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 to make it clear, this isn't a sale, it's a permanent pricedrop, so, if it makes a difference to anyone, there is no rush on this.

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

Any idea on why 3 & 4 might not get released?

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?

How do we know this is permanent?

Nice. They're both really awesome. If you like Penny Arcade you have to pick these up.

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.
