The Penny Arcade Kickstarter has concluded and the final total is $528,144 or enough to remove front page advertising from the site. The project was launched as an alternative for the site as a means to support themselves other than merchandise sales and advertising .

While the front page leaderboard and banner advertising will be removed, ads on other parts of the site will remain as the goal of $1 million was not reached. Other goals unlocked by the amount raised was a six page strip of something they’re calling Automata: Silverside, Jerry Holkins will cosplay as a character of the community’s choice (by vote) for one day at both PAX East 2013 and PAX Prime 2013, and Penny Arcade: The Series Season 4 will be called “Strip Search” and be a reality show looking for the next big web-comic.
