I didn’t know that it was only available digitally. It’s a game that I would like to own physically, but I have a digital copy of the first game so having a digital copy of the second will be fine for consistency.

I think P2 is available physically - pretty sure at least. I'm playing it off of Game Pass right now, so couldn't say 100%.

became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the
desire to be very grown up.” ― C.S. Lewis

I thought that it was available physically as well until I saw j said that he had a download code for it which I thought was odd since I know that he buys all of his games physically when given the chance, so I checked and it was only released digitally. Apparently early backers of the game get physical copies, but it’s not available to buy physically.

I'm dying to play it but I'm going to try to hold out for a physical version. It has to happen at some point, right?

Surely - a Limited Run release if nothing else (I'm pretty sure they've already put out some other Double Fine games). If I hear of anything I'll let you guys know.

Much appreciated!

I would have backed the Kickstarter if I knew about it. I supported Broken Age and never played the game.

I have Broken Age, and played a little of it a while ago. It seemed pretty good, and I plan on playing through it when I’m in the mood for a cartoonish/comedic point-and-click adventure game.

Yeah, my pledge specifically says "digital download for PS4" as I pledged like 15 months after it went live. No physical copy, but it's fine.
