I remember when I interviewed the Homestar Runner guys back in 2003. I was sure they were on the brink of founding a whole Homestar Runner entertainment empire. Christmas specials, parade floats, novelty mudflaps, the works. They were the Charles Schulz’s of the Web. After the interview ran I would get calls from publishers begging for the Brothers Chaps’s phone numbers.
As far as I know none of that ever happened. I don’t know why, maybe the Chappies just opted out. But they are releasing a Homestar Runner video game in June. The trailer is here:
Don’t know how this can possibly be better than Peasant’s Quest. Videlectrix forever.
Both games appear to have opted out of the high-tech graphics rat race. Which is fine with me, content being king and all. Such is my fanboyistic enthusiasm for Penny Arcade that I am even willing to engage in turn-based combat in exchange for more Penny Arcade content.
