Is there a better way to get into the spirit of PAX than to have one of the best-selling digital titles of all time sport new and awesome Penny Arcade character skins? Trendy Entertainment thinks not, and as a result, are thrilled and honored to announce that for the PC version of Dungeon Defenders, several of the beloved webcomic’s characters will be playable as part of a special PAX-themed DLC pack on sale on Steam by Friday, April 6 (http://www.dungeondefenders.
“We’re all HUGE fans of the Penny Arcade strip, and of how they’ve consistently churned out hilarious and thought-provoking comics on the gaming industry for well over a dozen years,” said Jeremy Stieglitz, CTO and co-founder of Trendy Entertainment. “It’s a gigantic feather in our cap to hear that Mike and Jerry are fans of Dungeon Defenders – they’re famously selective about which games they work with, and we’re ecstatic to have made the cut. We hope these characters provide some levity and excitement for our PC players leading into the best gaming festival around.”
Here are the four Penny Arcade character skins coming to the PC version of Dungeon Defenders:
- • Cardboard Tube Samurai (Gabe’s alter-ego – skin for the Monk Class)
- • Tycho (skin for the Squire Class)
- • Annarchy (skin for the Huntress Class)
- • Jim Darkmagic (skin for the Apprentice Class)
In addition to all this Penny Arcade goodness, Trendy is awesome enough to give PAX goers a chance to play the upcoming Aquanos DLC (part three of four from the Quest for the Lost Eternia Shards DLC) before it’s live! If you’re at PAX, you definitely don’t want to miss out coming by Reverb’s 808 booth.
