Hothead Games, who are currently conjuring code for Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness: Episode One (or PAA: OtRSPoD: E1) have won the Canadian New Media Award for Most Promising Company of the Year. The honor earns them, bragging rights notwithstanding, the prestigious Pixel award.
The award was given in recognition of the three projects Hothead is currently developing. In addition to the anticipated Penny Arcade Adventures, being developed in conjunction with legendary grumpy gamer Ron Gilbert, the developer is also working on Swarm, an "environmentally-themed comedy adventure game" with "machine learning" AI, and a joint venture with Cambrian House on Gwabs, a desktop-to-desktop combat title.
