I received today my desired Kickstarter Encore Personal Edition…my hype was incredible. Finally I would see the amazing artbook, signed by Madureira. 360 dollars spent just for him, for his amazing artbook.
I opened the box and checked the T-Shirt…well, not the best one but ok. Checked the print…not so amazing but ok too. The “limited” print…well, it didnt seem so limited but it was cool.
And then, I looked at the instructions manual. How strange, I didn´t know there was one, and without the game? Oh wait…oh no, it cannot be.
Yes, it was the “artbook”. A 30 page mini artbook.
Seriously, do you think we are idiots? Don´t we deserve a proper artbook for such amount of money we pledged? Really?
Check the Witcher 3 video posted before, check that artbook. Pick up a World of Warcraft CE (not the BfA one) and check the artbook included with the OST, Making of, Game, Mousepad, etc… for just 75 euros. Check any artbook you can buy for almost 25 euros with more than 200 pages.
Come on, this 360 dollar Kickstarter Encore Personal Edition is not worth more than 60 euro. I can raise it up to 100 for the “signature”.
Madureira must have more than 30 pages of sketches and drawings, so I hope that “reprint” won´t be just a resizing of that joke you called “artbook”. We deserve much more for what we pledged. I would gladly return all the goodies (and recovering my money of course) if we don´t see a proper artbook.
Edit: I forgot to mention a little detail. The signature was scratched. So…you have sent me a damaged joke artbook
