Huh... So they are selling unfinished games during the summer sale?

I've been away from PC gaming for well over a year now, and apparently it is now a thing for Steam to sell games in "Early Alpha?"

I almost just bought an unfinished game through the summer sale. What is up with this? Doesn't anyone else find this a little odd? I'm glad I made myself read the full description before buying, instead of just watching the videos.

With what little time I have to devote to gaming these days, I certainly am not going to be spending it with something that hasn't even entered its Beta phase.

Oh, and I'll buy an early access game when pigs fly.

How did you "almost" buy it? There's a huge warning indicating it's early access.

Nobody cares stop being one of the guys who says this. All of the Early Access games on Steam that are actually going to amount to something are fully playable in the stages they are in.

Your sale isn't going to tip them in one direction or the other on the success scale, they're all doing fairly well on there own.

You're preordering it. You get access to the demo version which s actually the full alpha version of the game for a reduced price.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.
