Penny Arcade game gets priced

At least the computer versions do.

Hothead Games has announced the price for the first instalment in episodic game series Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness.

It'll cost USD 19.95 (GBP half of that) for the Windows, Mac and Linux versions of the game. An Xbox Live Arcade version will launch simultaneously, but there's no word on how much it'll cost yet. Apparently episode one will offer "five to ten hours of gameplay".

PAA is being developed in co-operation with Ron Gilbert, him who did Monkey Island. For more on the game, why not read our recent interview with the man himself.

Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness is due out this spring.
