Limited Run Games June Lineup Includes Broken Age Release Date and New Titles like Home
June is full of some Limited Run Games goodness as Broken Age gets a physical release date and Deemo, Home, and Night Trap taunt us from the horizon.
Limited Run Games is looking to have quite the month with a bunch of hotly anticipated physical titles in the pipeline. The biggest news is that Double Fine’s huge Kickstarter success, Broken Age, is releasing on June 9th at 10am EST. It will be coming to both the PS4 and PS Vita for $29.99 USD respectively. The batch sizes for both systems will be 4500 copies and given the popularity of the game, that won’t last long.
On that same day (and time) the rhythm game Deemo: The Last Recital will also be launching. This will mark the first time that the title will be available in physical cases outside of Asia. It will only be available for the Vita (as it originally was released in Japan for Sony’s handheld) for $24.99 USD. The stock size for this game will be the usual 4500 copies.
As for the gameplay itself, you basically play touchscreen piano as notes fly down at you. This is obviously to make a magical sapling grow in order to help the main character return to the trapdoor in the sky that she fell through. Obviously.

Limited Run has also announced a new title to be joining their ever growing list of publishing deals, and that is the pixelated horror game, Home. Developed by fellow Canadian Benjamin Rivers, the story follows a man who finds himself awake in an unfamiliar room in an unfamiliar manor. The narrative of each playthrough changes ever so subtly based on the player’s actions throughout the adventure. While no release date or price have been given for Home, it will be available for the PS4 and Vita.

And much to my disappointment, there still isn’t any news on a potential launch date or window for that bit of 90’s ridiculousness, Night Trap. However, Limited Run did unveil that they would be pairing certain copies of the horror FMV game with a 7″ vinyl that contains the infamous theme song. If this is anything like the retro OST that were paired with Risk of Rain, it means that they’ll be a small batch in high demand.
Most interesting of all, a poll appeared on the publisher’s official twitter that asked if people would like to see a streaming press event for bigger titles. 80% of followers said yes and the whole thing might be hinting at large announcements on the horizon. E3 is right around the corner after all.
But honestly, what could be more important than Night Trap? Fine, a lot of things. But I still want that game in my hands and you can’t take that away from me!
