A Look At June's Indie Box With Escape Goat 2

By - | Views: 7,865
The Indie Box is something we briefly covered before that allows you to subscribe to receive a new game in the post every month boxed up with a bunch of goodies. This time we actually have a box with Escape Goat 2 and with plenty of pictures for you to take a look at.

I am a big fan of this and the quality of each item is really quite something. This month the game given out is Escape Goat 2 a puzzle platformer game which I am already a big fan of, so it's icing on the cake for me.

There's really nothing like the smell of freshly opened games. Opening my Indie Box sent me back to the days of being a child and actually buying brand new games in store, only this time I get a ton of goodies and it works on my favourite operating system.

I am really surprised at the quality of it all, and the keyring especially is of excellent build quality, just look at that lovely little mouse!

The USB drive actually confused me a little until I noticed one side had a slot and... pop it spins out. Love it. The USB drive is easily the most beautiful storage device I own and I will actually be very sad if I ever lose it, just look at it!

The only issue I had is that my USB drive came blank rather than having a DRM-free copy, but the guys at The Indie Box were more than pleasant about it and gave me access to a DRM free copy within minutes of emailing them. Now that's customer service! They usually come with the Linux, Mac & Windows copies all crammed onto one USB.

Something that made me chuckle is that in the back of the full colour instruction manual, which again gave me that "new stuff smell" (love it), was a coupon key for the ShinyLoot game store for a discount. A nice little touch there and good to see them team up with another lesser known company.

If you can afford the delivery costs on it I would easily say to go for it. So, go subscribe and get some goodies!

My USB came blank as well; what a wacky oversight. I'm constructing the papercraft statue as we speak :)

Also, so excited to hear Cellar Doors is working with Indie Box to release a boxed edition of Rogue Legacy :D Mind, they said their subscription slot is booked, so it'll be sold in their store online, rather than being part of the service. However, I'll buy it all the same :)

finally registered after reading this site for a very long time

just got mine USB also blank i chucked them an email a few minutes ago(already own EG2 so i too have a spare key for a good home still cool to have a boxed copy and hopefully they will send over the USB image)

sofar the games have been awesome. my cubecraft is different(its just a goat) so looks like theres a few variations in the boxes they are shipping. Rogue legacy i also own(awesome game) but i still cant wait to get a boxed copy of that too

EDIT: very fast support a reply in under an hour and the missing files shortly after! gotta <3 these guys

At least to Europe.

Yep, I'm in Europe too (Portugal) and its a bit pricey :S .

But in June's indie box it was tagged in the shipping post office box that it costed 15$, while in the subscription we add 13$ for international shipping so maybe they are cutting they profits to make up the international users.

Also the promo codes work on the full price, (S/W included), so the early Reddit's 20% off got me a good deal. So far there was also a June 10% and a E3 15% off codes.

I had to stop my subscription 'till I have the financial security with a new job, but I'm sure loving the last games :D
