Game Over: Penny Arcade Episode Four Out Now

I haven't played a Penny Arcade: Otter Spod (thank you, Adam, for opening my eyes to the wonders of this acronym's pronunciation possibilities) game since the first, rather lukewarm episode by Hothead games, but I'm quite keen to try out the latter half of the series, as Zeboyd are devastatingly handsome kings of comedy. So I guess I have some catching up to do, because Episode Four is officially out today, thus concluding the quadrilogy once and four all. But maybe you're worried. Does this one have graphics? Sound? Is it even a game at all? I mean, for all we know, it could just be another poorly conceived Kickstarter in a videogame costume. Put your fears to rest with a trailer after the break.

Riboflavin! Spellcheck didn't underline it when I typed it out, so it must be a real thing. (Curiously, however, it did underline "spellcheck". But if spellcheck's not real, then that means... OH GOD WHAT IS REALITY.)

At any rate, Penny Arcade: On The Rain-Slick Precipice Of Darkness Episode Four is about things. Specifically, these:

"Penny Arcade’s On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 4 concludes the saga of Tycho Brahe, Scion of The Long Project, and his almost certainly human partner Jonathan Gabriel. The world has been destroyed, but existence extends beyond this mortal plane in the gruesome Underhell! The new game expands considerably on its predecessor in size, scope and gameplay. Create the ultimate fighting force by recruiting bizarre, occasionally disgusting monsters and teaming them up with the best trainer for the job."

So it's kinda like Pokemon, I guess. Maybe? Pokemon had giant statues of a shamelessly suggestive fruit fornicating robot, right? I'm fairly certain I remember that.

You can buy Penny Arcade: Otter's Pod (nah, the first one was better) Episode Four on Steam right now. Do you think you can you do that? Will you do that?
