      Has the backer survey been sent out yet? I haven't received it, and so am a little concerned.

      When does the backer survey come out?

    3. Fria Ligan 13-time creator on August 14, 2017

      @TheVenomRex: Yep, like Alexis says! :)

      @TheVenomRex probably like the PDFs. Another few weeks.

      Has the backer survey gone out yet?
      and if not, when should we be expecting to look for it?

    6. Fria Ligan 13-time creator on August 5, 2017

      @Drew: It will be another few weeks.

    7. Fria Ligan 13-time creator on August 5, 2017

      @Steve Irwin: Sorry to hear it! If it doesn't work out, you'll get a second chance to make a late pledge during the pledge manager in a few weeks.

      Are the .pdf's of this and other older "Loop" kickstarters due to be sent out soon?

    9. Brushforhire on August 3, 2017

      My bank charge me a $.50 fee for international charges, lol. I still can't use my card in certain states though, without notifying them first. I was actually surprised this went through.

      Adam Webb on August 2, 2017

      @Steve - Having a charge suddenly show up in a foreign currency is probably the culprit. I had similar issues with one of my cards, but another went through w/out issues. I'd contact customer service for whoever issues your card.

      Alexis on August 1, 2017

      @Steve Are you sure it's not an issue with the currency or something? I haven't had any issue with this kickstarter personally :-/

    12. Steve Irwin on August 1, 2017

      So what's the deal? Kickstarter keeps telling me there's a problem processing my pledge. My card is good. I use it regularly, including other kickstarters, but this one has a problem with it. No issues with the bank either. I even used a different card and I still keep getting the problem processing message. I've either paid for this 6 times or I'm not getting it at all. Either way, I'm done.

    13. Fria Ligan 13-time creator on July 28, 2017

      @Jessica Roberts: No problem, we will work this out in the backer survey!

      Hi! I need to change the name that will show as a "backer" in the book (I made my pledge for my boss but my name seems to be showing). Is there anyone I can speak to about that? Thanks for you time.

    15. Sebastian D. on July 28, 2017


      Ok, thanks! I have the RPG book. I just thought for a moment I might have missed a third (or fourth, if we count the new one) art book.

      Greaaat !!! Can't wait to get it !

    19. Lev on July 27, 2017


      Now to see how realistic the Dec 17 projection is ;)

      Will be happy with the book whenever it comes, but having it for the holidays will be amazing!

    20. Allan Mendes on July 27, 2017

      Congratulations for the new book! I'm hoping to see it as soon it's ready, there is a slot at the side of the othe two =).

      Thank you all!!!

      @Björn Kristhammar: Det sker i den kommande backer-enkäten.

    23. Fria Ligan 13-time creator on July 27, 2017

      @Raoul: No, the posters are the ones shown in the graphics in the Addons section.

      FANTASTIC campaign! Congratulations you guys. Feels great to support my favourite artist.

    26. Sebastian D. on July 27, 2017

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

    27. tk on July 27, 2017

      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!!

    28. Craig Addy on July 27, 2017

      Great news! Looking forward to seeing the finished book ���

      @Chris Bjuland and Bryce Frits: We should be able to work this out during the backer survey. Stay tuned!

    35. Bryce Frits on July 27, 2017

      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

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

      Mycket bra jobb Simon Stålenhag. Ännu en bok med magiska bilder :) Kan knappt vänta på att få veta mer om ditt nästa projekt. Hoppas fler bilder kommer gå att köpa i efterhand från The Electric State :)

      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.

    43. Gustav Dahlström on July 27, 2017

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

    44. Gustav Dahlström on July 27, 2017

      @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.

    45. Fria Ligan 13-time creator on July 27, 2017

      @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.

      Deximer on July 27, 2017

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

    47. Fria Ligan 13-time creator on July 27, 2017

      @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. :)

      Steve Hersey on July 27, 2017

      @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 ;-)

    49. Uberking on July 27, 2017

      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..
