Sails of Glory Kickstarter has new pledge levels for international backers

The Sails of Glory campaign on Kickstarter enters in its homestretch with good news for international backers and other people resident outside the US who want to support the project. Ares Games announced three new pledge levels to offer a solution to mitigate the high costs of international shipping, with the publisher absorbing a higher portion of the freight cost.

At the new levels Worldwide Lieutenant and Worldwide Captain, backers are asked to commit to a certain minimum amount (US$ 40) of options, freely chosen between those shipping with the main rewards; and, in turn, Ares Games absorb almost completely the shipping cost (bringing it down to only US$ 20). The benefits have also been extended to the Commodore level, creating the Worldwide Commodore level, which includes a proportionately higher minimum amount of options, at US$ 80.

Started on March 5th, the Sails of Glory campaign on Kickstarter had its funding goal of US$ 30,000 reached in less than 9 hours, and will end on April 16th. Currently, the project is 650% funded, with more than 850 backers and almost US$ 200,000 pledged.
