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.

Milking what? Their game's release? The people buying now don't have to buy again later, it's a pre-order... Only difference versus non-EA releases is they get to play now.

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

What? Early Access provides the following:

1) Early revenue stream so developers can finish their games without resorting to investors or publishers.
2) Free testing and feedback for the developers so the final game can be more polished and better tuned to what customers actually want.
3) Removes the need to release broken games as final when they clearly aren't final.

I don't see how any of those things is bad. There are a lot of games that would have benefit from Early Access. X: Rebirth and Sword of the Stars 2 come to mind.

The only potential downside (which has yet to be proven) is for multiplayer games. If most of the community plays the game during Early Access, it's possible that they might get burned out before the game officially releases, resulting in a smaller community at launch.
