    The stretch goal store has a barn home on sale that includes an "exclusive" title, visionary.

    The add on store is selling a signed box of the game that includes the same "exclusive" title, visionary.

    Can someone at Port please let us know what you mean when you say "exclusive" ?

    Thanks Sean. In broad terms, I know what the word means.
    Synonyms like "sole, unshared , unique" included in your definition do not fit the manner that Port is using the word.

    It might help if Port specified which group these items were being restricted or limited to.
    For instance, "The visionary title will be exclusive to those who purchase the barn OR the signed box." This would indicate that only way to acquire this title is through purchase of one these items. Otherwise, this descriptor is at least meaningless and at worst misleading.

    This message is exclusively for all people.

    Understood @Verit. I believe the noun description qualifies for what they do. Just IMHO of course.

    noun
    1. 1.
      an item or story published or broadcast by only one source.
      synonyms: scoop, exposé, special
      "a six-page exclusive"
    I would say exclusive because only they make it, only available thru add-on store and only available while supplies last or X amount of time.

    Yet they use it as an adjective describing the noun title.

    The barn home and the signed box additionally containing the Episode 2 Early Access. The title comes from Episode 2 Early Access Add-On.

    I think it's just a flashy adjective.

    Exactly. Any items in the store that have Episode 2 early access give the Visionary title.

    Did Port ever say this ?

    Is this an assumption based on what is currently in the store?

    If this is the case, they should state: "exclusive to purchases that include access to ep. 2".

    Otherwise, anything "exclusive" may indeed simply be exclusive to those who spend money, when they later go on the store as a stand alone purchases.

    The Ep2. Early Access was far earlier in the store as the barn stall and the signed boxes.
    Might be better they add a line: Comes with Episode 2 Early Access Add-On that includes: […]- Visionary Title[…]. So it is more clear that this is a bundle.

    Black ink signature is exclusive to the current cash shop and labelled as exclusive. Different colored signatures will be sold in the future.

    When a tv show as exclusivity on a series that mean they will be the first to pass it and they only one (for the first time). Then once thats done, all other tv channel can buy rights and show it too.
