Super Rare Games has announced the Super Rare Mixtape Vol. 2, a collection of 30 games and 6 demos all wrapped up in one neat package -- and there will only be 2,000 copies available.
The Super Rare Mixtape series is a passion project from Super Rare Games' Ryan Brown, and that's not all that the company has going on; it recently announced that it was expanding into publishing games. As the name implies, the Super Rare Mixtape packages dozens of games together into a physical USB drive that is stylized to look like an audio cassette.
The first edition of the Super Rare Mixtape sold out in just 5 hours. Now, a second version has been announced -- the Super Rare Mixtape Vol. 2 will be going live later this month.
The Super Rare Mixtape Vol. 2, Explained
The Super Rare Mixtape Vol. 2 from Super Rare Games includes a curated selection of 30 games and 6 demos from a wide variety of genres and styles. Notably, the developers do not give up any of their rights when they're included in the project; its aim is to highlight these indie games in an interesting way.
As you may know, Super Rare Games specializes in physical products -- and Volume 2 of its Super Rare Mixtape project is no exception. All of the games are loaded onto a USB drive stylized to look like an audio cassette. Naturally, everything will be packed up in a neat collector's box.
Volume 2 doesn't just bring in a new set of games -- it also adds some extra goodies. This time, concept art galleries and developer audio commentaries will be included as part of the mission to preserve gaming history in a physical format.
