      Looking forward to playing this game, the added development time was expected and I'm just glad that the game will arrive in a foreseeable future!

      Would also like to add my concerns regarding the EU VAT situation.

    2. Alderman Jack on

      I am simply curious about the final shipping price, even if it is HIGHER than $45.

      But I can not dive into the add-ons fully without knowing the as yet unannounced details Sandy mentioned. If it costs more, I can spend less, and vice versa. My budget has limits.

    3. Gerrit on

      The $45 shipping price is fine considering the immense/insane weight and proportions of the game. Especially with expansions. Stop whining about such a good deal!

    4. Alderman Jack on

      @Sandy: Thanks!

      Any ETA on when we get the final details?
      To be clear, I wouldn't mind paying the current shipping price, but if it were to change I could start looking at the add-ons a bit more :-)

    5. magisystem on

      I know you can do it. THANKS @Sandy.
      Now i can up my pledge without robbing a Fort Knoxxx ;-)
      I'll wait until we know the final details, but it seems i can get all extensions now, instead of just my base pledge...

      By the way, we are getting close to 1 mio.!!! Seems that your distro update made for a nice boost in pledges. Time to think of new stretch goals. Since we will reach a number with 6 zeros in it, we have to celebrate big time. How about a Cthulhu on a scale of 1:1 (original size) to inflate ;-). Wouldn't that be fun to blow up?

    6. Emanuele Crivello on

      Great! So what about the 45 dollars ? I would like to increase my pledge :)

    7. Philippe Marichal on

      Yes ! That is just plain excellent news. Thank you for that Sandy and the guys

      I was not sure to up my pledge (for fear of Kafkaian Belgian Customs), but now I can safely add more good stuff.

      Great News! Thx for making this happen!

    9. Nyogtha

      Fantastic news. Depending on the specifics, this will hopefully mean I can afford to increase my pledge to the next level and maybe scoop up some of those expansions! Will be sure to spread the word.

    10. Salvador Bernadó Sala

      This is the best news this side of the portal.

    11. lehmann on

      That is excellent news. I'll remind fellow backers that part of the P&P cost is already taken by Sandy et al. And sending from inside the EU still means having to ship the actual contents to the EU and having someone distribute from tehre so if the P&P doesn't change, I'll still feel we have avoided the worst!

      damn you leave me no choice to pledge for the thing :)

      Kris Miss on

      Podziękował :) So, how about lowering the shipping cost? MYTH had a shipping cost of 13$, which was awesome and really convinced me to pledge. I'm guessing a lot of people are waiting for you to say "Yes, 15-20$ for postage dear EU" :)

    14. Stephan Reitz

      There goes my money - no reason to back out now :-(

      Fantastic!!!! That's news I've been waiting for. Thanks Sandy & co :)

      That is great news, so relieved that we won't be hit by HMRC extortionate customs & duty charges :-). Thank you for the proactive customer service, much appreciated. Now, do I need to add to my Cultes des Goules, decisions, decisions?

    17. Steven Harbron on

      That's a big weight off the wallet.
      I was expecting to get hit for about 20% (VAT & Customs) plus the "handling" charge from the Post Office.
      This plus the DVM level, a lot has changed in 12 hours.

    18. Erasmus MusicCentre on

      Aye, looking forward to hearing whether that means a cancelation of the $45 charge or not. It makes a huge difference. Well, its nearly 50% of the pledge of course.

    19. Gerrit on

      @ Rune: How about... all of them? ;)

    20. Simon Elsen on

      That was the news I wante dto hear. take my money!

    21. Rune L Meland on

      Thats the best news I could get home to!
      Now to find out which expansions I should get...

    22. Gerrit on

      Excellent news! Thank you so much, Sandy and GEG!!

    23. Jorge Barreiros on

      Thanks, I was looking forward to this.

    24. Demetrios on

      Ah, right... So the 45 is still on, but we are not paying anything further, correct? Need to do my pigeon-math! :)

    25. Pitstarter on

      OP Delivered!

      Grats guys, this is further pushing me to ditch EB2 Cultist for CDG this week.

    26. Orlando_the_Technicoloured

      Thanks so much Green Eyed Games

      Pledge dramatically increased, Yipee!

    27. eWave on

      Thank you for coming through for your EU pledgers :)

    28. Mark Horneff

      Thank you so much, that is so awesome

    29. Peter "araziel" Cruickshanks

      Yeah, practically it's VAT-free for EU backers. That's ~25%ish off the price.

      Norway isn't EU though. Yay for us :P

    30. Tom D.B. on

      Won't be free p&p. But we won't get those huge import taxes. :D
      Great news!

    31. Ironclad (Mick) on

      Is that free P&P now then? This is important as at $45 it could be potentialy an expansion added to each pledge. :)

    32. Yoshikuni Takebe Heras

      Wonderful! :D

    33. Jérôme Lagatie on

      Fantastic news ! Thank you !

      Excellent news - I heard you, Sandy, asking about it in the recent podcast, thank you for the follow up.

    35. Beast on

      Everythings coming up roses tonight

    36. Demetrios on

      This is great news!!! Thank you! Will that theoretically reduce the P&P costs as well?

    37. Lagoon on

      Thank you very much Sandy! Now I can stretch my pledge till the last saved penny!

    38. Fred C on

      Merci Sandy, c'est une excellente nouvelle, i just pledge for DVM ))

      Im not EU, But I am very happy for our EU backers, that saves them a ton of money. (Which hopefully will go to more pledges) 1 Million+ here we come!

    46. Michael Moore

      Okay, EU. Time to put your money where your mouth is. ;)
