Ok, so my guess is a cartoon show on adult swim.

    I would guess that it had something with that survey they posted a few months ago that involved "top secret" things, according to Tycho. It was up for all of about 30 minutes and involved a ton of questions involving RPGs and RPG type things. Just a guess....

    I doubt they'll be doing an animated series. You never know.

    They did have that one animated short at the first PAX...

    Maybe a game?

    Can we get the chemicals in. 'Cause anything's better than this.

    In order of preference, I would want a game then a cartoon, as these things never translate well to animated cartoons. Games occasionally turn out okay.

    It's probably a cartoon, though.

    From the XFire chat:

    Tycho: Question: sorahiko: (For Tycho) I've noticed that your "blog" posts are often as amusing as the comic itself. With such a natural skill and unique wit for comedic writing, have you ever considered working on other writing projects, such as books or a screenwriting?

    Answer: Thank you for saying so. More than consider it, I have actively begun working on extra projects. Expect one to be announced at PAX, and another shortly thereafter.


    Hmm......

    edit: further down in the interview...

    cwgabriel: Question: LeonTheAsshat: I'd like to know PA stands as far Gaming and Publication is concerned and with the huge popularity that has come from such a great series. The rumors of PA The Series has been floating around a lil more actively since E3, but also popularity doesn't place food on teh table to a degree. My Question to both is how you guys deal with events like as well and The Rumor of you moving your offices is a false one?

    Answer: We will not be doing an animated series. We've been approached multiple times and it never works at least not any time soon

    edit 2:

    cwgabriel: Question: What happened to GabeArt?

    Answer: I am working on that but it will not be a separate site. We are making a huge announcement at our first Q&A panel of PAX. Once the word is out I will try and do more sketch dumps on the site. I should have plenty of material.

    edit 3+4:

    cwgabriel: Question: craziivan: Gabe you said animating the PA strip wouldn't work, have ever done any animating otherwise?

    Answer: I don't have the patience to animate. And really I am not saying it would not work, just that none of the people who have approached us yet have made us believe they can make it work. I'm not saying PA will never be animated. It just needs to be the right people doing it and we have not seen that deal yet. Like Tycho said all these hollywood types think they are doing you a favor.

    Tycho: Question: mittens: Do you (or, even, would you) ever help developers with storylines/art for commercial games?

    Answer: Tycho: You are describing my most secret fantasy.

    Answer: cwgabriel: Of course that would be a lot of fun I think.

    He was the art guy that was posessed by Vigo, Scourge of Carpathia, Sorrow of Moldavia. Then he got hosed down by the Ghostbusters.

    It's not an animated series. Gabe wouldn't hint at something that huge.

    Well, plus he straight-up said "We ain't doing no fucking animated series for the foreseeable future" in that interview a number of times.

    I really hope that they are writing and doing art for a game. One that's not based in the PA universe.

    Same here. A Sam & Max-style adventure game with Gabe's art and Tycho's writing done in a WWII-era alt-universe would be fucking awesome.

    The announcement is obviously that they're quitting the web comics industry to pursue their acting careers.

    Or some kind of ongoing comic book series.

    In a way, the humor of that and being able to tell the story of being there when it happened would almost be worth it.

    I wouldn't put my money on a regular full length animated series or anything, but vignettes would be good. Something like that would work real well for the re-birth of techTv (aka, undoTV) currently in the works.

    could be an animated series based on their work, not about gaming, something to appeal to a wider audience.

    could be sideshow collectible maquettes based on the strip.

    could be ham.

    could be free circumcisions to all PAX attendees.

    Or, it might have something to do with the new PSA campaign by the ESRB. We might see the guys' work animated in the form of television commercials.
