Gabe and Tycho, the boys behind Penny Arcade, PAX and the annual charitygasm that is Child’s Play, decided one day that they wanted to make a game. Unlike you, however, they apparently had the clout (and the total disdain for brevity) to make that happen. With the above trailer for On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness (cribbed from the disc attached to the latest issue of PC Gamer), the end result is C’thulhu meets Celda by way of Guybrush Threepwood.

Personally, I plan on picking this title up on launch day, if only to support the creative efforts of a group designing games the way they want to play them, as opposed to the traditional focus-group-tested, mother-approved approach. Oh, and also because Gabe has expressly assured me that the box will ward off draculas.

My room is chock-full of draculas! Swarms of them!
