Does anyone know when this game will be available through general retail? I'm really looking forward to it, and I wasn't able to go to Essen.

I'm wondering if Game Salute is going to run a Kickstarter to bring it stateside.

The game will be available in Europe within the next few days. Where are you located?

I'm in the USA. Probably should have mentioned that!

Since it's not clear when this will come out in the USA, I ordered a copy from Philibert, in France:

Total cost, with shipping, was $64.50 USD. It was very well packaged, and it showed up really fast -- I ordered it last Thursday, and it arrived today (in upstate NY).

Although interestingly the Kickstarter is by R&D Games this time with fulfillment by Ship Naked (Game Salute).

Looks like it's limited to 1500 copies.

Didn't they say that on another KS that turned out not to be true tho? I want to say it was Inhabit The Earth.

But note that it's talking about "the first print run", so it seems like if it does well it will be printed again.

Heh, you've never seen CMON's kickstarters... (imagine 1000 people frantically pressing "refresh" as they throw $200,000 at the KS in less than five minutes)

Nah, they put a fake funding amount so the percentage on KS tracking sites shows a huge percentage to attract more people.

Hmm, so they're straight-up using Kickstarter as an ordering platform, since the game copies already exist. I'm glad it's being made available, though. But $59 after shipping? Doesn't make me feel so bad for paying $5.50 more and having my copy already

I only had to imagine three backers to surpass this funding goal.
