Hothead’s main reason for choosing the engine, though, was for its cross-platform support, with Hothead president Vlad Ceraldi saying: "Rather than building platform code from from the ground up, using Torque gave us far more time to hone the actual game."

To Hothead’s huge credit, the results are awesome. Looking at the game now, it’s a blast to play and definitely faithful to the Penny Arcade Comic’s style and humor."
