Today is a big day for us. The Steve and Ash characters from MegaCynics are featured in today's Penny Arcade strip. Seriously, go check it out of you don't believe us. And we are featuring the Gabe and Tycho characters in MegaCynics. It's a very cool moment.
It's cool because we at MegaCynics are pretty huge fans of Penny Arcade. I know that puts us in a pretty good company, but whatever. It's true. They blazed an amazing trail through the online landscape, and we are proud to follow in some of their footsteps.
What's awesome is that over the years, we've had the chance to get to know Mike and Jerry a bit. We've had the honor to be involved in some of their cool activities, like raising money for their awesome Child's Play Charity. We've even played Thornwatch with them at Penny arcade HQ.
This comic is based on that night. The game has a cool mechanic whereby you assign your characters flaws. Steve really did wonder what it would be like to try and use real world flaws in the characters, and this comic was born from that idea. We didn't really have a big fight in front of Mike and Jerry. But we totally could have.
