One of the driving forces of this game is the "ZOMG I can't believe it's so inexpensive!". And buying in the US, at least, it is - $75 + $8 freight. Bargain.
The trouble with shipping to Australia/NZ from the other side of the world though is that freight is a killer. Combined with exchange rates, that turns a "$75 game" into a $AU180 game.
It looks lovely... but damn.
