Untitled Goose Game Is Getting A Box Set & Vinyl Soundtrack

This week, iam8bit along with both Panic Inc. and House House announced Untitled Goose Game will be getting a box set and a vinyl soundtrack. The game itself has been just a digital download this entire time, but now through these partnerships as well as some storefront help from Skybound Games, it will be getting a physical edition on September 29th, 2020. It'll come with a set of exclusive goodies, which you can read about below. On top of that, the vinyl soundtrack will be produced the same day, giving you all the piano vibes you need to make mischief. We have the full details below along with a quote from iam8bit about the release.

"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 co-creative 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."
