Makes the “funded in 1 hour” banners look slow.

If Eagle Games sees this here: Could you please add "Switzerland" as a country to the pledgle level for the german version? Some of us are actually speaking german

Is there a good reason why the prices of add-on games are so expensive in this campaign?

Escape Plan KSed for $79, but adding it to this campaign is $140

Vinhos Deluxe also KSed for $79, adding it here is $110

I'd planned on rounding out my Vital collection, but not at these prices.

I favor Euros, but I like pretty much all games.

Those are the MSRPs for those games, and the price you’ll find them mostly anywhere. There are slightly cheaper versions of most that come without the KS upgrades.

Where can I find shipping costs? It tells me to see below, but I dont see a chart. United States, KS for reference.

Bottom of page. Shipping prices usually get revised later.

@Carter No Mal was correct even if his statement was unclear - the pledge level for On Mars + Escape Plan is $229, which is the equivalent of paying an additional $140 to add Escape Plan.

@Mal - I'm in the same boat... I somehow missed word of the original Escape Plan KS and was planning on picking it up here to round out my collection (already have Lisboa and The Gallerist), but I had expected/hoped it would be at least a little bit discounted below MSRP to do so through the campaign. Probably going to have to hold off now and just get On Mars. Super excited about this one though.

I had planned on getting Escape Plan also, but that price is ridiculous compared to the KS price. I understand charging more than the campaign backers, but that amount is just unreasonable.

Instead, I have gone all-in on Anachrony since I've been really wanting the base game anyway.

Sorry Mal and thanks Jay. I should have fact checked that. I’ve removed my inaccurate comment. Have a nice day.

The campaign in which a game funds will be the cheapest we will be offering the game. From there, each game will go to its msrp with a small discount applied at various times. We are no longer discounting games during the 90 period after fulfillment has completed nor are the Lacerda games entering general distribution any longer. The cost to produce them is just too high for distribution.
