Zeboyd Games (of Cthulhu Saves the World and Breath of Death VII and Molly the Were-Zompire fame) have done it again.

Penny Arcade is a web-comic that follows Tycho and Gabe through various scenarios. And they've been put into a game where Tycho is trying to end the universe before anyone else gets the opportunity.

Now, I haven't played the first two games but I don't feel that missing out on them is too big a worry for these, they're still highly enjoyable. It's an RPG, turn based combat. There's a load of classes atop the main class for each character. Tycho's a scholar, Moira's a Gumshoe, Jim is a Necromaster and Gabe is... well, Gabe (I forgot what his class is).

The story is humorous, the same humor that you get from Cthulhu Saves the World only not as meta (until the fourth one but that's another game review).

If you've played any old school RPG like Final Fantasy before it went 3D, or anything along similar lines, I recommend this to you.

I've played 1st and 2nd Precipice of Darkness a long time ago. Never managed to finish the game whatsoever. You don't have to play them to know the general story of the game. Just open the wikipedia page and read the summary.
A bit of warning though if you are playing this game after playing the 1st two games you might be dissapointed.

This third game is fundamentally different than the the first 2 mainly because of the devs are different now done by Zeboyd.
As for me i like Zeboyd's version better, because i play this game after playing Breath of Death VII and Cthulhu Saves the World. So i know what kind of "style" i was getting into.

Pros:
-Enemies are on fixed locations. So you don't have to worry about tedious random encounters ala classic rpgs.
-Characters fully healed and items regenerate after battles. Making the game much more simpler.
-MPs are not carried over to the next battles. Every characters start with fixed MP. So you don't have to worry about MP management anymore.
-Hilarious jokes. A bit different (classy) than Zeboyd's style because it's written by Penny Arcade's creator.
-Unique job system. Dinomancer anyone?
-Cool snes graphics. Reminds me a lot of Final Fantasy 6.

Cons:
-Very short. About 8 hours or so.
-Too simple and too easy. You only need to find classes that works for you and stick with them to the end. Rendering the customizations offered in the game mute.
You should play the game on Insane difficulty.
-Music are forgettable and pretty dull.
-Too linear. There is no exploration like in other Zeboyd games.
-Jokes takes a bit to getting used to. Most of the time it's a hit or miss for me.

A very different style from the first two episodes... a fact which disappointed me at first but I quickly got over it. The new devs for this series, Zeboyd, did a great job with this. The non-sensical comedy is still there but this game featured a more interesting plot. It actually had me genuinely surprised at some points which I did not expect from this series.

I'm not typically a huge fan of the turn based JRPG-like combat but I really enjoyed this one. Not sure what it did differently to make me like it more than in other games but it's sparked a wider interest in this genre for me so thanks Zeboyd.

A fun little addition was that you could gender swap the characters or turn them into furry or undead versions. As a woman who just enjoys playing female characters (just cause I relate to females more naturally), I really liked the gender swap option. I actually switched back to the traditional models for the last half of the game because by that point I just kinda wanted to experience Gabe and Tycho as they were meant to be... but I really appreciated the option being there.
