Limited Run Games is having an upcoming release with new stock on old, retro classics.
If you’ve never heard of them, they’re a company that specializes in getting licenses from other companies and re-releasing their games in physical editions. They have a nice collection of indie games and other titles that serve a unique niche of the video game market.
As their name implies, they release their games in limited runs, so you can only buy them once and have to wait until they unlock their “vault” again (if they ever do).
This could be considered a marketing strategy, but their games are truly limited. Once they’re stocked, they sell out and they don’t just come back next month. It could be a very, very long time before you see the same game coming out again.
If you have any titles from the publisher you’ve been watching, today will be your best chance to get them during their sale. They announced that the retailer will begin its 2018 Blowout Sale which started today at 10 AM ET. They’re offering many of their older stock from past releases right now.
Our 2018 Blowout Sale is tomorrow at 10 am EST! We'll be selling a wide selection of stock from past releases (leftovers from earlier sales that were held back in case we needed them).

This will be leftover games from earlier sales that were held back for previous possible orders to ensure they have enough stock.
Limited Run Games is also powering a Nintendo Switch Blind Box release, which features “common,” “uncommon,” and “rare” games bundled with a Switch. This is a nice collectors crate for anyone who may be into indie games and looking for a Switch.
If you’re a sucker for indie physical games, you should definitely check out their sales before they vanish once again.
