Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 Zeboyd Games 2012

This is a departure from the style of the previous two series' games, as a different indie developer has taken over. Players of Breath of Death VII and Cthulhu Saves The World will find the graphical style and battle trappings familiar, though with a new combat system reminiscent of the Grandia pushback system. Each character has a main job that players can easily recognize from the previous titles, but they can also equip subjobs as the story progresses. These subjobs include such auspicious roles as Crabomancer, Tube Samurai, and Elemenstor. Each subjob can be equipped on only one person at a time, so no doubling up on Gentleman or anything else. Jobs level up independently, so switching Hobo from Gabe to Tycho doesn't result in a loss of experience. Leveling up classes unlocks both new abilities and passive stat boosts, which are only applied when the class is equipped. The script is a joint effort between the Penny Arcade author Jerry Holkins and Robert Boyd, so expect a mix of the witty repartee found in the Penny Arcade strips with the ironic humor found in previous Zeboyd titles. There will be nods for veterans to appreciate including Pelican Bay and Hobo Alley. Battle unfolds with players on the right and enemies on the left. Characters begin at 0 MP and gain one per turn, while enemies begin at 100% power and build up strength the longer battle goes on to prevent winning by mere attrition. At the top of the screen is a turn bar, which shows when each individual enemy and ally will have their turn. The story follows Gabe and Tycho's exploration to retrieve their lost Necrowombicon, which disappeared in the previous Rain-Slick episode. Along the way they will meet a new character, named Moira, who has a hidden personal relationship with one of the established characters.
