Don't support unfair business practices that are anti consumer.

Streamers/Youtubers getting a "6 Day Demo"? of the game that the dev's are asking you to PAY for and YOU have to wait 6 more days to actually play?

What is this level of BS?

They obviously have the game finished and at the very least for your $20.00 dollars they could do you the "COURTESY" as a "PAYING CUSTOMER" of giving you the same access as what they are giving streamers/youtubers for "FREE!!!!"

DEV's You've gone F'd it up.

Now Klei they be doing it right, I payed my $20.00 and got they're "ALPHA" of ONI and enjoying it got almost 300 hours in it already with no sign of stopping as they update the thing almost daily.

Rufus you should really be taking some notes :)

Sorry if this is harsh but this is horse poo poo.

Will not give you my money for no honey :)

You almost cant buy any other game then, too.

Most youtubers/streamers get games for free. There are even examples where they get the FULL game for free BEFORE the release and not just a demo.

Oh man... You seriously need to get a live... There isn't enough games out there for you to wait 6 days? I'm glad they give a demo to the youtubers/streamers... That way, I was able to discover this game... And I think you don't know what a game release is... It's a big day, they need to be sure they are ready and the game is ready too...

It's not anti-consumerism. It is called marketing. They give a few streamers, and youtubers a copy. Those people have an audience. One youtuber might have a million subscribers those 1 million people see them play, and think hey that looks like a fun game.. In turn lets say 1/4 of those subscribers buy the game at 14 bucks a pop thats 3.5 million in sales for what was a couple hundred dollars worth of the game to reviewers, and youtubers. So is it really anti-consumerism because I see it as good marketing. We can see whats in the game from someone who has the game vs buying it based off of trailers, and prerendered screenshots that we will never see in the game like No Man Sky did.

you are so moved by this game I can tell you want it bad. You've inspired me to buy it and my friends. So $13bucks is hard for you to spend and refund after a test run if YOU dont like it.

I'm with Roley who quoted "I'll buy it just to spite idiots like you"

So basically you're sayin' "I'm too good for this game, ♥♥♥♥ you all. I get it when it's 2$ (which will be likely in 2-3 years due to Indies having limited resources).

Also:
YouTubers Get it for free so they can *PROMOTE*. You never have worked on anything related to Publishing, huh?

Bought it already, not looking at any youtube videos, not looking at any spoilers, I know what I like. Rufus had me at "80's cop shows".

Anyway there are thousands of games you can play until this comes out. Or go outside, see a movie, go to dinner, have a date, hang with RL friends.

Or hey; go watch some of the shows that this game is based off! Miami Vice is my fav show of all time. Want to see some of your favourite actors in their 20's? Bruce Willis playing a pimp and drug lord, Ed O'neil playing a washed up DEA agent... and metric tons of huge actors who got their start playing roles that you never figured they would.

Enjoy life, don't wait for stuff, do stuff now.

So youre s**tting on an indie developer for marketing their game? Wow. Im assuming youve never worked for yourself? I get this with AAA titles and their toxic pre-order BS, totally. But this is just misdirected.

K, I voted. ;D

Okay "Rabid" Fan's "No" to everything you people just said from my last comment. (Sorry to the people that have commented before this gets out we may discuss in a bit but as of 8:00 pm my time, No.

I'm saying what is on "Offer" is bad.

I am believe it or not a fan of the game.

I beleive this product to be "Very" good.

What i am saying is that: If you expect me to pay what is it now? $15.00 dollars and the entire game is locked for what? Another 4 day's now?

Anyways if you want me to pay you "Now" for the game I expect the same privillage as the youtubers/streamers and get what they have already got for "Free"

That would be a pro consumer move. This is not.

I am not a fan of this.

Dev's please change this, it your only hope.

Review copies are standard practice in the gaming industry. Free marketing, plus, it helps us since we'll get early impressions of the game, before it officialy releases.

How is this their only hope. Your basically crying over the fact that they market a product. Why do you have to have the game immediatly. That is the issue with AAA titles their pre-released, Alpha, Beta testing, and by the time the game hits launch. The game is already washed up over encumbered by overly elitist who think their better because they played Alpha, or Beta. Seriously all these AAA titles are not even full games anymore. You buy the game for 70 bucks, and then within a week to get the rest of the story line for 20 bucks a pop, or in some cases 300 dollars to unlock the full game, and alot of it is recycled garbage on a new system.. COD, Black Ops, MOW same crap different name, and newer system. Nothing really good. Nintendo even falls into this beating a dead horse problem with their games. Instant replay of their old games without backwards compatability, and Nintendo creates a false low supply to keep their prices on systems, and games at all time highs.
