PlayStation 3 users may just be getting Episode 1 of Penny Arcade Adventures today, but everyone else will be getting its sequel next week. Developer Hothead Games has announced (via Kotaku) that Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness Episode Two will be available October 29 on the PC via the Greenhouse digital distribution service for $14.95 and Xbox LIVE Arcade for 1200 Microsoft Points ($14.99).
Hothead CEO Vlad Ceraldi said of the news, “With the cool gameplay additions we’ve made, including longer gameplay, completion tracking, and difficulty settings; extra Lovecraftian overtones in the world and music; and the perfect time of the year, everything just came together.”
Also included in the game is a song during the end credits by Canadian rock band The Darkest Hillside Thickets called “Some Things Man Was Not Meant to Know,” a track “dedicated to promoting the literature of H.P. Lovecraft.”
