    Kickstarter is launching 1 December & I'm certainly going to back it.

    Mr Tornado , After learning about this I'm glad I didn't support them during plague road campaign and I will NEVER support ANY of their future projects.

    "wel on kickstarter they promised people who backed x amount would be in the credits.

    yet they stopped with names somewhere around S

    So if your name starts with an T U V W X Y or Z or your in the later part of the S your name is not in the credits even though it was promissed and you actualy paid for that. "

    Apparently not through LRG this time, but rather Eastasiasoft.

    And Kickstarter is going to be the only way to acquire the Limited Edition.

    ....honestly, after what I've seen and read of Plague Road and Mecho Tales, this probably won't be a must-have game. But my collector OCD has already decided for me - of course I'll back this :):rolleyes::oops:

    Eastasiasoft have been reliable to date so that's good will wait and see what the collectors edition looks like before I make a decision.

    Hhm. That's a strange thing to happen. o_O

    Yep, I'll be backing it as well. If eastasiasoft are involved though, I guess we'll have to pay import fees as they're not DDP friendly.

    Well how about this:

    250 copies of the special Edition for each platform? I guess it's nice that they give backers of the last campaign a chance at first dibs, but it feels like a cheap way to get collectors with no self-control (like me) to help secure their funding. At least they have the decency to wait until after LRG's first batch instead of starting at or around the same time.

    Dang, I will probably miss out on it then if there's only 250 and Plague Road backers get first crack at them (understandable I guess). I got my KS copy of Plague Road through a trade though since I didn't back it.

    Yep, I got the email late last night & was chatting to them on Twitter about various things, but I must've missed where it said about first dibs to Plague Road backers. If I'm fast enough I'm hoping to secure a copy & they've confirmed that it's one per person.

    Should be getting the email at 4PM here in the UK (campaign is live at 5PM) but I'm worried that they're going to go very fast. Oh & this has just been tweeted:

    Come to think of it, maybe I was wrong about there being early access just for previous backers. Just noticed this in Arcade Distillery's tweet from a few days ago: "Subscribe to our newsletter and be the first to know when our Kickstarter campaign launches". The text I quoted above earlier was from a newsletter after all, I just don't remember signing up for it and all previous emails I received from them seemed to be Plague Road-related, so my mind jumped to that conclusion. Apologies for the confusion!

    No worries! Cool I just signed up for the newsletter. Hopefully that was whats needed. Last Real Gamer makes a damn good point in that tweet too though. I'm going to make sure and be at my desk 10 minutes until 11 (local time when it starts) so that I can F5 with a vengeance.

    I'd have thought the email with the specific link would've been sent out by now.

    Neither did I. I just opened Arcade Distillery's profile on Kickstarter (through the Plague Road campaign page) and there it was under "created projects".

    I think that 175 for vita is because they must have reserved the rest for the 'buy both' slot.

    Ah, good point! Didn't even notice that one - all I could think of was CTRL-F "captain's edition", look for the word "Vita", and punch in my pledge as quickly as possible. Backer #1 for the Vita edition here, in fact! #5 overall. Very proud of myself :D:oops:

    thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou! :)

    I didn't get the email & thought I'd better check this thread & BAM! you'd posted link. :)

    I went for the Skull Queen's Choice - both Vita & PS4.

    I take it that when the Kickstarter fully goes live in 1 hour, you can manage your pledge & add extra regular copies?

    I'd like to add another Vita vanilla & Switch vanilla.
