Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness has had a pretty interesting history. After two semi-successful games and a long hiatus, the third entry in the series was released on mobile platforms, as well as PC and the Xbox Live Indie Games service.

This time around, developer Zeboyd games has stated that they're sticking with just XBLIG and PC. Robert Boyd, employed at Zeboyd, has this to say on the matter, "Our mobile games & ports haven't done so well so the new PA RPG will only be on PC & XBLIG. Apologies to fans of iOS/Mac/Android."

Well, there you have it -- you'll just have to pick it up somewhere else if you were planning on a mobile release. The good news is, your PC can probably handle it!

As for the project itself, Zeboyd reports that the game is already about 50 percent bigger than Rain-Slick 3. At release, the game is planned for a $5 price point.

It wasn't that long ago that auto-run platformers were novel, even quaint. Bit.Trip RUNNER, Canabalt, Vib-Ribbon, and even Anthony Burch's Runner all managed to get out to the market before Endless Runner stigma became a par...more

Combo Queen brings jiggle physics to an SNES aesthetic

It's not that animated breasts are all Combo Queen has going for it. They're just the first thing I noticed clicking around the trailer and ending up on a bouncy idle animation.  The pixel art here is rather lovely...more

More games need cupcakes as playable characters

I'm a jerk who totally forgot about The Behemoth's Game 4 despite playing a fun chunk of the tactical role-playing title alongside its narrator, Will Stamper, and loving every minute of it. So to selfishly put it back on my ...more
