The guys from Penny Arcade are truly testing the bounds of the term "meta" by featuring 3D representations of the 2D counterparts of their very 3D selves in their forthcoming game. They've also broken Joystiq's Acronymizer 3000 with its title: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness: Episode One. The brand-new trailer for the game (offered first to PC Gamer readers) appears above.

We get some nice looks at the game's combat and character creation system, as well as at some of the slick 2D animation (the meta thickens!). We know that this is their first crack at a game of their own, but we're definitely laying down what they're picking up, as the kids say. Want more? You can find some PC Gamer covers featuring characters from the game on the PA site today.
