    I’m very interested in Griftlands, but I’m no fan of early access either. I guess I’ll just wait and see.Report

      Klei is not particularly untrustworthy. I’d say that the game is about 2/3rds done.

      The 2/3rds in question are two of the characters/storylines. So it’d be like playing Slay the Spire when the only two characters available are the Ironclad and the Silent.

      Not like getting the game when the only levels available are the first two and they’re still working on the final one.Report

        It’s only partially about trust – I also just prefer to play a finished game over an incomplete one. The one game I’ve bought in early access was Factorio, and that’s because I found the concept too compelling to leave alone, and it behaved like a complete game, even though it wasn’t.

        As an aside, Factorio is due to leave early access in a few weeks, I should write a Saturday Gaming post for it in celebration of it actually being finished.Report

    Deathtrap is 90% off in the Steam Sale.

    It’s a little bit Orcs Must Die!, it’s a little bit Diablo.

    Most importantly: it’s a little bit of money. Two bucks.Report
