Early Access on Steam gives us the opportunity to buy games before they’re even finished, but more importantly they allow us to take an intimate look into how games are created.
Before Steam began selling games as Early Access, Notch set the standard by selling Minecraft in early alpha, to a huge success. Now this idea of selling games before they're complete has blossomed into it's own and more and more developers are using it to their advantage.
Buying something that’s a work in progress may be risky business, but in my video above I discuss why it's a good thing and how it opens us all up to the creative, evolving process of making video games.
