Back in August of last year, Ryan Brown of Super Rare Games turned a passion project into reality with the release of Super Rare Mixtape Vol. 1, one of the best and most innovative ideas we’ve seen in a long time. Following on from the massive success of the first volume, Ryan is back again to announce the eagerly anticipated Super Rare Mixtape Vol. 2!
Vol. 2 is dedicated to my dad, who sadly passed away before he saw Vol. 1 in the flesh. Thanks for introducing me to PetWings as a kid – it’s wild to finally give it a physical release.
Super Rare Mixtape Vol. 2 – a curated physical compilation of 30 games + 6 demos from the grassroots indie game scene.
Only 2,000 copies will be available for sale for Windows PC, which will go live on February 24th at 6pm GMT (10am PT/1pm ET) – available worldwide exclusively at superraregames.com
Super Rare Mixtape features
30 games – a personally curated selection of 30 games from small indie developers, chosen for maximum variety of genres and art styles
Including puzzle-platformers, a forgotten 90s shmup, a classic point-and-click with full voice acting, a PS1-style horror platformer, an RSPCA funded farming sim, a wholesome 3D adventure, a claymation style puzzler, and many, many more. Mixtapes are showcases of pure originality and creativity, giving indies the attention and preservation they deserve
6 demos – harking back to the golden days of PS1/PS2 demo discs, we’ve included a handful of demos for exciting upcoming commercial indie games that you may or may not have heard of
USB tape cassette – your mixtape of games are fittingly featured on a USB shaped like a tape cassette, complete with a built-in custom launcher for easy plug ‘n’ play use on any Windows PC or laptop
Collector’s box – a gorgeous slim box, designed to fit in with your games collection, also includes a full-colour manual with a full page dedicated to each of the 36 titles and a description on why they were hand chosen them for this collection
Bonus features – a new addition for Vol. 2, dive into the history of these hidden gems with concept art galleries and developer audio commentaries, helping preserve the stories behind these games that would otherwise have been lost to time
2,000 copies* – to check if there is an audience for this uniquely new idea, only 2,000 copies will ever be available. Vol. 1 sold out in 5 hours last August, which we’re hoping wasn’t a fluke! Stock is here now and ready to ship.
(*2,100 copies have been printed in total as additional units were needed for the many developer samples)
