In this Fast, Panthaa gives a big rant about Early Access. According to him, the very essence of the idea no longer exists, we have only kept its semantic version: early access.
Panthaa shares her feelings with us in this Fast. He gives his opinion on Early Access which is no longer at all what it used to be. In its early days, it allowed developers to build and finish a video game with the help of its fans. The studio gave the opportunity to play during the creation phase of the game and to give feedback. Panthaa expresses regret that early access has become marketing. It relies on the games being finished by the time of their “advanced” release. Players have to pay more just to access it in advance. Panthaa implies that this system is problematic. If you want to see all of his arguments, feel free to watch the Fast above.
