Penny Arcade Adventures Interview

February 27th, 2008 by Crusader

Eurogamer has interviewed Hothead Games’ Ron Gilbert about Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness, the Penny-Arcade-based adventure game/RPG:

“Through and through, this is going to be an authentic Penny Arcade experience,” he says. “It’s going to feel like playing the comic. So it’s something we think fans are really going to love.”


With his name attached, Penny Arcade Adventures is likely to attract fans of Gilbert’s previous games. But without the mind-boggling puzzles, are they going to be disappointed? “I think what they’ll get out of this is the humour,” says Gilbert. “A lot of people love Monkey Island because it is a laugh-out-loud game. I think this game absolutely has that. Jerry is probably one of the top five writers I’ve ever worked with. So I think Monkey Island fans are going to like the humour in this game, definitely.”

Ron Gilbert also created Maniac Mansion, Monkey Island, and SCUMM, which lives on today in the open source project ScummVM.
