Penny Arcade Adventures goes to Steam

Gets added achievements, user-base.

The first Penny Arcade adventure title is now available via Steam, Valve's digital distribution service.

Which seems a bit strange, given as it was the debut offering on the Penny Arcade-founded digital distribution service Greenhouse. Still, broader user-base and all that.

The Steam version will have added achievements so you can show off to your friends who, er, use Steam as well.

It has a familiar PC price tag of GBP 10 / EUR 13.

The game is available on Xbox Live Arcade too, but it costs a bit more at 1600 Microsoft Points (GBP 13.60 / EUR 19.20).

Unfortunately, despite the promise of lovely graphics and the overseeing eye of adventure game legend Ron Gilbert, the game turned out to be a bit mediocre.

Head over to our Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness, Episode One review to find out why. And can the next episode please have a shorter name thanks.
