    Penny Arcade’s “On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3” Now Available for
    iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Select Android Platforms, and Mac
    With bonus content!  “Lair of the Seamstress” DLC built in to new platforms, free add-on for PC and Xbox

    October 25, 2012 – Seattle, WA – Penny Arcade’s “On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3” releases today for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android and Mac, following from its earlier availability on PC and Xbox.  The game, which chronicles the saga of Apocalyptic Studies scholar Tycho Brahe, and his volatile, probably entirely human partner Jonathan Gabriel, now includes the “Lair of the Seamstress” DLC.  This brutal bonus dungeon features unique mechanics designed to test players, and find them wanting.

    In the ever escalating perils on the increasingly Rain-Slick Precipice, Gabe and Tycho encounter a cunning evil Doctor, a series of Unexplainable Thefts, a Mysterious Book of Power, Enigmatic Supernatural Forces, Hobo Kings, Roboids, and more!

    Joystiq calls the game “An easy recommendation” and Wired.com’s review says it’s “Filled with quality.”  The new platform releases announced today will, no doubt, inspire people to say even
    nicer things.

    Zeboyd Games, the creators of “Cthulhu Saves the World” and “Breath of Death VII: The Beginning”, have developed the game with Penny Arcade.  Zeboyd’s stylized pixel-visuals and inspirations from all-time classic RPGs have come to define their games.  The new Rain-Slick Precipice game builds from the visual style established by Penny Arcade’s Mike Krahulik, and Jerry Holkins has collaborated closely with Zeboyd’s Robert Boyd and Bill Stiernberg on the story and script.  TinkerHouse Games, which partnered with Zeboyd on the iOS and Android releases for “Cthulhu Saves the World”, has taken on the new platform adaptations for “On the Rain-Slick Precipice Darkness 3” as well.

    The game’s website (found at http://www.rainslickgame.com) has information and links for downloading the game on all platforms.  This new DLC, as well as the next one, are available at no additional charge for any version of the game.
