I think is creepy enough! There is only 1 copy around and i want to give it as the final trophy for the biggest Mastema Out of Hell fan! Is there also a second figure, made for the videoclip of the theme performed by GRIM, this one is also included in the reward (is not good as the other, made with super sculpey, paper, small ropes and other materials, painted with acrylic colors.

HOW WE WILL USE RAISED MONEY
Risks and challenges
The game is 50% complete. I'm gonna finish the job even if the campaign will not be successful. In this (unlucky) event I'll need more time to complete the game and there will be no physical copies and special rewards. This campaign is the only chance to release it as a cool dvd pack and I'm sure that with your support we can easily reach the goal.
