INSIDE Developer Teams Up with Sex Doll Company for Collector’s Edition

Well, this is an interesting development. Fans of indie games have probably heard of the adventure platformer INSIDE, which originally released in 2016. It appears as though the game’s developer, Playdead, has teamed up with some… interesting partners for the game’s Collector’s Edition.

One of the companies Playdead is teaming up with is iam8bit, a company that makes video game-related merchandise and collectibles. iam8bit announced on Twitter today (March 6) that they are teaming up with Playdead and Realdoll for the physical Collector’s Edition of INSIDE. For those unfamiliar with Realdoll, they are a sex toy company known mostly for their life-like sex dolls. Needless to say, this team-up is pretty confusing. It makes sense for a game like Gal Gun: Double Peace to have a Deluxe Edition that includes physical panties, but why on earth would a game like INSIDE necessitate teaming up with a sex doll company for a Collector’s Edition?

This Collector’s Edition’s store page doesn’t exactly clear up any confusion. Apparently, the Collector’s Edition comes with a physical copy of INSIDE for PS4, Steam codes for both INSIDE and Playdead’s other game LIMBO, as well as “Other Stuff.” Yeah, the official store page just says “Other Stuff.” The Collector’s Edition is set at a price point of $375, which also has to make fans wonder. The INSIDE/LIMBO Double Pack normally retails for $30 for PS4, so theoretically the “Other Stuff” you’re getting with the Collector’s Edition is probably valued at about $345. Since Realdoll’s sex dolls typically go for thousands of dollars, it’s probably unlikely that one of those would be included in the Collector’s Edition. Realdoll does also make plenty of sex toys and accessories for prices closer to $345 though, so… I guess we’ll see. Pre-orders for this Collector’s Edition begin this Thursday, March 8.
