This is the official thread for U.S. or U.S. compatible, physical releases of games that are primarily digitally distributed.  Here is the criteria for this forum:

1. A relatively small physical print run.  These are usually only available at one or a few retailers.  In many cases, the physical version is only available in one or two regions (often Europe or Asia) but have translated menu options.  A few publishers such as Soedesco, Rising Star, and Nighthawk Interactive are specializing in these, but copies can still be tough to track down as the release channels are limited and they don't get much press.

2. A game that *seems* to not be widely known (unless you dwell in forums such as this Wink  ).  For example, No Man's Sky may be primarily digital but the physical version is very well advertised and mostly available, so it wouldn't fit in this list.  The point of this thread is alerting gamers of lesser known physical variants, especially ones that are released much later than their digital releases.

3. Of course this can be a loose and subjective set of criteria, but the idea is that we're not looking for a game that has a stack of copies at your local GameStop or Walmart.  We're looking for that game that you'd find one of, pick up, and say, "I had no idea this had a physical copy."  Except, many on this list would never appear at a big retailer at all, and if they do, it really is only one or two copies.

This is an experiment, and will take some practice to get right, so feel free to add games, suggestions, and anything constructive.  I'll be editing the first page as we go.  Imports were found at Play-Asia unless otherwise noted, Soedesco games are often only found at Amazon for us in the U.S.

Limited Run Games aren't listed due to their extreme unavailability, although if folks want we can post those separately.

I know of Half-Genie, is Pirate's Curse getting a physical release?  I know that Axiom Verge got an Indiebox release, is that the only one?  And what platforms did Armikrog get a physical?  I think Ducktales and Shovel Knight had decent print runs, but I'll add them.

Also Nintendo is set to publish Indie games at retail starting with SteamWorld collection and Fast Racing Neo.

Thanks guys, updated accordingly.  I haven't seen a listing yet confirming Fast Racing Neo, but I'll add it when it pops up somewhere (and reserve it accordingly Wink

And no worries, DT.  I add everything I can when it actually releases.  Several of these are only reserve-able as of now.  (got 4 in the queue Smiley )
