New Level of Game Dev Stupidity

So, check this out.
You can pre-purchase the FULL VERSION of the game PLANET COASTER for $29.99 or you can purchase the HALF WAY COMPLETED ALPHA VERSION of the game for $74.99.
You are paying the game devs 3 times the price of the game so that YOU can beta test the game for them?
I'm speechless. This is beyond stupid. Maybe soon you can purchase a picture of the game box for $199.95 or the full game for $19.95 when it's eventually released.

The deal is Bullfrog.
For that price they could have at least add the Head Addition version they have.
Welp, some companies dig their own graves fast.

Exactly this ^
Maybe those guys will offer a digital "Season Pass" for $99.99... or $5 if you buy the physical plastic scratch-off card, packed inside a DVD size case that has a tri-fold cardboard slip case with an exclusive day-1-release hologram price sticker.
Same thing for Elite Dangerous: Horizons - Beta 74.99 or Elite Dangerous: Horizons 59.99
Have to be for people who want to "invest" in the game(s)

As long as people exist to buy it, they will continue to do it.
It is business after all.
Most businesses physical or digital will do it. Even CH isn't immune

Yep. Reminds me of Planetary Annihilation. Game cost more for alpha and beta then launch. Was disgusting. Their reasoning is you get to play sooner... ya because your doing their work for them.
Anything less then peace will destroy us all.
