Down from it's price of $14.99- or 1200 Xbox points, Steam is now selling each game from the famous webcomic of the same name for only 5 bucks.

Do battle with such nasty nefarious no-gooders as the Fruit Fucker and Deepcrows!


I missed out on the Trine deal, so I made sure I bought this the second I saw it.

Just a warning: The game is episodic and the last two episodes have not been released yet - and might never be released.

Awesome game though from what i played played - the demo

because they were supposed to be monthly episodes, then quarterly, and now they've been delayed for like 2 years.

and gabe & tycho won't comment about them except once to say "you'll understand why when they finally come out"


edit: still, gonna grab ep2 at that price. $20 was way too much

Awesome. Loved the first episode dearly, and have been waiting eagerly for the second to drop in price. Biting at this price. :D

Personally, I will probably jump at the sound of skeleton hooves and distant screaming for the rest of my life.

I think my wallet made a shrieking sound and scurried off into a dark corner, once I pulled up the Steam page.

Damn. Would buy the second but I don't think I have my savegame from the first one and I definitely don't want to play it again.

I wouldn't rush anyway, they're terrible games.

I already own them on Mac, but would buy them again at that price on the 360.

No chance in hell Episodes 3 & 4 come out, although I do not rule out some enthusiastic Penny Arcade fan with too much time and talent doing a homebrew version or strategy RPG that in some ways is better than the originals just to prove a point of some kind. They almost did it with cardboard tube samurai.

I will buy these in a minute as soon as they drop for consoles. Tried the demo and it was really interesting, just thought it was too expensive..

about time

Steam had been charging $20 for Ep1 forever now while it was $15 everywhere else

$5 is even better :D enough reason for me to rebuy them on Steam after already owning on Impulse

so if you play through 1 and 2, is it going to be disappointing to not have an ending?

Gah. Bought both Ep1&2 long ago for $15 each and they're still buried in my backlog. If it hits $5 each on 360, I may have to buy it there as well.

EDIT: OK, well, they were gifted to me when they were $15 each. Wasn't my money, but still...

Nah, it's meant to be episodic, so everything wraps up okay. The battle system is pretty clunky, but they're worth $5 each for the humor. If you dig PA, you'll probably enjoy yourself.
