      So, this is the last year I'll get into PAX West without having to buy a ticket from a scalper, thanks to pledging at the $2k level back in 2012 - will there be another campaign? I'd be happy to spend another few thousand for another five years of hassle-free PAX passes.

      All of the certs were sent... years ago... send an email to and we'll see if we can get it all sorted. Thanks!

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

    9. Penny Arcade 3-time creator on

      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!

      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?

    11. vid Strickland on

      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!

    12. Penny Arcade 3-time creator on

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

    13. Adam Garner on

      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!

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

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

    19. Phillip Taylor on

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

    20. Penny Arcade 3-time creator on

      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!

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

      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!

    23. Brendan Long on

      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..

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

      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!

    28. Edmo Suassuna Filho on

      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!

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

    30. Penny Arcade 3-time creator on

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

      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?


    32. Andrew on

      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.

    33. Penny Arcade 3-time creator on

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

    34. David Gardiner on

      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 ?

    35. Penny Arcade 3-time creator on

      Rob, just sent you a message!

      Rob Harrop on

      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.

    37. Penny Arcade 3-time creator on

      @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!

    38. Mathias Uslar on

      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)

    39. David Gardiner on

      Any update on us getting the digital book, etc

    40. Jon Sourbeer on

      @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.

      Kevin Kauffmann on

      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.

    42. Justin on

      When does the duck thing happen?

      Lauren Hartman on

      Ok, cool, good to know.

    44. Penny Arcade 3-time creator on

      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!

    45. Missing avatar

      Lauren Hartman on

      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?

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

      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!

    48. Shiny Sheep on

      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.


    49. Justin Adair on

      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.
