To bring indie games to store shelves!
Wow, that feels great to say. This has been in the works for quite some time and it’s pretty surreal to finally be talking about it.
You may have heard of GameStop’s GameTrust initiative, which has funded and published games like Song of the Deep by Insomniac Games and the upcoming Deformers by Ready at Dawn. As part of the initiative, they’ve also approached IndieBox to bring great indie games to their stores.
It is with that in mind that we proudly present the GameTrust Collection, a series of Collector’s Edition SteelBooks that celebrate some of the most innovative indie developers around.
Starting with these ten games:
- Nuclear Throne
- Rogue Legacy
- Axiom Verge
- Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition
- Punch Club
- Jotun: Valhalla Edition
- Stories: The Path of Destinies
- Thomas Was Alone
Each game will be available for $19.99 and includes:
- An exclusive SteelBook case
- Full-color instruction manual
- DRM-free game disc
- Soundtrack CD
- Mini art print with Steam key
All ten box sets will be available this November in select GameStop stores and at GameStop.com.
When we started IndieBox in 2014, our objective was to give the classic PC box treatment to awesome indie titles. It’s hard to imagine finding a better way to Bring Back the Box than by putting the best indie games on actual store shelves. This is a dream come true for our team, for the developers we’re working with, and hopefully for you all as well.
We’ve seen several questions about this already.
Here are answers to a few of the common questions:
Are these spoilers for future subscriber IndieBoxes?
Nope! Some of these are games that we’ve worked with in the past, but that doesn’t mean that the rest of the list is our upcoming lineup.
Clearly we’re fans of all ten of these games, and we may feature some of them as Collector’s Editions to subscribers in the future, but for now the games we have on the horizon for our subscription service do not include any of the titles in this list.
(Plus – keep in mind, we have some specific requirements and considerations for our subscription service, so not all of them are even eligible at the moment.)
What do you mean by “select stores?” Will they be hard to find?
We’ll be shipping to about 1,200 GameStop locations. Since this run is going to be extremely limited, we’d recommend preordering them at your local GameStop store or at GameStop.com.
Can I buy these outside of the US?
The GameTrust Collection will only be in GameStop stores and online for the U.S. only.
When will they be available?
The release is currently scheduled for mid November.
Don’t want to wait for your local GameStop?
Preorder your copies now while they’re still available.
