Shipping Fees & VAT Estimates
Our fulfillment center provided the following rough estimates for shipping, noting that it’s difficult to lock them down. The low end would be the lowest expected for shipping a single hardcover while the top end would be the highest expected for shipping the box set. They also noted with shipping being so volatile now and fulfillment happening a year from now that no prices can be guaranteed, hence the range.
The provided numbers were in USD, which would be charged in Yen in the Pledge Manager. Current USD->Yen numbers have been provided below.
US $7 - $16 (￥798 - ￥1825)
EU/UK $20 - $35 (￥2281 - ￥3994)
Canada $20 - $35 (￥2281 - ￥3994)
Australia $25 - $40 (￥2852 - ￥4563)
Asia $25 - $40 (￥2852 - ￥4563)
All Other Countries $30 - $50 (￥3422 - ￥5704)
Shipping fees do not include VAT. If they apply to your region, you will be charged those fees in the pledge manager.

Estimated Deliver - Why 2023?
Expected delivery of the full printed books and box set to your doorstep is April 2023. We expect to complete the game in under a year, though there is a massive amount of art to make for the project. Also with global shipping as it currently is, our printer has given very long expected wait times on the arrival of both the printing proofs and final printed products, so we wanted to give a very conservative estimate on completion here.
As content for the game is finished, we plan to release it digitally to backers so they can also help playtest it and give feedback if they want to. This means there will be a slow drip of content from the end of this campaign all the way to when the campaign finishes, released digitally. So when a new titan, settlement map, detailed biome, and so on is finished, it will go up for backers to check out.
Finally, backers will receive the PDFs as soon as they are finished. When we first send them off to get printed proofs, the PDFs will be delivered out to backers. Even more likely, a first look at them to help catch mistakes missed by the editors will happen a month or so before the proofs are sent off.

What is BackerKit?
BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!
The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.
How does BackerKit work?
After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.
I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?
The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.
Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.
To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.
How do I update my shipping address?
BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.
When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?
That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.
I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?
As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.
