OlivawR: That refund policy is nice, but I'd preferred the usual one, with an addendum that if the game is never finished you get the option of a refund.
How...would one be able to tell if a game is never finished? :D
Unless the developers themselves admit that they're giving up on it (and much more likely they'll just instead lie and say "What we have now is the complete game, enjoy!"), or if they die, you can't really tell if a game is never finished.

Honestly, when you first made the refund comment, I thought you were talking about a prostitute.

I don't really like early acces, because so many dev teams abused the system. If I check my steam library I have these games are in it: The Stomping Land, Spacebase DF-9, Planetary Annihilation....

But don't forget we got really good games with the early acces system like: Divinity Original Sin, Wasteland 2, Don't Starve, Kerbal Space Program, Xenonauts, Broforce, Satellite Reign, Invisible, Inc.

And with this, I hope we will see Grim Dawn and RWBY: Grimm Eclipse on GOG soon.

Worst decision ever.
*shrug* Color me indifferent. I shall ignore them just as I did before. Give me a quality finished product, and then we can talk.
Thanks GOG,

Both for help new developers to get access to their games, and for helping users to get these games in a more accurate way, with this I mean the term "games in development" is definitively better than "early access", the second is pure marketing... your name is the truth.
You can't polish a turd, all you can do is throw a fresh coat of paint on it and hope no one notices, and that's exactly what they're doing here. They're dressing it up by telling you that it's going to be heavily curated and that you get a 14 day refund policy, but they address exactly ZERO of the major issues with early access; the developer is under no obligation to finish the project, even if they want to there could still be huge setbacks and, if by some miracle they finish the game, it could still be missing promised features.

Which should be obvious going in. I have no interest in paying for a game in beta (or in some cases, alpha), but there is a market for this. GOG would be stupid to not try to make it work.

In some cases, not all Early Games weren't not finished, and this system helps small developers to build their dreams, and consumers to reach games styles otherwise we would never see. But words are powerful, and GAMES IN DEVELOPMENT makes much more sense than EARLY ACCESS, the second term is PURE marketing, the first one is much more honest.
