I'd stay away from Steam Early Access for now, primarily because EA reviewers love tearing apart games and ruining their reputations. Once things in the alpha have smoothed out and there's a little more functionality to things like the UI/menu (and a tutorial/manual for new people) releasing on EA would work.

I'm really not a big fan of Early Access (EA) from a consumer perspective, but as a emerging developer you'd have to be crazy not to try and exploit it.

Even your good EA examples I'm not so sure of. I mean KSP seemed to be permanently in EA, I suppose it has released by now. And I understand darkest dungeon had a controversial EA development, with some people still not liking the changes.

The only EA game I really rate is Squad; the game is already really fun and they do the probably best dev posts I've seen https://joinsquad.com/#updates. They are also making a commercial multiplayer game from a multiplayer mod, so its early days squad still could somehow fail, but I do think EA can be done right.

You just need to have the basic gameplay polished and then expand the content, but this is probably easier with a FPS than less trod territory that OKAM is treading. Squad is essentially the same gameplay from an already successful mod (PR for bf2) in a new engine. I assume OKAM is very different to crpg/strategus.

Very good point. Most people will simply jump at every opportunity to shit on your hard work. Problem is, the majority of them won't return after a while or care to change their reviews after checking back on your progress. That effectively gives a title a permanent bad reputation, which is usually enough to drive people away from the store page.

30-50 euros
whoa easy there, stallion
I'd definitely preorder it, but only if there's some unique thingy for cRPG players because I want to feel special. If the publisher treats us the same as everyone else, then I'll treat the publisher the same as all other publishers.

Honestly, from the very beginning I was highly skeptical about this project. Some friends of mine know my thoughts, but I never expressed them on forums to do no harm with starting the pointless forum wars. My main suspicion was - how many things and features donkey team could carry out of those that they have announced in this topic. I mean, as an artistic person irl, I know that many of things you imagine to do when you start your project, then drop off simply because you have not enough skill/time/budget/patience to do them all. So, there is (not always) a huge difference between your initial idea, and the final result. Also, I never really liked m:bg animations. I mean, I know they were early pre-alpha and so on, but still... Anyway, right now I'm hyped as hell, and eager for any news about how the alpha test went through. So, now I'd like to see these questions to be answered 1st, untill I possibly buy it:

One word: addiction

More words: The game is like switching from coffee to meth, not a very quality meth at the moment, but the leap is huge.

I'd pre-buy oKaM if it was available again along with internal testing.  I don't want to be brand new on release day.  fooking CRPG was hard enough coming into 1-2 years after most other players.

release early access too only CRPG playersfor free, theres not that many of us left in the first place anyway  :wink:
in all seriousness tho if we just have the small community of crpg players than it wont be that early access shit that dayz turned into with the toxic steam community we all know that would fuck up the game :P

I actually paid for two copies of the game ($130/100 Euros then) with then intention of gifting the second copy to Frank the Tank. Sadly Frank left the cRPG community not long after that. Now it looks like I'll be multiaccounting my way to dominance long before EA release to the rest of the world.

I'll give you the 10-20 dollars to get into an early access Alpha and I won't refund it if I can kill people.
