      I still haven't recieved my certificate. Should I be concerned.

    2. Creator Sanskar Wagley on September 25, 2013

      Plans for another campaign?

    3. Creator jackrenter on August 8, 2013

      sent an email, no reply.............

    4. Creator jackrenter on July 22, 2013

      theres alot i havent got. tshirt, dickstarter print, tycho songs, lookout print....

    5. Creator Chris Hoefgen on June 21, 2013

      Crap, that explains why I got the shirt which I didn't think I signed up to get :(

    6. Creator Penny Arcade on June 18, 2013

      Chris - the $150 level you selected was for the t-shirt, not the beta test / game. If for some reason we missed something, let us know and shoot us a note to Thanks!

    7. Creator Chris Hoefgen on June 18, 2013

      Now that On the Rain-slick Precipice of Darkness 4 has released on Steam, when should the the $150 backers be expecting to get their copies?

    8. Creator vid Strickland on May 15, 2013

      Are any of the certificates still in the mail backlog? I'm still patiently waiting, and I recently saw a few photos where people had received theirs some months ago. I don't want to be "that guy", I'm just curious. Thanks!

    9. Creator Penny Arcade on April 13, 2013

      Hey, Adam - we received your previous email. Someone should have been in touch by now, I will followup with them!

    10. Creator Adam Garner on April 13, 2013

      I sent a message to the in box about a missing certificate as well but it looks like the comments page is the way to go. Hoping to get one soon. Please keep up the good work!

    11. Creator Penny Arcade on April 4, 2013

      Hey, Benjamin - someone will be in touch shortly, thanks!

    12. Creator Benjamin on April 4, 2013

      Certificate having not arrived, not that i doubt you sent it. It may have gotten lost!

    13. Creator Benjamin on April 4, 2013

      Who should i e-mail about the certificate, sorry to make a fuss about it, just been super excited! Love the video guys!

    14. Creator Barkeep on April 4, 2013

      del that, last one, i went for $25, so i think i got miss on the list.

    15. Creator Barkeep on April 4, 2013

      Oh come on! i got miss in the Duck reading as i forgot to add $1 as i went for the Beta Test!

    16. Creator Phillip Taylor on February 24, 2013

      I'm still waiting on my certificate. UK based, but I have a friend in a nearby city that received his already so...

    17. Creator Penny Arcade on January 22, 2013

      John - hmm! Yes, that is super odd. I'm assuming you've checked your spam filter etc - shoot us a note to, and we'll get you all straightened out. Thanks!

    18. Creator John on January 22, 2013

      I received all my tangible rewards as well as PA book 1 and RSPD3. Should I have received PA book 2 by now?

    19. Creator Penny Arcade on January 16, 2013

      Brendan: The full RSS feed was a stretchgoal we didn't hit, unfortunately. We still have ads on the comic page, meaning that ad revenue still keeps the lights on over here and wasn't replaced by KS dollars. But fear not, we think we may have a solution in the future that will be in everyone's interests. Thanks!

    20. Creator Brendan Long on January 16, 2013

      Now that there's no ads on, can you make the RSS feed have the full content, instead of a snippet and a link? It would be nice if Penny Arcade worked in offline mode on RSS readers..

    21. Creator Nils Anker Tønner-Oldefar on January 11, 2013

      I got my certificate last week. Awesome! Keep up the good work PA

    22. Creator Penny Arcade on January 9, 2013

      Bill - Should be this week, actually!

    23. Creator Bill Wert on January 9, 2013

      Any word on when the singles will be distributed?


    24. Creator Penny Arcade on January 2, 2013

      Hi, Edmo - the steam code should have been delivered over a month ago. Can you check your spam folder? If not, email us at and we'll get it sorted out. Thanks!

    25. Creator Edmo Suassuna Filho on January 2, 2013

      Hey guys, I got two emails so far, the ones with the books, thanks a lot :)
      How is the game being sent, by steam gifting or via key-by-email? Just so I know to look it up.
      I still didn't get the physical stuff, but I'm International, so I know it will take a while.
      Thanks a lot! the new ad-free page is gorgeous! Happy new year!

    26. Creator Joshua Collins on January 1, 2013

      Excellent. I was just a little concerned since I never heard anything. Thanks for the quick response.

    27. Creator Penny Arcade on January 1, 2013

      Joshua - yup, you're on our "off-list" sheet, so you'll be contacted soon. Don't worry, we didn't forget about you!

    28. Creator Joshua Collins on January 1, 2013

      First of all, happy new year. With the launch of the ad-free site, i realized that I never actually received any of my rewards that were slated for December 2012. Looking back, I also see I never got the survey that was supposed to be sent out after PAX Prime.

      I had one of the fancy rewards that did not include the lower ones, but I also paid for the $150 t-shirt reward (and thus all the lower ones) on top of that, and sent the email to the kickstarter email at penny arcade as instructed, but haven't heard anything about the other rewards. I presume this just got lost somehow.

