Or just forgo retail entirely.

I'd assume that's the way they go. Why bother with retail for a PC-only, old-school RPG? How much shelf space would he get at Gamestop, Walmart and Best Buy? Maybe an inch on the bottom shelf, so they can put one copy there, sideways? They'd sell 15 copies if they're lucky.

I'm pretty sure they'll just go digital download only. And Fargo especially has already said that he doesn't care about additional customers. If he gets them, great, but he's making the game for the people who put up their money, and that's all he cares about.

Which is exactly the right attitude to have, and why I think his Kickstarter may become the most successful of all of them.


Looking at how well Legend of Grimrock is doing, I don't think PC gamers give a fuck about retail anymore. Did LoG have any advertising, or was it all word of mouth?
