Paypal Gives Indie Devs Their Money Back

Illustration for article titled Paypal Gives Indie Devs Their Money Back

Yesterday, we told you how Paypal were keeping half the money raised by an indie game until the game had been finished. Even though...the devs needed that money to finish the game. Today, somebody at Paypal has woken up on planet Earth and done the smart thing.


Less than 24 hours after sending the initial notice to Yatagarasu: Attack on Cataclysm's developers Nyu Media, PayPal's ‘Office of Executive Escalations’ have "have all reserve funds and removed all reserve settings from our account."


This means the team, who raised $118,000, can now get back to work completing a fighting game project that's been six years in the making. And which, I might add, looks damn fine.

They gave up the money to get rid of the problem, not because they felt they did the wrong thing.
