Demo now available for download.

A new demo for the PC version of the Penny Arcade game is now available for download.

Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness, as it's formally known, is an episodic RPG adventure game. It's been developed by Hothead Games together with Mike Krahulik and Jerry Tycho Holkins - better known to Penny Arcade fans as Gabe and Tycho. Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert also stepped in to lend a hand.

The PC demo is now available via the game's official digital distribution site.

Alternatively, you might like to try downloading Episode One in its entirety from Xbox Live Arcade. It'll cost you though - 1600 Microsoft Points (GBP 13.60 / EUR 19.20) to be precise.
