People ask how they can support Penny Arcade in a way that doesn't involve shirts or looking at ads, and we think we've found a way.

      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)

      Andy - no worries, you haven't been forgotten about. We're still on track to deliver the rewards per the schedule on the pledges on the righthand side, and for the larger donors such as yourself we'll be reaching out individually as opposed to via surveys. Thanks!

      Hey, I pledged $2150 and sent an email about multiple rewards (PAX and t-shirt/everything else) as specified in Update #3, but I haven't gotten any email about anything but PAX. Did I slip through the cracks somewhere?

      Hey, Charles - all of the surveys for the "large volume" rewards have been sent out, and we'll be reaching out individually to those reward winners that are smaller volume. As far as fulfillment, we are still pretty much on track for the estimated delivery dates for each of the rewards. Thanks!

      Any update you can give us on the surveys and reward fulfillment?

      Any word on when the surveys or whatever you guys use to get in contact with us are due?

      Just don't harm/traumatize the duck, please.
      Tycho should name the duck, too. The duck is playing a key support role, after all.
      Maybe just name it after the people Gabe has to think about... it will be a long name, but an honorable one.

      - 8452 names for Gabe to shout while chasing a duck.
      Common names like "Steve" "Bob" should make it shorter, unless they have to shout full names.
      - 5911 backers for Gabe to think about during sex.
      He can just think about us as a collective whole, "all those people that donated over $15 dollars"
      - 4763 pets for Tycho to name.
      He just gives them all the same name, or uses a random pet name generator, problem solved.

      <3 PA. I wish I had enough money to fund the whole reward tree myself. Someday, guys. Someday.

      Are you sure you guys have time for Automata after all of that?

      Will the duck shouting be livestreamed?

    15. Maxx Mittelstadt on

      I'm looking forwards to the Automata comic I was hoping for more ever since. I even bought the Automata t-shirt when it was first released.

    16. Wind Lane on

      Look Outs was the main goal I was hoping would be reached - though second was the full million for all ads gone.

      So happy to hear we're getting it even though we fell a bit short. Really looking forward to what this kind of thing will open up for PA in the future!

      But when does the duck-shouting start?

      As Toby, this has been my very first support on Kickstarter, had to do it for Penny Arcade (even if it was with a little cash :) ).

      Way to go!

    21. Wayne Sung on

      Very cool, was hoping for more Lookouts! Thanks, Mike!
      And Jerry, looking forward to your juicy debut. ;p

      It's been an honor to help those you've been with me for years. This is the only time I've ever supported penny-arcade with a purchase but after following you for over 10 yrs i felt it was time to return the favor. I love you Penny-arcade you sweet sons of bitches.
