    I think this is a fairly savvy move on their part. It diminishes the chances of early review-bombing by unhappy kickstarter backers. If we had the key a week ago and had steam set to notify us when it goes live, that's going to remind a lot of people that this game exists, and the promises that were made in the selling of it. There's no downside, financially, to doing this - with a huge potential upswing of rolling the dice on letting the general steam community decide if it wants to buy the game or not, without the added baggage of angry backer reviews.

    Also, I find this kind of manipulation very off-putting. Why do Ultima and System Shock get the (dis)honor of getting this studio up off the floor, while their future games that lack such pedigree will potentially benefit from all the experience making UU and SS3. It should be the other way around, fail on the no-name shit, and once you're experienced, tackle the franchises that are respected and that you're known for.

    edit: for clarity

    Looks like enemy AI is going to be patched in later.

    I cannot believe that's the released game. Aside from NPCs stuck on geometry, AI not fighting back, the lack of any fall damage for falling four(?) stories - the much-touted lizardmen look like plastic toys. How on earth did any art director let that ship?

    edit: for fairness, that's not the release build. I just saw the video is from Nov. 9th, so it's a week old.
