In recent times (due in part to technological allowances), many games have been getting 'digital only' releases. The positive is that this gives smaller game studios the opportunity to distribute their games to a wider market, without the financial risk of manufacturing actual, physical games.
We at PixelCrib, have always loved having our own, physical (tangible) video games which we can hold, keep, lend or trade with others. There's something delightful about unwrapping a brand new game, and displaying it in your game cupboard - that a digital release will never be able to provide.
As such, we have been working hard with a selection of specialty video game publishers who share this same passion. In the upcoming months, we will be bringing you guys many more physical versions of some truly awesome games which had only previously existed in digital form.
Hope you guys like this goal, and if you do, please keep those orders coming in so we can continue to bring you more and more of these games :)
This is our latest arrival, published by Hard Copy Games.
Explore the ruins of humanity in this mesmerising underwater action-adventure. Discover thriving wildlife, encounter monstrous beasts, and let curiosity guide you through an inevitable voyage of extinction.
In terms of gameplay, this is one of the best Metroidvania experiences you could have. It understands the best facets of the genre, combines it with stunning artwork as you explore labyrinths and upgrades you as you progress to increasingly fierce boss fights.
This game is for the PlayStation 4, Region Free and Limited to 1,500 copies.
Another recent arrival and nominee from the gamer's choice awards (Indie Game Fan Favourite 2018). Raccoons have taken over Donut County with remote-controlled trash-stealing holes. You play as BK, a hole-driving raccoon who swallows up his friends and their homes to earn ridiculous prizes.
Capcom & iam8bit have collaborated together to bring us this landmark project - in celebration of the 30th birthday of everyone's favourite Blue Bomber by bringing us on a trip down memory lane to relive the love affair with a classic franchise which helped shape and define action platform gaming.
