Meet quirky antihero Willy, who’s trapped in a crazy circus. He must run, jump and avoid killer death traps. He must survive the ongoing armada of destruction as long as he can. Welcome to Penarium.

Watch Willie die working solo, die working with friends, die working against his friends…you get the idea. Die your way through Willie’s journey to become the most glorious contestant a crowd has ever seen.

Oh…and you’re Willy.

Look for Penarium September 22nd on PC and PS4, and September 23rd on Xbox One.

‘Nuff said.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal. "I put my heart and soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process." - Vincent Van Gogh "I need solitude for my writing; not like a hermit - that wouldn't be enough - but like a dead man." - Franz Kafka "I've been to hell and back, my boy." - Susan Ashworth, The Cat Lady
