It just sickens me that devs can create a base game and get some money off of it and completely abandoning the project afterwards with no refunds.

If only these unfinished games were clearly marked as such.

Oh wait.

Don't like, don't buy.

If you buy it, don't play it, then it's a preorder.

NOTHING is forcing you to buy them.

If you preorder a game, you expect to get it a completed game on a certain target: early access gives you no guarantee when or if you will get it. If you preorder and the game doesn't come out you will get your refund and the offending developers get punished\fired whatever.

Early Access? LOLZ WE HAVE YOUR MONEY SUXKERS HAHAHA. no one get punished and the dumbass fans who funded defend it to death like lemmings.

Early access is a scam.
