Limited/Indie Physical Publishers
Please note that due to the constantly changing availability and releases, I have decided to just provide links to the limited/indie publishers' sites. I encourage you all to visit their sites, see what they have, and support their continued efforts to help bring digital only games physically!
If I am missing any companies, please let me know so I can have them added.
