Oh, so the Euro is just horrible to the Australian dollar. OK, just making sure :D. Well, the US dollar is kicking our collective arses right now, too. Why does everything I buy have to be imported? lol
And the markup from buying imported good via local distributors are usually much, much worse. One look at Nendoroid and Figma at an average price of AUD$100~ (and that was even back when AUD$1 = USD$0.9, not AUD$1 = USD$0.76), and I go run screaming back to AmiAmi/Nippon-Yasan/Solaris/etc.

Casually?

Maybe I wasn't conveying my point clearly enough, but I was complaining that imported goods via local distributors are so ridiculously marked up (AUD$100~ each for Nendoroid/Figma that are still only AUD$50~ each imported, including combined postage when split between 2-or-more figures) that I'd rather just import directly... Even with the value of the Australian dollar down the gutter.

... At least we still don't have ridiculous import tax, for goods under AUD$1,000... Yet...

Amiami's good for deals - they steal much of my money via figures. I do buy some things local, though, because I like to support places like [email protected] just for trying to cater to us, even if the environment means they have to charge more to be profitable.

Anyway, back on topic, Desertfox just did an interview in regards to this, if people are interested in checking that out - http://vnsnow.com/2015/04/vns-now-talks-to-war-girl-games-about-their-new-kickstarter-my-little-dictator/

I agree with all of the things Fox stated. Proper communication and good budgeting are the keys to success, after something like a Kickstarter, and Fox has done a wonderful job with both.

I have a board game...that is supposed to be like an anime/VN...but it fails miserably....

I'm back from a brief holiday and the project is currently at £1,249.00!

Things tend to slow down in the middle of a campaign so I'm not too worried at this stage, but I'm continuing to answer interviews and put out press releases, so slowly the game is getting more coverage.
