There is a bevy of companies operating right now that specialize in physical game releases for otherwise digital-only indie gems. One such group is Super Rare Games, who regularly dish out impressive physical versions of sleeper video game hits. They put out a new physical release for indie games from all corners of the scene every three to four weeks. While a few of their releases fall on the particularly obscure side of gaming, their latest collector’s bundle brings a pretty iconic game series into the world of physical gaming – the Steamworld series. Super Rare Games has put out a physical collection of Steamworld Dig 1, Steamworld Dig 2, and Steamworld Heist that is absolutely packed with goodies fans are sure to enjoy.
While Steamworld Heist and the Steamworld Dig set are available as individual standard physical releases, Super Rare Games also put together a sleek double-pack that brings all three games together in a collectible cardboard sleeve. You’ll get a physical case and cartridge for Steamworld Heist, and another case and cartridge that holds both Steamworld Dig titles. Both these physical editions are packed with all the neat little bonuses you’d expect out of a loving physical release. There’s reversible art on the inside cover for both games, as well as included mini-booklets full of illustrations and sketches from the games.
Another fun pack-in that comes with the physical release of these games is the collectible card pack bundled in for each title. These card packs contain three different collectible cards featuring characters, scenes or equipment from their respective games. A few other indie physical releases or collector’s edition video game titles include a single collectible card, so getting a stack of multiple unique cards like this is an absolute treat.
There’s a lot to love in this physical collection from Super Rare Games. The Steamworld games are an absolute delight, so having physical versions of those to adorn your shelves is enough of a treat. The extras of this release, though, really add up. Having both Steamworld Dig titles on a single cartridge is super convenient, although I wish the packaging reflected both games more instead of mostly focusing on the first. The bonus goodies like the collectible cards, too, show that this is far more than a standard physical release. A few copies of Steamworld Heist, as well as their latest release Chroma Squad, are still available now on the official Super Rare Games website.
