No, it is NOT indicative of the route price. The price is still being finalized, but the price of the Rewards tiers includes other perks like beta access, the physical rewards and the OST. The final price of the routes will definitely not be beyond other otome routes.
It is our understanding that you should have bonuses for investing in us. We do not see the tiers as only early access. We think you deserve exclusive rights to things you won't be able to get anywhere else for some time.
If you are not interested in any other reward besides the digital routes, we ask that you understand that all funding is going directly into the project - our team is currently not taking pay. Think of any extra funding you give as your way of personally helping MD: SOA reach higher levels of quality!
