Not sure if there are any other EU Backers of this project, but this info I got from Derek might be interesting for you:
It will be shipped from Germany to Europeans. We plan on shipping in a pallet for EU distribution. This means we will likely be absorbing the import tax but this avoids taxing the individual. We should probably have this clearly stated on the page as there are many in Europe that may be avoiding pledges due to this issue.
I think this will be a great game. First one I ever pledged for on Kickstarter :-)
