Pretty cool, but still no sign of the DLC... Sadly...

Wow, this looks awesome!

But limited to 3000 copies and early access for 64-bit backers...? Oh well, this makes me nervous! I really really want that edition but at this rate I'm wondering if waiting for the countdown to end and clicking the "buy" button asap is even enough to get one. I'm not even at home on Friday, so I'll have slower internet.

If there's a 64-bit backer here that is not interested in purchasing the CE, I'd be very happy for your early acess link/code/however they are going to handle that. :)

That's fair to backers, I guess....

My assumption was wrong - I just was checking out the Limited Run Games Twitter feed, and saw that the discount code for all backers (except original 64-Bit Edition backers) will ONLY be for the standard edition. (I will go edit my original post so it's correct). The discount will be 10% off. Here are the Twitter links if anyone wants to read for themselves:

It says that the normal non backer price is $249.99. Is that correct?!

No, the normal price for the non-collectors edition without backer discount is $49.99. The Collectors edition (which they now seem to be calling the Classic Edition) is priced at $74.99. I'm not seeing anything set at $249.99, but there is a $219.99 September 7th Mega-Bundle, if that's what you're referring to?

Speaking of backer discount, has anyone gotten theirs yet? I assume it's some kind of coupon code? Is it supposed to be sent as an email or appear in backertkit or something?

Got my code. Gave me the link to the game.

Took a screen shot but no idea how to show it.

I guess mine just hasn't been emailed yet then. Oh well, won't matter anyways if I manage to order the Collectors edition.

Limited Run Games is emailing 64-bit edition backers and higher with a link to the "Backer Edition" collector's edition of the game and a unique promo code that significantly reduces the cost of said collector's edition to those backers. The Backer Edition CE won't be released to the public until Sept. 10th at Midnight EST, giving those backers a chance to preorder their copy first (if they so desire). The list price for the Backer Edition CE is $249.99, reduced to just $34.99 with the unique promo code sent to backers of the 64-bit edition tier and higher.

Source: Myself, as a 64-bit editon backer who received just such an email.

So I'm not going mad. Yet.

That's a HUGE discount. And glad us backers get first dibs. Is the coloured cart for backers only, or will non backers get a shot at it too?

Is there a 64 bit or above backer that is not planning to purchase the backer edition? Contact me by private message and we can arrange something...

Wow, the 'Switch Limited Run #13: Yooka-Laylee Classic Edition' is sold out already!
Within 1 or 2 minutes, I think...

Luckily I got one! :)


Edit:
The Classic Edition's page now states:
'This item is currently sold out. More will be available later today at 6 PM Eastern Time.'

Congratulations on getting one! :)

I timed how long it took for this batch to sell out and it was about 2 minutes and 5 seconds. :o

More are coming! I think they sell 'em in batches of 500 or 1000 or something (just a guess). :)

I think they do them in two batches, but that the first batch is the biggest.
The next smaller batch will be at 6pm Eastern time which I think is 10pm Friday GMT (Greenwich Mean Time).

Well, that would mean 3000 pcs will be sold out in approx. 3 minutes or so.
That's crazy!

I'd have settled for the standard version if I had to, but I'm happy to say I was able to snag a copy of the Classic Edition! Glad the discount code worked for that one, too. It's insane how quickly that batch sold out. :shock:

Sure is! Although from what I've read on social media in the comments sections about the Limited Run Games collector's editions, it seems a lot of scalpers buy them just to put them on ebay to take advantage of people who actually wanted a copy. :(

Oh good! :)
I'm happy to see that at least some actual fans of the game were able to get collector's editions and that the scalpers didn't get them all!

It’s only 1 pc per person tho, so 1 scalper won’t be able to make 1000’s of dollars/euros out of it...
Luckily!
