I am lamenting another game confined to download only. Seems to be happening very frequently now.

I would say digital versions are the rule nowdays and the retail versions the exception.At least may they be DRM free.

Yes very sad for those of us that collect boxes that digital downloads seem to be becoming the rule rather than the exception.

I think that this is happening for 2 reasons:

1) The smaller indie developers can't afford publishers and retail versions.

2) The Germans (Daedalic, King Art Games), may have diffculties in finding english publishers, so in order to have the english version out in time, they publish a digital version.

If you take a look at the german Amazon (Amazon.de) you will realise that ANY (and I mean any) Adventure game gets a german retail version, even the crappiest one, including the non german-origin games! Not to mention the special editions, anniversary editions, game collections and so on.Germany is at the moment the land of Adventure gaming and the land of the Retail versions.

I think you are correct on both reasons.

At this this time Germany does have all the publishers and the US has fewer and fewer publishers and distributers. Thankfully some of the games that are published in English are being sold in UK stores so we are able to get those.
