Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 4

Want to buy..
I want to buy while #3 + #4 are on sale, but 1 and 2 are not on steam, I understand most games can be played and still be fun even if you miss a couple installments, but will I be missing a major part of the game by doing so?

no, like the description says on the steam pages you do not need any other experience with the first 2 games. i recently bought it and im having a great time.

first two games are completely different gameplay wise but imo you should still try to play those one first but all the backstory is explained throughout the game

Actually, 1 and 2 are on Steam but they're under the developer Hothead Games. Here's a link for episode 1 :)

Thanks for the heads up everyone. And thank you J-Beanz for the link. Turns out if you search for *on the* rainslick precipice it only gives you episodes 3 and 4, but searching just for "precipice of darkness" turns up all 4.

I'd say that it's somewhat recommended to play 1 and 2 first, but by no means required. There'll be a few things here and there that don't make much sense without the backstory of 1 and 2, but you'd still be totally able to enjoy 3 and 4 as standalone games.

Right, that's how most games are anymore. I went ahead and bought 3+4 while they are on sale, but don't have any intention of playing until I own and play 1+2

I played maybe 3 hours of 1 and it was more than enough to introduce me to the characters. other then that i really didnt care for it. i love 3 & 4. they are two of my favorite games ever and i really didnt feel out of the loop because i didnt play the first two. there stories really carry themselves.

also cant wait for their new game. it looks like a huge jump from 4.
