Available from iam8bit, it not only includes a very nice box and cartridge/disc, but a hand-drawn town map, a “24-page retail catalogue featuring useful items and objects that a goose might enjoy collecting,” and a sticker.

There’s also a vinyl version of the game’s excellent soundtrack (note: by very occasional Kotaku contributor Dan Golding) coming, which features a “double groove, meaning every time you go to play the record the music could go one of two ways, and you can’t control it. I can’t think of a more perfect way to release a soundtrack for this devil bird.

They’ll be out soon on iam8bit.

DISCUSSION

Do people still buy physical copies of games? Is there some tactile pleasure in swapping out discs?
