Hi 13 months after the official release date, there will be a purely digital version, but someone else pointed out that a lot of people would buy a $5 digital version over a $40 experience, which would be a bit of a shame. But the physical version will be "retired" at the end of its run, a...

Ooh, mailing lists. Publishers love that stuff, and it'd be a great way to tell people if/when we were making another story in the same system.
