Valve Offering Earth: Year 2066 Refunds

A Steam Community announcement announces that Valve is offering refunds for those who have paid for Early Access to Earth: Year 2066, citing dishonesty in how the game was marketed. Gamasutra notes that this Reddit thread has been a campaign to inspire scrutiny of how this game is being presented. Here's Valve's explanation of what happened:

On Steam, developers make their own decisions about promotion, features, pricing and publication. However, Steam does require honesty from developers in the marketing of their games.

We have removed Earth: Year 2066 from Early Access on Steam. Customers who purchased the game will be able to get a refund on the store page until Monday May 19th.
