The team behind Sand Sailor indie studio has announced that their new game Black the Fall is now available for download on Steam Early Access. The game will be available for a limited time with a 20% discount offer.
Launched in early 2014 as a prototype, the game went on to receive great appreciation among the gaming community. After a successful Greenlight process the game is now present among Steam Early Access titles.
Steam Early Access is a system Valve introduced which allows game studios to sell their games before they are officially released. Once a customer buys an early access game, they gets access to the current state of the product and they receive for free all updates or content which is going to be released in the future. The team intends to use the Steam Early Access to build a strong community around their game. They plan to involve each person that buys a copy in the development of the game by exchanging feedback and ideas.
“The Early Access path will bring us together with you, the actual gamers, and your invaluable feedback. The game will grow organically as we exchange ideas and I’m sure that we will end up with a more polished game and a stronger experience for everyone.” the game producer, Cristian Diaconescu, has declared.
Sand Sailor Studio hopes that the copies they sell through the Early Access system will help them fund the further development of the game and the optimization for the console version.
