The Exiled early access is approaching, and Fairytale Distillery will be running an Exiled open early access testing event on February 23!

Paragon Early Access and Beta Weekends

Thanks to the current workload from my new job I haven’t really had much time for gaming, including beta testing.  I actually received an invite to test out the Paragon beta, for example, but had to skip it unfortunately.  That also means that I haven’t really kept as up to date as I would like […]

Albion Online Early Access

You might have noticed a lack of “early access” posts as of late, and there is a couple of reasons for that.  First, as I have mentioned elsewhere recently, I have become increasingly busy lately in my non-gaming life, and something around here had to give (there is only me and Nick working on the […]

A.I. Invasion Early Access Hands-on

A few days ago the A.I. Invasion began, and what I mean by that is that the A.I. Invasion early access from GameArt Studio recently launched on Steam.  At the time I didn’t mention it because I suspected that I could gain access to the game and actually try it out before writing anything up.  […]
