Risks and challenges
This is our first Kickstarter project. We have already finished the game, but the translations may be behind schedule.
We currently have no external partner, which means that deliveries might get delayed in case we get much more backers than we expected.
We will ship the rewards with postal mail. If you prefer another shipping method, an additional fee is required.
We are making English version only at this moment, but will consider other language versions, such as German, Italian, French and Chinese depending on demand.
