Steam Early Access Goes Live: Now Play Games Still in Development
Twelve games available, ranging from free to paid.
Valve’s Early Access platform for Steam is finally live, and allows users to play games still in development. Of course, they will range in price from being to free to play to requiring one to pony up as much as $32.99, though pricing could change over time.
Badland Studio’s Sean Pollman, whose Kinetic Void is one of the games on offer, states, “A lot of games are already operating as ongoing services that grow and evolve with the involvement of customers and the community. Greenlight helped us raise awareness for Kinetic Void, and now Steam Early Access will let us continue the development of our game while gathering crucial feedback, input and support from the Steam Community.”
The other 11 titles on Early Access include ARMA 3, Drunken Robot Pornography, Gear Up, Gnomoria, Kenshi, Kerbal Space Program, Patterns, Prison Architect, StarForge, Under the Ocean, and 1…2…3….Kick It!
Interestingly, not only can devs garner feedback but you can also visit titles in Steam Greenlight that are cleared to arrive Steam at some point. That will be down the road, but the possibilities are still intriguing.
