Maybe someone here knows, why the Kickstarter update screenshot shows the Boxed Copy for $50, when it was $65 during Kickstarter (and still is on my pledge page)? The Digital Collector's Edition, on the other hand, is more expensive now:

I payed $80 ($65 + $15 for shipping) during kickstarter for a boxed copy, and now people that just joined can buy the same for less? I want to support the game, but I feel I'm just losing $15 here for no reason.

 

I already sent a message to Obsidian yesterday, but got no reply....

It's weird I only get the new pledges. Originally I paid per Paypal on October 9th. So, still well into the Kickstarter.

OK, so the difference between the $50 box tier and the Kickstarter-exclusive $65 tier is that the latter comes with

 

1) An extra digital copy of the game (in addition to the physical copy)

2) A Kickstarter-exclusive in-game achievement and item

 

It seems there are two sets of tiers - one for Kickstarter backers, and another for late backers. For some reason, some Kickstarter backers are being switched to the second set of tiers.

Not sure on that first point, the screenshot from the Kickstarter update clearly says:

 

You will recieve a boxed version of Pillar of Eternity, a digital download of Pillars of Eternity and some bonus goodies.

 

Now the question is which of those are wrong...

That would explain why some people (like me) aren't getting kickstarter icons after pledging, and (like I was before I asked for help) were stuck with retail. I believe, and this is a hypothosis, that anyone who had ANY paypal part to their pledge are being judged as non-kickstarter/original backers, and are getting these (inferior) "retail" pledges.

Oh, is that something we should be contacting them about? I mean, I don't particularly care either way, unless I'm actively missing out on stuff because of it. If it's just a kickstarter badge, I won't worry about it.

It is if you can't confirm your Kickstarter pledge, like C2B.

 

Any news on this?

Curious about this as well (I also backed the KS at the physical box level). Granted, the $15 difference isn't a huge problem, but it's still pretty lame if new backers are getting a better deal than those who have supported the project since the start of the Kickstarter.

What about that bug? I can't see my pledge selected when in the Select Reward screen because it's showing me the non-Kickstarter set of pledges.

The Kickstarter Tiers are only available for any non-used Kickstarter Pledges.

 

If you had a Pledge and finalized it, any additional Pledges through the Backer Portal would be using the current Tier/Price structure.

^Dude... you do realize that they've been crafting it, by hand, from the ground up, right? Like, this whole time?

 

You do also realize that most other games don't even start telling/showing-off anything until about 5 months from release, on a generally-longer production timeline?

 

"There's stuff we don't know!"

 

Yeah... it's called a process. :)


Should we not start with some Ipelagos, or at least some Greater Ipelagos, before tackling a named Arch Ipelago? 6_u

Not to be forum police or anything, but this really isn't the thread for that. This is about the boxed copy price differences.

Don't freak out about the second image from youtube, that is their blockout tool. The game levels won't be grey ;)

 

There will also be optional fill in art for the UI to make it solid. Action bar will appear when you select a character.
