Posted by Helmgast AB (Creator)

For believing and making this dream come true. We had never dreamt of such a great turn-out for a niche, edgy, controversial, horror RPG from 1991. It is amazing! Thanks everyone, from the bottom of our hearts! 

We are really eager to finish the game in English so you all can play it, tell us your terrifying epic stories, and help us expand on the captivating KULT world, setting, and mythos. 

Helmgast has a product line-up planned for years to come, with over a dozen products. Flesh, gore, blood, and beauty. The poetic grotesque. The sublime violence.



Kickstarter usually starts charging your cards within a day after campaign ending. It's likely that some banks in the USA might refuse the payment. Kickstarter uses Stripe to process payments and sometimes US banks see this as a strange foreign transaction. 

You can prevent this by contacting your bank early and let them know to expect a Stripe payment request. 

If there is a problem with the payment Kickstarter will email you and let you know. You just need to tell your bank that it's a legitimate payment and then hopefully it should go through. We will also see failed transactions at our end and will email to see how we can help. 

If your payment isn’t authorized within a week, Kickstarter will cancel your Pledge. We will try to help you as much as possible to make sure this doesn’t happen.


In a couple of weeks we'll invite you to a Pledge Manager website. This will have the pledge you chose and the total spent. You then go through and select all the Add-On's you wanted. You can change your mind on what you picked, change your Pledge, upgrade it, and pay for Shipping. You'll be able to pay by Credit Card or PayPal for any extra's.

      Have the invites gone out, yet? (Just want to know if I should be checking my spam box)

      @Helmgast AB Cool. Thanks for letting us know!

      @David - Invites will come early May as it looks now.

      Should we be expecting the BackerKit invites to go out this week?

      @Creator I totally understand - good call to launch with the translated material. I'm still impatient - but I'll manage :P

    6. Helmgast AB Creator on

      @Even - Forums will come online in late spring. We want to launch together with translated materials available, so the community immediately has the chance to "dig in".

      The KULT forum could be launched now. Any news regarding that? At least a swedish version on the Helmgast site? It shouldn't be too much trouble, and I would love to discuss KULT with fellow backers in a more streamlined interface.

      Me and my group are all ready to playtest, just let me know when I can start! ;)

      Perfect I was hoping I would be able to add some money after the fact because after next Wednesday I can add all the add-ons that I want

      I'd love to get involved in playtesting - as someone who only got into RPGs in 2004, and subsequently had to spend time trying to get hold of English copies of this game through eBay, etc, I'd love to be able to help!

      Great! I'm ready for playtesting. :-)

      Don't underestimate the power and determination of Kultists! B-)

      Looks like Christmas will include some rather morbid reading this year!

      (And the art in general - I can't seem to find any names for illustrators on the campaign page? :( )
