You may have noticed that things have been rather slow recently after a very busy July and August. There is a reason to this - we had a large slate of games scheduled for this month and next, but had to roll them into the future. In late August, the ESRB announced a new industry-wide initiative to offer lower value-priced ratings for physical releases. It is now required by all three platform-holders to have physical games rated by the ESRB. We’re hard at work on getting our upcoming slate rated properly and expect our next physical PlayStation 4 releases to hit on October 13th. These will be our first games to feature ratings printed on the packaging and all games going forward will be rated.
All other US based publishers will be held to the same standard. Unrated physical releases are no more. Thank you for understanding and we’ll see you tomorrow for an October release announcement.
We are excited to announce we will be teaming up with DotEmu to bring you Windjammers!
There will be a collector's edition and a standard version for Vita and PS4!
Here is snippet:
[RR] Do you think the digital industry is hurting the gaming world?
[LRG] I think it is only in the sense that it is hurting physical games. When digital games get de-listed and there is no physical game it hurts from a preservation standpoint.
[RR] I see. So some games may get lost in time. I mean if a digital game is exclusive to a system only with no hard copies then it dies with the system. Is that correct?
[LRG] That is correct. It can only exist as a pirated version and a lot of people, myself included don’t want to mod their systems.
[RR] How do you feel about console emulation? Just curious.
[LRG] Not a fan really. Everything always feels way more unstable than the real deal.
[RR] When did you guys realize that you were only going to press a limited number of games? Clearly, the name is limited run games but was that always the plan?
[LRG] We realize the best way for us to stay in business was to have a limited stock. If we kept everything open we would have to order thousands of extra copies that may never sell and go out of business.
[RR] Great business model. And it looks like you guys are going full bore. Do you guys have a cap for how many games you want to release each month? I see those numbers have been rising.
[LRG] Our goal is only 2-4 games max a month. We are currently at a point where we had signed a bunch of games previously that are all ready at the same time…
[RR] Exactly how many games has your company published?
[LRG] We are at 75 games currently.
[RR] Wow. What do you think you’ll be at by Year’s End?
[LRG] Definitely over 100!
