The concluding chapter in the Penumbra duology, Black Plague, is out next week, and we hear word that it matches up to the tension and entertainment of the original, and thankfully loses the shoddy combat. Now you can check for yourself, with the first four levels available as a demo. It’s 9.33 Standard Peggles.
As we reported last year, the Penumbra games were meant to be a trilogy, but the last two parts have been built into one. The project has shown remarkable promise by the developing duo at Frictional Games. Hopefully we’ll see them apply all the learning, and original thinking, into something new in the near future.
