“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.”
