Shipping is also free to Norway and Switzerland.
The link being posted in the main page comments was the 'The Pocket God™ Update Song'.
Great update music! )
Of course, I am now wondering what the fan-based update music was.... I can't seem to find it, anywhere.
I have to repeat the questions of Magne Karlsen and moorkh. Are european non-eu countries (Norway, Switzerland) supposed to pledge extra for shipping? EU is not the same as Europe, after all.
I happy you plan to port the game to Linux as well.
Since porting to a new os is never an easy task, don't hesitate to ask to the Linux community for advises. I found a presentation from Nvidia et Valve about porting games to Linux. Maybe you could have a look at their advises. (link where you can find the presentation: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php…)
ah forget it, you have to switch to US, sorry, should have read the whole paragraph, lol...so excited ;)
doesn't work with the shipping, it says "you're outside US you have to add 12 bucks for shipping" and it doesn't let you continue...
Please add the $40 Dragon Commander option to the add-ons list on the KS front page.
@Jack Hepburn Raine
They already did so. ;)
@David Isaac Frohman
If you don't mind a silver jetpack (rather than gold from the retail version of the anthology) there was a Chinese New Year DLC promo offer early last year. The webpage is still up, so you can try submitting your email address to get in on the deal.
U guys could update the pics of the tiers that's what most projects do.
Pip-boy from Fallout 3 at the table. So they also likes Fallout. :-)
You need to make it that the picture at the bottom of your most recent update is a link to the Facebook page like
Swen you are so mean to poor Jan! :) Putting a writer in front of a camera. He did a great job though, I am so looking forward to seeing all the extra lore that can be put in the nooks and crannies of your world.
Keep up the good work! And keep the info bits coming. We will hit the 1M mark yet.
Removing the shipping cost doesn't make me lower my pledge... It makes me upping it: I was doubtful about a 95 pledge because of the shipping increment... but now I'll improve my pledge...
I'll be expecting an $18 more awesome game ;-)
I wasn't planning on reducing my pledge by anything, shipping or no, but I'm curious: There's a small country in the middle of Europe that you'll be shipping a lot of packages around and probably even through to get them to the other side of it. Are you indeed going to ask the full worldwide shipping costs to deliver to Switzerland?
The shelter sounds like a wonderfully whacky idea...
Anybody else get a "Douglas Adams had a long dark tea time with Terry Pratchett" vibe from this?
Hmmm, I paid for shipping to Belgium... but what the heck, keep it. It'll be that little step closer to the stretch goals.
Ah, I must have read over that. Thanks. :)
I think what you propose is described in the update: "Of course, you'll need a bit of space to make the transition, so make sure your enemies are not too close when seeking shelter..."
I agree. There should be an initiative chance for enemies to hinder you from fleeing or at least hit you one more time. Automatic "riskless" fleeing would be too easy.
I also agree that a tap of a button to flee a fight is a bit too easy. At the very least you should need to lose a turn (Concentrating to open the portal or whatever) before escaping.
Maybe you need to use the "Flee" option, which I think (once implemented) requires you to reach a certain distance away. Maybe when you're in flee mode, your action points can only be used for movement, nothing else.
Yes, you can. :)
I either placed the 2000th like on facebook or 2001st
Dragon Commander as Addon rise my pledge.
But one question i have, i the Dragon Commander Version multilingual?
You know, I didn't really care about the stronghold before now, but the 'Transcript of Unravelled Destinies' and the changing appearance actually make it sound pretty interesting. I like the concept picture as well, and I'm very pleased to hear that the 'persuasion' options will have proper dialogue lines rather than just keywords (and of course about the free EU shipping!)
The only thing I'm a bit disappointed about is the lack of any real story information in the new video. I understand the need to avoid spoilers, but is there really nothing you could tell us about the plot without spoiling the entire game? Other than that, though, love the update.
The Transcript of Unravelled Destinies will certainly add to the immersion of the game. I always liked journals that recorded historical events and consequences in games.
Thanks also for the EU shipping! I hope Greece will still be part of the EU by the time the game is released :D
I have a question though: If I have already put those 18$ for shipping can I use those as part of an add-on instead of removing them?
Removing the shipping cost doesn't make me lower my pledge, it makes me upping it :)
What kind of shipping deal do you have?
Great update as usual Larian!
Keep up the good work!!! :D
Can we get the jetpack if we preorder Dragon commander through the Kickstarter?
Looking good! :-)
Re: Coffers with no bottoms
It's all well and good that they are safe from your partner, but are they safe from the Eurocrats and bankers too? They are much greater threats than Zixzax. ;)
Dragon commander for $40. Oh, alright then! :) I feel bad about adjusting my pledge downwards thanks to EU postage, so maybe I'll add some addons instead,
Awesome update guys. Love everything about this game. Can't wait until we get to play. :)
Cool for the shipping in EU. I just upgraded to a physical reward ^^
I spy with my little eye, a Fallout 3 wobblehead! :D
The shelter sounds really great. I'm looking forward to make myself a home there. And the Transcript of Unravelled Destinies is a really cool idea, I like it very much! :)
The story teaser was a bit too short imo. Would it be possible to write down at least what Jan said in the video?
Seems I misread. Instructions were correct : select option you live in the US...
@arkerus: I agree with Arkeus: the quick retreat opnion needs some or limitation or some interesting repercussion. Otherwise it's like a chaet.
Aside form that, great stuff guys. Keep up the good work!
I just tried your instructions to remove the sending fees through kickstarter as I'm living in EU.
It's not working as kickstarter is still asking to add 18$ for sending outside US.
In fact you have to declare you want the physical good to be sent to USA, so you can remove the sending fees...
I just added that piece of information to the update - 8 minutes left and then I can't change anything anymore ;)
If you don't say you're shipping within US, Kickstarter refuses you to set that you're shipping outside US. You actually have to have the extra $18 added.
Waiting for Italian distribution and translation! By the way... how can you handle the necessary addition of 12/18$ on the base price that can't be removed from the tiers?
The only way to remove shipping when you're outside US, is to change your shipping details to say that you're actually shipping within US. I hope you're aware of that.
What are your thoughts on having an option to remove entirely the '(charisma)' or '(intimidate)', et cetera, at the end of the conversation choices and letting the phrases stand by the strength of their writing? I think it might make the game a little more interesting, but I'm not sure if it wouldn't also detract at times...I think it may be fun, though, overall.
@Rob: We have agreements in place for the price on Dragon Commander with various distributors and we cannot undercut them. We also think it's good value for money. The 65$ limited tier really was an exception.
We are pledging for a particular game (original sin). It's already a very surprising decision to have the 65 bracket, i don't think they can, financially and to their producers, excuse giving more of a price to it as a "add-on".
Also, the 'rewards' are their to make us feel good about pledging, we ARE supposed to pay a lot more than it's actual worth
It would be nice to have a timeline with the events of the precious games in the divinity universe for those who have not played the previous games.