      Any help?


    29. Creator Andrew on December 30, 2012

      Received my emails for both books, the steam code, and the prints. Just need that video :) But seriously, thanks a lot to you guys, everything looks great! Happy New Year.

    30. Creator Penny Arcade on December 28, 2012

      David - The certs are going out this week! Thanks for the patience, and have a happy new year!

    31. Creator David Gardiner on December 28, 2012

      Thanks guys, got the ebook link, and the errrr "pet name", was wondering if the certificates are being mailed out as well, no mention of them in the email ?

    32. Creator Penny Arcade on December 26, 2012

      Rob, just sent you a message!

    33. Creator Rob Harrop on December 26, 2012

      Guys, just wondering if there is any update on the codes for Rain Slick. I see that you said they were being mailed out in October but mine never arrived. Thanks.

    34. Creator Penny Arcade on December 13, 2012

      @David Gardiner - the digital books are getting delivered at the end of this month.

      @Mathias Uslar - the timetable on the righthand side still stands - if we deviate from that we'll let you know.

      Thanks for the patience, guys - thanks!

    35. Creator Mathias Uslar on December 13, 2012

      Guys, I like your comics, but honestly, this stuff here is pretty much nonsense and really a mess I was really looking forward to the comic and got a bit upset when I saw this being first on humble bundle - but hey, I bought it because I also wanted SMBC and XKCD - I understand you have no such heavy load servers to sent out all the digital comics at once, but you stated December - I would only be respectful to all backers at least to provide an update on your planned timetable for the small rewards (x<= 25 Dollars)

    36. Creator David Gardiner on December 11, 2012

      Any update on us getting the digital book, etc

    37. Creator Jon Sourbeer on November 29, 2012

      @KevinKauffman and LaurenPagan - I'm like you, eagerly waiting for the betaread. If you guys (and/or the other two betareads, wherever they may be) are up for it, maybe we should exchange our works in the interim? I know we're all looking for feedback, and all share some common ground with PA. If you're interested, I'm sure we could coordinate it via e-mail.

    38. Creator Kevin Kauffmann on November 26, 2012

      Hey, like Lauren I also selected the Beta Read reward level. Even if it's just a ballpark figure, I'd like to know when you'd be sending out the surveys. Like, it it's just a couple weeks away or if it'll be closer to May. Kinda has some bearing on my writing schedule.

    39. Creator Justin on November 20, 2012

      When does the duck thing happen?

    40. Creator Lauren Hartman on November 13, 2012

      Ok, cool, good to know.

    41. Creator Penny Arcade on November 9, 2012

      Hi, Lauren - for the larger rewards (like the beta read), we're reaching out to you individually once the bulk of our initial reward fulfillment is done. No worries, we haven't forgotten about you!

    42. Creator Lauren Hartman on November 9, 2012

      Hey, I selected the Beta Read reward level and I haven't heard anything from you guys about it yet. When exactly do you want me to send that in (and where?) and when can I expect it to be finished?

    43. Creator Aaron Patterson on November 1, 2012

      @TychoBrahe I pledged to your kickstarter campaign and am now picking up a puppy(standard poodle(big)) in 2weeks. She needs a name.

      - Aaron Patterson ‏@terriblesecret

    44. Creator Penny Arcade on October 31, 2012

      Hey, Adam - we'll be delivering the codes out in the next two weeks for Steam, so you can download both the PC and Mac versions from there. Thanks!

    45. Creator Shiny Sheep on October 31, 2012

      Greetings! I funded the $50 pledge which includes a copy of On the Rain-slick Precipice of Darkness 3. I've been waiting for the Mac version to be released and now that it has, I'm wondering when/how I'll be receiving it. Thanks in advance.


    46. Creator Justin Adair on October 26, 2012

      Thank you for clarifying with the HB charity information. I am a proud backer/supporter of both HB and PA. I still feel slighted though that's now established.

      Try to make you're backers feel special on Kickstarter, Robert, not like tools. If I can get the same stuff just anywhere by paying money for it , then what is Kickstarter for? You did mess up with that one. Bye.

    47. Creator Penny Arcade on October 26, 2012

      You're jumping to conclusions with misinformation. We do not claim charitable deductions for Humble Bundle. None of the authors/creators to HB do or are even allowed to do that, as that's not how charitable writeoffs work. It's clear to me you can't be satisfied here, so again, all I can do is say I'm sorry you feel slighted.


    48. Creator Justin Adair on October 26, 2012

      I just paid twice for the same thing, and I didn't even receive it the first time. Yes I feel slighted, and yes, if you claim charitable deductions on the HB while pocketing your "not storefront" earnings from the Kickstarter for the same thing, there will problems, only not from me.

    49. Creator Penny Arcade on October 26, 2012

      When the rewards were created, yes, the books had never been released. I'm sorry if you feel slighted by this somehow, but the rewards are not meant to be a storefront, but rather as a reward for those that wanted to contribute to the greater cause.
