Radical Heights Launched

Radical Heights is now available for Windows on Steam, offering what Boss Key Productions calls X-TREME Early Access for their free-to-play battle royale shooter. They also now are selling a Radical Heights Founder's Pack with cosmetic items and in-game currency for the game, noting, "This product is not eligible for refund." Here's the trailer showing off gameplay, and here's word:
Welcome to RADICAL HEIGHTS, a free *X-TREME Early Access* BATTLE ROYALE shooter. Partake in high-stakes battle royale gunplay in a sunny SoCal dome as contestants drive-by on BMX bikes or stalk other contestants from the shadows in search for weapons and prizes...but also CASH that you can bank - win or lose! Whether you spend that cash on righteous customization in your personal prize room or pull it from an ATM to purchase weapons early in the next game -- building a wealth of cash is as important as taking down the competition in this irreverent 80s-themed action game show where everyone wants to be rich and famous!

If you think you can make something, do more work towards making it before showing it off. Blah blah, only one chance to make a first impression. How many games pick up steam later on in life, especially after a mediocre-or-worse launch? Fortnite, by completely changing what the game was (to the point that the title no longer makes sense), and... uh...?
With Lawbreakers failing the way it did, I'd guess this move is forced by their financial situation. Either release now and hope for some income or investor interest, or run out of cash for payroll in a few months anyway, having released nothing. I really can't see this doing well in any state though. At a superficial level, it's too similar to the pre-existing juggernaut of Fortnite. Much like the next big MOBA-situation of yesteryear.

I agree that it's likely driven by financial need. But desperation doesn't make it smart. You're dooming something to fail, and in the process throwing good money after bad. You're desperate for a revenue stream so selling something to consumers you know has a 90%+ chance of being worthless in the very near future.
