OVER FUNDED game ($3mill.??) decides to ask for more cash. October 2013 release delays 6 weeks - BECOMES 14 weeks since the time of this post.... FISHY FISHY.

When will we see some optimization? I'm sad to say laptop GeForces have a ton of trouble running the game and it looks choppy as hell. As of right now I'd love to playtest but I'm not masochistic enough. Will wait until you get that fixed before I keep on playtesting.

There is no "press on the developers" to begin with, nor should there be. The game was fully funded from the start and InXile does not need to scrimp for cash by giving out discounts in exchange for early access and helping test for bugs. In addition, the demand for this sequel has been very high, and even original backers had to pay nearly this price ($55) in order to be included in the early testing. The developer has every right to set this price. If you don't like it, just wait until the game has been out and finished for a while and goes on discount later.

I agree with PhoenixDIE.
This price for an unfinished game will put no press on the developers to actually finish the game. That's why you sell games WHEN THEY ARE FINISHED.
Chances are they will stay in an unfinished state for years if the creators can already sell it and get the cash.
So if you as a player play through these expensive unfinished games and then the developers add more content and a true ending, how big are the chances that you will take the time and REPLAY it all just to see the new content? Small-to-none!

Is this the final price or just the early access extra? Sorry if already answered D:

I'd really love this but can't afford it right now. Too many christmas gifts to be bought.

And another Development team i have lost all respect for. Asking $60 for a unfinished game is dumb. I waste LOTS of money on games. I have no problem wasting money on a game lik ethis as it looks cool. But $60 for a unfinished game isnt me just wasting money. Its me gambling on a chance you will actually finish the game and produce a $60 game at that! gl to you guys... Not getting my money, Just like the devs from Uber wont get my money.

Matix, just because they have the windows version of the game to a playable beta level, doesn't mean they have all versions of the game at a playable beta level. And demanding that they not release any beta candidates until all versions of it are there is ridiculous in the extreme.

So quit your whining, and once they have a beta of the linux version, to the level that they consider it to be a playable beta, you'll be able to play it on your linux system. Until then, you'll just have to deal with it.

People have the right to complain about the $60 early access price. You can try to justify that price all you want, but this is not Kickstart and the game doesn't seem like it's floundering for more startup seed money. People are going to be reluctant to shell out that amount of money for any unfinished game, let alone an indie title. Even if no one on Steam paid the $60 for early access, it doen't effect the "hardcore day one supporters" one way or the other. The game will just take longer to finish.
I admit I find it interesting, but not enough to shell out the asking price. I don't give a damn about all the digital goodies and extras. I don't have a burning need to play the game before it's finished. If they were doing preorders for what the retail price would be, I'd gladly do that. That way they'd get more money for developement and I'll get a copy when it's officially released.
