Default Availability of boxed edition after Kickstarter/on release

Hi!

I spotted this game a fair while back, and almost forgot about it until today, when I came across it again (luckily!). I took a look at the Kickstarter program, and noticed at least $100 is required to any form of a boxed edition. Will boxed editions still be available on release, irrespective of the Kickstarter stuff?

If not, I'll probably pledge the $100 thing from Kickstarter to ensure myself the boxed copy.

Thanks,
JT

Ah, I see...so basically, we've got to pay $100 for a boxed edition? I'll probably take some time to decide whether I want to spend that money :S haha

After I made my post, I came across a quote that said Crate themselves said that finding a partner to roll out boxed versions down the track is a 'possibility'? Or has that been completely ruled out =/

Yep You'll just get it in a box lol but if you live outside of US and Canada you'll have to pay an extra $10 though.

Okay thanks. I think i'll hang on to that possibility and just pledge for a digital version for now. I've been spending a bit too much recently to afford $100 on something that's one and a half years away :S.

No problem. This quote might be useful.

We're not sure if we'll offer the boxed version after Kickstarter ends. We may partner with a publisher at some point to get a boxed version into retail stores but I can't really say for certain.

Ah nice, thanks for doing my job for me Asgard

Just to reaffirm though, we really have no idea what will happen as far as a boxed version after KS. There is that possibility though that we could partner with a distributor to get a box in retail.

If I can't get into the kickstarter program in time (which I may not be able to) will I be able to order the boxed edition (that comes with a physical disc) in the future ?
