Penny Arcade announces new site for independent games

Webcomic powerhouse Penny Arcade has announced that they have partnered with Hothead Games to create a new website called “Greenhouse” that will focus on selling downloadable independent games for PC, Mac, and Linux. The first game to be released will be “On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness, Episode One”, a role playing game featuring Penny Arcade characters.

“There are so many great games out there that you don’t hear about,” explained Penny Arcade business director Robert Khoo. “They’re too niche or too risky in terms of game play for the top publishers to be comfortable with distributing. We want the Greenhouse to be an alternative for these developers.”

Penny Arcade is one of the most financially successful webcomics that has branched out into other forms of licensing and a yearly convention.
