RE: Physical Box

Do anyone even use CDs anymore? Even DVDs are pretty much out. If it were to be released as a physical copy, I would expect it to only contain some base files and then use an online downloader to fetch the game itself.

RE: Physical Box

I use CD's to backup my PS1 games. Some amazing stuff right there. Only problem is I am starting to find it harder to find them, since I think the whole "VHS" ending support is coming about soon.

Well yeah, there's no way SOMA would fit on a CD, but I don't think many games nowadays use CDs anymore. I'm pretty sure that most retail PC games have made the switch to DVDs.

That makes the current installation size just a bit over the single disc limit, although if the game were streamlined a bit, perhaps with a bit more aggressive compression and trimming of assets that are used once or less, I bet it would be possible to fit the game onto a single double-layered DVD.
There is a lot of unused dialogue and other stuff in SOMA, deleting that might help.
I'm not really sure.

I actually got a PEGI version done, I just wasn't on long enough yesterday to upload it to Imgur and put it on this thread. Hope I did it correctly. (;

I also did a couple of other edits to fix some errors I didn't notice before.
