Indie games normally get released digitally, mainly because of their file size and budget the developers have. It’s just easier and more cost effective to release games on digital. However, the cool thing to do these days seems to be limited run physical games with special physical bonus items that you can’t get with a digital purchase.
The latest to hop on this craze is Thunderful Publishing and their upcoming game, SteamWorld Quest. In partnership with Super Rare Games, they’ll be releasing 7000 copies of the physical game on Nintendo Switch. Each will come with these exclusive items:
- Fully assembled Nintendo Switch game with cartridge
- Interior art
- Full-colour manual
- Exclusive sticker
- 3 card trading card pack
Pre-orders for the game open on November the 7th, exclusively at Super Rare Games Website.
