And finally (in more ways than one):
This is the limited edition of Broken Thunder. Broken Thunder is a doujin game from Japan that's based off the popular 1980s/1990s Tec(h)nosoft shoot 'em up series Thunder Force and that was the center of a clusterfuck of epic proportions because one of the makers thought he had the rights to the whole franchise while he had not. On top of that the game was partially unfinished and bug-ridden, and a patch to fix the issues was promised but never materialized. This resulted in his band breaking up, his work not being featured in subsequent Tec(h)nosoft games, and the game being pulled from retail shelves in Japan. 😵
The difference between the limited edition and the regular edition is the front cover and that the limited version includes an audio CD.
But apparently the recall wasn't executed very well because it pops up for sale now and then anyway... 😎 The trick is to get it for a decent price, so when it showed up for 100 yen buy it now I didn't know how fast I had to be to snatch it up. Only took me a few years to find it at such a price. 🤣
