Just another game about a time-traveling detective who deflects knives by spitting bubblegum at them as they fly through the air at full speed. Yep, just another game...

But I guess Game of the Year Edition sounds a lot better than Dead Island Game—that was okay but needed to be patched a ton of times to work right, but we promise it works now, we swear it does, oh and there's DLC added too, please buy this—Edition. I went ahead and made the box art for them:
