Nice to see a limited edition of the game with a physical copy.

I've already tried to search for the Limited Edition in North American stores, but I guess it's not available (yet?). I know a guy from the USA who wants to have the Limited Edition for PS4, he decided to purchase it here.
But I guess you want the PC version?
YesAsia offers delivery to the USA & Canada, but the offer looks kinda suspicious and the release date is set to 31.03 (?!).

If it was OK for you to buy the game in Europe, you'd have a lot of options (e.g. Amazon).

Alternatively, you can try to win it in GreenManGaming's contest.

Are you doing a press spokesperson for gloomywood or what? how come you're always so well-informed about these things.

Polaris: "And what is a guitar doing in the middle of an asteroïd anyway?"
sgk: Think of it this way: it's like a message in a bottle. In our world, we put a message inside a bottle to protect it while it travels through the oceans to reach some other island. In other worlds, they put a message inside an asteroid to protect it while it travels through space to reach some other planet. In this case it is a gift, a guitar, rather than just a message.

Good. I want the voxel editor as well, is it for limited edition/beta acess users only? I ordered a regular download.

Yup, it only for those who participated in the crowdfunding campaign on Ulule.

On steam it says it will be released on March 10th: http://store.steampowered.com/app/435100/

I laugh at the concept of physical copies! But can't wait to play the game on steam

That's right. There are two release dates: March 10th for the digital version and March 17th for the physical Collector's Edition.

Looks like a GOG release is out of the question due to publisher & DRM policies they have, even though this was pretty much promised during the crowdfunding stage. This also most likely means there will be no release for any other OS than Windows. Unfortunate turn of events. It's not a big deal for me but I can imagine there are some pissed backers out there.

Personally I'm looking forward to this release a lot regardless, what I experienced in the beta was lovely and I'm sure that charm will be present in the full game.

Yeah. Sadly, that's the price of having a publisher.

There are indeed. It's enough to take a look at Reddit or 2Dark Steam forum.

Actually I want the PS4 version. But I'm waiting to get in in North America. Will cost less for sure.

If you participated in the Ulule campain, it's very likely that you have already received a Steam key for 2Dark, so check your mailboxes.

Btw. I love their effort and attention to putting on a good soundtrack to the game. I've seen a video of the orchestra recording it at a beautiful studio and that made me smile, I just love seeing the backstage of things.

I played a bit of the very first level with children before work this morning. Thus far I'm loving it.

Just finished the first level.

So far it's a good game, maybe a bit weird to get used to the controls. The added risk of having the kids with you really makes the experience more intense.
