GOG Launches Own Early Access ‘Games in Development’

Ever since 2014, Warsaw-based digital distributor, GOG.com has been keen to offer a service in the same vein as Steam’s Early Access, and has recently introduced its new Games in Development section. Similarly to Steam’s Early Access, customers will be able to purchase games that are still in the works, and help shape the final product.

GOG has assured that they will only be “hand-picking only the games [they] can truly stand behind”, with any purchased game permitting a no-questions-asked refund. The scheme will launch with five five games already previously available on Steam’s version of the program: Starbound, Ashes of Singularity, Projct Zomboid, Terratech and The Curious Expedition.

Players will also be able to manually control updates made to their purchased games, and with the use of a ‘rollback’ feature, you’ll be able to restore previous versions of the game, should updates go awry. “For games in development” said GOG managing director Piotr Karwowski, “rollback will also track and create historical snapshots throughout a game’s development. That means you can always revisit any point in a game’s history — for fun, or for science.”

The five games seeing the launch of GOG’s new venture have received a discount of between 15 and 40 percent, lasting until February 2. The retailer has released a FAQ containing more information.

Charlie is a platforming romantic from England, that still speaks in a fashion that died with the Elizabethan era. Having been gaming since the days of Crash Bandicoot, he champions the Playstation, and is only a little bit embarassed that Super Mario Land keeps spelling his defeat.
