      There's a third one beside Tales from the Loop and Things from the Flood already?

      So, so happy for you guys. I love Simon's work with all my heart and it feels great to count my fistful of cash among the 5000+ that smashed right through those stretch goals. Good job, everybody!!

      Hello I was wanting to increase my pledge to add on a poster but was not able to do it before the Kickstarter ended. Is there a way to increase a pledge after the fact? Thank you

    20. Chris Bjuland on July 27

      I forgot to add $ for the RPG and accessories. Is that window closed?

      This Kickstarter is almost over, my first backed ever. Love your work and Simons paintings are amazing. Looking forward to back his next book. Keep up the good work.

      @Uberklang Ingen tvingar dig att köpa nått extra.

    27. Gustav Dahlström on July 27

      @Fria Ligan: I forgot to thank you and Simon for your outstanding work - as always. Snyggt jobbat!

    28. Gustav Dahlström on July 27

      @Uberklang. Relax, nobody is forcing you. If you want to buy it from their site instead, just go ahead.

      If you buy the posters as add-ons shipping is included (AFAIK). And it will probably be shipped separately. If you order it from their site within Sweden the shipping is 100 SEK extra, that is more expensive. I'll go for the add-on poster, it is a better deal. Do the math.

    29. Fria Ligan 11-time creator on July 27

      @Steve Hersey: Yes, and the fact that if we tried to compete with Amazon pricing we would undermine physical bookstores that carry our books - this we don't want to do. These are top quality artbooks and posters, and they are not cheap to produce. We simply cannot - and don't want to - compete with Amazon prices. In fact, when it comes to The Electric State, we don't yet have a plan for an international retail release, so the Kickstarter is the surest and fastest way to get the book.

      @Fria Thanks for the response, I understand completely. Looking forward to the book and poster �

    31. Fria Ligan 11-time creator on July 27

      @Deximer: 150 SEK is the price per poster, yes. These are large (70 x 100 cm) posters printed on thick, high quality paper. They are delivered rolled in a paper tube and will ship separately, incurring significant added packing and shipping costs (for us, not for you).

      @Uberking: The price of a poster in our webshop is 188 SEK. I'm not sure what prices you are referring to? The price of the artbook bundle in our webshop is 648 SEK (the 611 SEK is ex VAT) - this is slightly lower than getting them as addons here as an addon, but you would need to pay separate shipping. The price per individual book in the webshop is 378 SEK. It's simply not practical to offer a range of bundle options as Addons, this is not a webshop, after all. :)

      @Fria Ligan, sounds like the compelling reason is, "because we need to make a living, and that can't be done at Amazon's prices." "We need to eat, too" is pretty compelling ;-)

    33. Uberking on July 27

      Svarar ju fortfarande inte på varför ni tar 25:- mer för bilderna här kontra eran egna hemsida? Även varför jag skall behöva lägga ca 90:- extra för att lägga till de tidigare böckerna här. Känns som om ni lurar de som backar er..

    34. Fria Ligan 11-time creator on July 27

      @Steve Hersey and Uberking: Our recommended retail price for both previous artbooks is 378 SEK. Some large online retailers undercut this price quite a bit - this is their business model and they are free to set any price they like, but the problem is that retail stores cannot compete with Amazon prices and are thus forced out of business. We set a recommended price that we feel is the right one and we stick to it, and we do give a small discount on the books here on the kickstarter. Also, as Edvin Ullman points out, getting the books this way gives you the PDF as well at no extra cost. :)

      so what are the odds that one of art collector spots will open up? less than 1%? i guess i will keep checking. i have seen a few openings in the Drone Pilot level today.

      it is also possible that the amazon copies do not come with the 3 extra art prints that both the previous KS versions have (and that now this art book version will come with). having bought both of the art books through previous KS efforts, and having them both contain the 3 art prints, it is something worth asking Fria about. Fria, can you confirm that the art books bought here through KS will contain the 3 art prints? thanks!! :)

    38. Uberking on July 27

      Fria Ligan vakna nu! Varför dessa överpriser på kickstarter kontra eran egna hemsida!?

      @Steve Hersey:
      Not that I'm the creator here, but does the Amazon book come with the pdf as well? Otherwise I'd argue that's a pretty neat reason to get it this way. Now, personally I already own the Tales from the Loop rpg pdf, so I'll likely not go for that addon. The other two however, are both twofers.

      I own the two previous books and pledged for this one, want the pdf for book 1 and 2 answell, but 2x175 for pdfs...

      Really want the TFTL rpg cover poster, but it seems a bit crazy that its 350 for an entire art book and almost half that for a single poster. I've pledged for it, but geez.

      Also, same here to comment below, the TFTL and TFTF art books are cheaper on Amazon, but that's to be expected imo. Will probably pick them up from there.

    42. Uberking on July 27

      Why is poster prices higher at kickstart than frialigan.se 150:- and 125:- Also if I order both previous books at frialigan.se I only pay 611:- and kickstarter 700:-

      Strange! :S

      I'm interested in getting Tales From The Loop, but the Kickstarter add-on price of 350 SEK is significantly higher than Amazon's selling price of US $33.79 (~277 SEK) for the same book. Is there a compelling argument for paying the higher price for the Kickstarter add-on?

      Fria, will the prints in the Drone Pilot level also be numbered out of 50, in addition to being signed? Thanks!

      How do you order posters?

      Its 150 sek per poster, is that correct?

      'Please note that you can only order addons if you are a backer at level ROBOT RUNAWAY or above.'

    48. Aiden Coutts on July 27

      I'm still a bit confused... what level do you have to be to get all the new addons?
