I can't remember if the Kickstarter had a physical boxed option (?) but is there any plans or discussions for doing physical sales after release?
Will Little Orbit be doing physical sales?

Yeah, we are sorting this out, we had always planned to do a special run for those that got the Boxed copies through the Kickstarter. I know that we are talking about physical copies, but that is a LO call.
The challenge for us in the brick and morter space is that our competition for shelf space is Red Dead, COD, BF5, Last of us 2, just major releases, so we have little chance of getting limited shelf space.
That is ok though as 80% of games sold these days are digital only.
So, long story short, we will figure out how to do that, whether it is a one off special edition or we do it through LO.

Many of those "boxed" games are misleading, the disk only contains an install program, not the actual game files. The first thing it needs to do is download the content from the web. Boxed games from Valve for example (not surprising), but I do have their pretty boxes on my shelf.
There are times you strive for greatness, to reach lofty goals and accomplish
noble deeds. Then there’s the rest of the times you just want to blow stuff up.

I guess I should have rephrased the question. Since Little Orbit is the publisher I imagine they have some degree of control over the publishing rights?
As an independent studio you could sell physical copies to interested parties.
I don't mean selling in stores. Since you are producing a boxed version, you will already have the template in place to produce the items.
If there is enough interest it could be possible to produce additional copies and sell them for people that didn't back to that level.
But if LO doesn't allow that, I can understand..
