Penny Arcade Team to Debut "Pandora for games" App at PAXby Craig Getting on August 23, 2011 4:00 PM EST

The webcomic mavens over at Penny Arcade are teaming up with EEDAR, a games industry consultancy created by former game designer Geoff Zatkin, to create the Decide-o-tron app for iPhone and iPad.
“The Decide-O-Tron is essentially Pandora for games,” wrote Jerry Holkins, aka “Tycho”, on the Penny Arcade website yesterday. “ It can very quickly build a library of the games you like and own, and then - just as quickly - tell you what you should play next.”
The Decide-o-tron will leverage EEDAR’s massive games database (which dates back to the GameBoy Advance) to makes its recommendations. You’ll also be able to browse other users’ libraries and create wishlists that you can forward to your friends around the holidays.
The free app should be available “in the next week or two” says Holkins, but attendees of this weekend’s Penny Arcade Expo can check it out in person. There's no word on whether versions for Android or other platforms will follow.
