Also agree with this. Very much. Would love to see DF carry on with this sort of business model in the future.
Maybe, in the far distant future, this could supplant the need for Kickstarters? Just launch as a pre-sale instead.
I realize that this is just my own personal opinion, but I prefer the straightforwardness of a pre-sale like this to the drawn out theatrics of a Kickstarter. With these Pathfinder sets, I could log in, immediately see all of the offerings, determine exactly what I want, and pull the trigger. All of the pieces up from the get-go. All of the walkthrough videos up on Day 1.
Kickstarters can be fun, but I feel like I spend so much time simply waiting for the daily update, and nothing gets finalized until the end anyways.
And don’t even get me started about “FREE stretch goals!”
