On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness is an episodic RPG-adventure game series set in a deranged comic-book meets-pulp-horror 1920s universe. Armed with unconventional weaponry and witty repartee, you join forces with the Gabe and Tycho, the crime-solving team of the Startling Developments Detective Agency to make war on bizarre enemies and solve the mysteries hidden deep in the sinister heart of New Arcadia.
From the hilarious and twisted minds of Penny Arcade creators Mike "Gabe" Krahulik and Jerry "Tycho" Holkins, legendary game designer Ron Gilbert and veteran producers at Hothead Games comes a 100% authentic and hilarious Penny Arcade experience.

Brett's 2p'orth: If you're suffering the kind of bleak, rain-soaked Bank Holiday Monday that I am, this might be worth a browse. There's a YouTube trailer of the game, and Windows, Mac and Linux demo versions available to download on the site. Thanks to Teifion for bringing this to my attention.
