Penny Arcade games.  I’m not disappointed in this one, I’m just hoping they learned from this episode and the next one will be an evolutionary step in quality and storytelling.

    I’ve played all 4. The second is pretty much the same as the first. The 3rd and 4th were made by a different company and are much worse. They weren’t made with RPG Maker, but look like they were. Episode 3 is an old school RPG with some interesting new mechanics. Episode 4 is what Pokemon would be like if it were made with RPG maker.

    well that’s rough to hear, I really want to finish them, if only to say that I did it. I think the game’s only saving grace is that it’s not a very long game, and should only take about 6 or 7 hours to completely finish it: howlongtobeat.com/game.php?id=6961
