      I really hope this game will get Linux support and UE 4 for Linux isn't going to be the trainwreck that UE 3 was. Valve, come and save the day!

      Looks like the word is getting out! Do you have any interviews/media releases planned? I am sure with such a well known studio name and all the support you have already received you can get all the big gaming sites and magazines to give you an interview. People love your studio and your games.

      I know it's early, but I'd like to talk about import taxes. Most countries have import laws where, if you import any item produced outside of that country's economic borders, you need to pay additional import taxes or/and sales taxes. (For example, in the Netherlands, items marked as gifts and items valued under ~$25 are excluded. Between that and €150, additional sales taxes of 21% has to be paid, and above that, an additional 4.2% in import taxes.) Have you made any plans on how the items will be shipped, and whether for example European backers will have their products shipped from within Europe (so we don't have to fear unexpected taxes and risk having the item destroyed when we're unable to afford it)? If you haven't thought about this yet, now might be a good time to bring it up. It'd be good to have something like this clarified sooner, rather than later. (Note to others, this isn't about the shipping cost, at all. It is a completely separate issue. Refer to your own country's laws and such for details on importing items. For example, for others from the Netherlands, is a useful resource.) Thanks!
