Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 is an indie action-adventure game developed by Zeboyd Games. It is the third part of the series.
The game is loosely based on Penny Arcade web-comic. Set in the 1920s version of Howard Phillips Lovecraft's novels, where the mysterious Doctor Blood steals the Necrowombicon, which can revive the dead. The world is on its way to complete annihilation. Tycho Brahe has to save humanity from oblivion.
At the beginning of the game, the players create their own unique character from scratch, as it is not possible to carry over your character from the last two games.
Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 is heavily inspired by titles like Final Fantasy. The gameplay consists of two main parts: combat and exploration.
The game features a turn-based combat system, like the one present in the Final Fantasy franchise with the player characters appearing on the left side of the screen and their enemies on the right. The players decide which abilities to use in their turn to either attack the enemies or defend themselves by using medkits or putting up shields. There are also several role-playing games in the game, as the players can level up their characters and unlock new skills and abilities.
During the exploration of the game's world the players learn more about the game's lore, find crucial items or take their time off upgrading their characters.
