Finale: Penny Arcade - OTR-SPOD Episode Four

The fourth episode of Penny Arcade: Otter Spod will be the final chapter in the comic saga. There's a good chance anyone who played the game, or followed development, already knew that number four was the finale, but I've been under a rock playing strategy games instead. I really should emerge from time to time, not only because it'd be good for my posture, but because I actually enjoyed Zeboyd's previous games. In conversation with IGN, Zeboyd say that the sequel will be less linear and will encourage a variety of strategies. They also talked about their plans for the future, more of which below.

I don't keep up with Penny Arcade's output anymore, although I do tend to chuckle at the strips if someone links me to them. Zeboyd's own creations are fantastic though and their next project already sounds hugely appealing:

After we finish up with On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness, we have a sci-fi/spy RPG idea that we've been planning for a while that we're going to be working on. Code name acronym: CSH. Distant future setting, female protagonist, on-map battles, more animated sprites, cool level-up system. In short: the works. We'll probably be doing a Kickstarter for that project after we have some gameplay footage ready to show since we want to really take things up to the next level.

That short description doesn't mention comedy. I'd be interested to see a straight-faced sci-fi/spy RPG from Zeboyd, or anyone else for that matter. Well, preferably not from Tim Langdell.
