What is Gamer's Edition?
Who we are and what we do.
Gamer's Edition was set up to create awesome collector's editions for dedicated game fans. It was born of the realisation that digitally distributed indie games were taking up almost as much of our gaming time as the megabucks triple-A stuff, but they didn't have much in the way of cooler toys or accessories. It didn't seem fair that you can get a series of statues for Gears of War Judgement but nothing for Thomas Was Alone.
So, we've partnered with Idea Planet - the experts who make many of those collectibles you've seen for blockbuster games - and our favourite indie developers to plug that gap. We work with the developers and their community to come up with high-quality special editions that are as unique as the games themselves. We set a minimum production run to cover the setup costs, and we make them to order - each one is numbered, and once we've made them we'll never make another.
Because creating these packages takes quite a long time, and we spend that time talking to lots of people about merchandise ideas, we’ve started offering smaller runs of less elaborate items like art prints and T-shirts. These aren’t always made by Idea Planet, but they’re still high-quality items from established manufacturers, and we’ll always make clear what you’re getting from each.
