Carmageddon: Reincarnation Early Access

Early access for Carmageddon: Reincarnation is now available on Steam, offering the chance to put a few thousand points on your virtual license in this recreation of the old school road rage game (thanks Dan). Here's the pitch:

We are deeply delighted to announce that Early Access for Carmageddon: Reincarnation is now available on Steam! So go forth into splattering carnage land and enjoy your first taste of Hot Carmageddon Action!

With this Early Access launch (Pre-Alpha v0.1.2.4593) comes a new update to the “Early Early Access” build previously released as an exclusive preview for our Kickstarter Backers. This will be automatically applied to your game the next time you run the Steam client.

Yes but they already had a over-successful Kickstarter. They are simply milking it with Early Access now.

Had they instead called it done, and released as is, then put out day one, two, three, four, etc patches, would that have been better?
I mean, it then would have been "finished" and patched as ongoing support as opposed to "early access" with regular updates until release.

No. I'd like to see them release the game when it's truly finished using the $625K from Kickstarter, and leave Early Access to the ones who really need it.

I think everyone is clear on my view if interested. Enjoy your discussion.

My take on it, and I might be wrong, is that most people buying it as early access would likely buy it at release anyway. At least that's how I am, as are most of my friends who go for early access.
That being the case, all early access becomes as I look at it is a means for a company to get the money sooner as opposed to later, and in the end since they're getting the money either way, the early or later becomes less relevant.
