Looking for something distinctly more Fallout than zombie-slaying for your PC game repertoire? You might want to take on Wasteland 2, the delectable-looking squel to Wasteland, whose beta was just made available for Kickstarter backers as of yesterday. As far as the rest of us go, there's always Steam Early Access, which the game has gone live on as well.
Back near the end of September we reported on zombie apocalypse sim State of Decay as it made its way to Steam via the Early Access Program. Now it's time for the game to graduate into the real world on November 5th, which means it's one step closer to an official release.
Hankering for some more zombie goodness? Happen to do most of your gaming on PC? Of course you do! That means you probably haven't played State of Decay. Good news -- as of today, the Undead Labs open-world zombie massacre-fest is available via Steam's Early Access program.
Peter Molyneux's Godus, often referred to as the "reinvention of the god game genre," will be available for purchase on September 13 via Steam's Early Access Program. The beta, via TechSpot, will be ready for play when users purchase at $19.99, with more features to roll out as the concrete release date approaches.
Valve found a way to include gamers in the development process of new titles.
Sure, any old Joe with enough funds can go out and purchase a finished game to play at his leisure, but you typically need to have a foot in the door with a developer to test upcoming titles before they're made available to the general public. Valve is doing its part to change that with a new "Early Access" initiative that allows Steam gamers to purchase, play, and provide feedback for select games that are still in development.
