Today we posted the first Penny Arcade Fallout comic that begins an original series/story that Tycho and Gabe did for us. When we first approached the guys about doing this, years ago at this point, we really wanted to do something where they just kind of ran with it. Let them come up with their own ideas, whether it was a bunch of standalone strips, or one that worked all together, or whatever. We really didn’t care whether it had anything to do with Fallout 3, or its locations or characters, we just wanted to see what would happen when Penny Arcade did Fallout.
So we went back and forth with them providing what info and assets we could, and Tycho and Emil would trade emails about different ideas of things they had come up with. They picked at some different ideas, but it wasn’t until I had a chance to go show them the game many months ago that it really clicked for them, I think. And they came up with this idea of telling their only story of one of the other Vaults. And it was one of those great things where we started getting strips over in bunches and it went from start to finish in a hurry.
We’ll be releasing a new strip every Wednesday for the next couple of months. We hope you enjoy them!
