    At least early access games are honest about it, unlike the rest of the industry.

      this. It's your fault if you get impatient and willingly purchase an unfinished product that they tell you upfront is unfinished.

      all the early access games I played so far (Phasmophobia, Valheim, Barotrauma) had more content and less glitches than AAA games

    I wouldn't even post my game on Steam unless it was complete. Indie devs especially seem to fall into this trap, and then you just have this game on steam that's in perpetual development and it looks very unprofessional.

    I tend to not buy or download games with the "Early Access" shame banner on their steam page.

        Why do you space you sentences like that? It makes your post more difficult to read.
        You are making yourself look foolish though. Not by outing your post as your own, but by overemphasizing the point it reads as something ridiculous, even though it's only common sense.
        That said, not everyone has that option. Some people need more funds, and so they try to display what they are working towards.
        It's free advertising if you do it correctly, and it's very upsetting if you mislead your audience or try to scam money Etc.

    But why finish when they can retail it and make money on early access and then if the game actually becomes successful they get to release the completed game again down the line but as an Ultimate or GOTY edition for double the price even though its actually just the base promise finally releasing.

      However, it is basically a finished game already. The dev just has an autistic principle of not declaring the game finished until he is not going to update it again.

      Yeah. At the same time, respecting your customer goes a long way. Charging them for an incomplete and/or shitty product can't be excused by "making the product takes time and money." I mean it can, but that's gay so don't do that.

        Nobody is forcing you to buy the game that's clearly labeled as a work in progress. You are being offered a chance to purchase a functional build and have that purchase carry over to the final product, usually at a lower cost too. There's no 'disrespect' here.

    I've bought exactly 3 early access games and I regret all of them.
    If they are good, devs take forever to finish it, so by the time they are done adding shit I'm already jaded of the game.
    On the other hand, they may never get good, and I get fucked in the ass.

          Is your promise here making you happier or more well off? There is something to be said for standing to your principles, but if it doesn't bring you any benefit then why keep to it?
          I could tell myself that I should hit myself in the nuts every time I hear the tune of yankee doodle dandy, if I kept to my word that wouldn't exactly be of much use.
          Like, in these two cases - what about them being in Early Access do you think will specifically ruin the experience for you?

            Yes. I'd rather not pay for a game that is unfinished, so I don't and I'm ok with that. No skin off my back.

            >what about them being in Early Access do you think will specifically ruin the experience for you?
            Them being unfinished or seemingly abandoned. Super Indie Karts feels almost abandoned, but I keep it on my wish list just in case it's not and it comes out. BeamNG.drive is simply unfinished. From what I understand, the feature I really want, career mode, is far from finished and any progress made is likely to be lost in future updates. I can happily wait on both of these games since I have a plethora of other games to play. Most of the time I forget it exists until I look at my wish list.

    I wish there was a way to frame your game as not early access. Like don't be deliberately misleading, but also don't get lumped in with blatantly unfinished tech demos that also have the "early access" title. Maybe have like 2 hours of a game, upload it to steam or whatever, but don't call it "early access" and don't charge for it. Have it be as polished as you can, then continue adding to the game in the form of 2-hour content addition updates. Then call it 1.0 or whatever when you got the whole game on there and start charging for it.

    Idk it helps to advertise your game by uploading it early, but I don't want the "Early Access" stigma that comes with shit like the unfinished and unpolished tech demos you see on steam lol

    The way I understand it, Early access is basically an alpha or beta testing which raises a question for me isn't it considered to be a part of testers's job to do it, so why do they make people pay for it or don't provide people with a free access to it if they want feedback from the users?

    The whole thing is sketchy and I don't understand people who are willingly engage in it.

    • 3 weeks ago

      That's my understanding of it. The idea is actually supposed to be something more like, "oh this game isn't finished yet, but if you like what we got so far and you're a fan then you can help support this awesome project so that we can see it through to completion!" But in reality yes it's just beta testing that the beta testers have to pay for.

    I just don’t get how devs can take 2 years to get to the point they release it in early access at “almost done” stage and then do nothing for years on end. What the fuck do people at their offices even do?
