Thanks to feedback from the community, Retro-Bit Publishing developed a simple and groundbreaking method to provide gamers a new option in owning a game while continuing to support the developers with their new Digical concept. Digical combines aspects of both DIGItal and physiCAL releases. Each Digical release includes the game ROM and exclusive digital content packed in a character-themed USB® stick along with a display case that really stands out in any collection! This gives customers a chance to play the game while foregoing all the extras included in a physical release.
What you get in the Digical is yours to keep - there is no DRM and no servers to ping. This is your game to own, collect, and play as you wish in addition to all the digital items included on the drive. With Alwa’s Awakening: The 8-Bit Edition Digical release, there is hope that this concept can be embraced by the community so that more classics can be released in the future using this format.
INCLUDED IN THE DIGICAL RELEASE
A special release like this, no matter how small, deserves a special box. Each Digical release also carries its own production number, just like a certificate of authenticity.
Taking the form of the Zoe sprite from the game, this USB® stick comes loaded with the game file as well as a few extras!
The full version of this game is in a small ROM file for you to play and own! No DRM or hidden files here. It is compatible with most of the popular emulator programs out there.
