Digital-only games Volume and Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee New 'N Tasty are hitting retail, thanks to Limited Run Games — but, as the company's name suggests, once these physical copies are sold out, that's it.
The company will print boxed versions of Volume on PlayStation Vita and Oddworld on both Vita and PlayStation 4. Each game's developer revealed the news on their Twitter accounts, although release dates have not been announced.

Oddworld's limited edition print on PS4 will come with all available downloadable content, according to Oddworld Inhabitants.

The games join indies Saturday Morning RPG and Breach and Clear amidst the Limited Run Games roster. Both games were limited to no more than 2,500 copies per platform; the company sold out of all 1,500 copies of Breach and Clear on Vita less than three hours after it went on sale last October.
Sealed physical copies of the rare Vita game, which first hit iOS in 2013, now sell on eBay for upward of $110; that's a significant increase over its original $24.99 price tag.
Collectors should keep an eye out for when Volume and Oddworld go on sale. As Limited Run makes clear on its website, once the games sell out, the company won't reprint them.
