Responding to this week’s furore surrounding Penny Arcade’s decision to raise money through Kickstarter, Barnden maintained that crowdfunding might be controversial, but it is here to stay. “I don’t think there should be any limitations on what Kickstarter is used for," he said. "There’s bound to be an amount of fatigue – and we saw some of that with ours to a certain extent – but we saw the success that other games had had and thought we better get in there now. I don’t think that there’s any worry about this going away, but I do think people are going to have to have a damn good pitch.”
I've got no problem with it. Yes, PA are the big boys with an established business, but so was Double Fine, inXile, and several other high-profile projects of the last few months. Those developers wanted to do something different, so does PA. It's not technically what Kickstarter is for, but Kickstarter are the ones who approve or disapprove projects, so if they say it's fine then it's fine.
