Penny Arcade's On the Rainslick Precipice of Darkness was meant to be a trilogy, but that plan was cut short when developer Hothead decided to move onto the DeathSpank franchise. Today, the Penny Arcade Adventures have been resurrected again, new developer in tow.

Zeboyd Games, developer of Cthulu Saves the World and Breath of Death VII, will be working on the reanimated third episode.

When the Penny Arcade Adventures series got canceled, the comic duo had intended to conclude the series in a non-interactive format. "We're going to finish that story but it's going to be on our website. Our main goal at this point is to make sure that people aren't left hanging on a narrative side, and to allow Hothead to do the best they can on their project."

While today's announcement preserves the intended format of the project--as an interactive video game--the third installment will be a radical departure from previous entries. RPGamer reports thtat "the graphical style will be a 16-bit style similar to that of Final Fantasy VI." No platforms have been announced yet, but the plan is to release on "as many systems as we can."

      Great idea to do it in 16-bit style. I might try it this time.

      "the graphical style will be a 16-bit style similar to that of Final Fantasy VI." - I'm now more interested than I was in the first couple of games.

      I absolutely fell in love with the first two games. Sad to see the graphical style change, but I deeply want to see a conclusion. On the Rain Slick Precipice of Darkness >>>> Deathspank.
