That seemed like the end of it, until the Penny Arcade team contracted with Zeboyd Games, the developer behind ''Videogame/BreathOfDeathVII'' and ''Videogame/CthulhuSavesTheWorld'', to produce Episode 3 as a [[{{Retraux}} 16-bit-styled]] RPG. This game was released on June 25, 2012 on {{Steam}} and June 29, 2012 for [[XboxLiveArcade Xbox Live Indie Games]]. Ports for the Mac, iOS, and Android were released on October 25, 2012. With them came the ''Lair of the Seamstress'' [[DownloadableContent DLC]], a [[BrutalBonusLevel challenging dungeon for overachievers]] that unlocks once the player has maxed out their Class Pins in the main game. The second DLC, ''The Beginning of the End'', was released on December 21, 2012 and elaborates on the fate of "Rake Guy" (the player character from the first two games). The fourth and final episode of ''Precipice'' was released on June 7, 2013.

* HellHasNewManagement: In Episode 4 - being consigned to The Underhell failed to slow down [[spoiler:Hestia]] even a little bit - the usurpation took mere months, and now an army of enslaved souls are busy tearing a hole in reality in order to open a portal back to Earth and facilitate a RoaringRampageOfRevenge in that general direction. Of course, if the heroes just happen to show up in Hell anyway, well, that makes things so much simpler...



* LikeABadassOutOfHell: A Type-III in Episode 4 - being consigned to The Underhell failed to slow down [[spoiler:Hestia]] even a little bit - the usurpation took mere months, and now an army of enslaved souls are busy tearing a hole in reality in order to open a portal back to Earth and facilitate a RoaringRampageOfRevenge in that general direction. Of course, if the heroes just happen to show up in Hell anyway, well, that makes things so much simpler...
** Interestingly, the entirety of Episode 4 would be one long Type-I example - seeing as you're fighting your way through hell - if it wasn't for the inconvenient lack of anywhere to escape TO. The 'Destroyed Hell from the inside out in order to bring about the rebirth of the cosmos' variant of this trope, however, isn't QUITE common enough to warrant its own subcategory...



* [[spoiler:LikeABadassOutOfHell: The trailer for episode four suggests this is the goal of Gabe, Moira and Jim. Tycho's case seems to be a ''bit'' more complicated than that.]]

* SpeciesSurname: Subverted. In ''Episode 4'', Twisp and Catsby from the webcomic--and imp and an anthropomorphic cat--make their appearance; one of the Underhell inhabitants tells the protagonists about them, noting how odd it is that Catsby isn't the cat, but the imp.

* DancingMookCredits: The credit sequences of the first two games have this as well, with various kinds of enemies doing silly dances.

** Charles in Episode 2. He gets labelled ''SISSY FIGHT!'' and despite having a massive amount of HP, it all drains away in just three punches. He's technically just a distraction while Tycho runs around Charles' place, look for a McGuffin while pilfering upgrade items along the way.

** Also the Gremlins guarding a bridge in the 8-bit portion of Episode 3--not only can you take each one out with one solid attack, but the only action they take on their turn is "Cower" which does nothing.

** Also the Gremlins guarding a bridge in the 8-bit portion of Episode 3--not only can you take each one out with one solid attack, but the only action they take on their turn is "Cower" which does nothing. Tycho complains afterwards since he'd been looking forward to a huge fight.
