The boxed edition of Untitled Goose Game (PS4 $29.99, Switch $34.99) includes the game cartridge and the following goodies: a hand-illustrated Village Map Poster (11″ x 17 “) by Australian artist and game developer Marigold Bartlett, a 24-page Plaza catalog featuring items and objects to excite any curious goose, and an official No Goose sticker.
The Lovely Edition (PS4 $34.99, Switch $39.99) includes all the above goodies, packaged with eco-friendly shrink wrap and recyclable booklet and foldout poster. The Lovely Edition is exclusive to the iam8bit store.
The vinyl soundtrack is made from recycled vinyl discs, featuring the uniquely classical, dynamic music by Dan Golding, adapted from French composer Claude Debussy. The vinyl has been built with “double groove randomness.” The music will play differently each time the needle is placed, a nod to how the dynamic music works in the game.
“We love physical games and vinyl. They’re not just cherished collectibles, but also cultural and archival artifacts,” said Amanda White and Jon Gibson, co-owners and directors of iam8bit. “We also recognize that we only have one planet, and over the last year, we’ve been diligent in developing better, eco-focused packaging and production techniques. Think of this as the ‘Alpha’ version of our ‘better for the planet’ packaging. Change doesn’t happen overnight, so we really wanted to start the conversation as a first step toward the goal of 100% eco-friendly packaging for physical games.”
The physical editions for Untitled Goose Game are launching September 29 for Switch and PlayStation 4. It’s rated E for Everyone.
