The Early Access by itself will go live a little later.
So we'll receive the keys, but the game itself won't be up at that point?
the way i understand it is this (devs please correct me if im wrong at any point, most of this is assumption):
People are using "Early Access" too liberally.
Early Access is the name of a steam program (as in the type of program you participate in) that lets players participate in a games growth by purchasing into an early incomplete version. We purchased keys for a small testing period -before- the devs release it publically as Early Access on steam. People will no longer be able to purchase keys for the game through the website on the 30th, we get our keys, and the steam early access page stays set to "coming soon". While everyone waits to be able to purchase keys on the steam early access page, those of us that bought keys directly through the website will be able to play, test, squash bugs, and comment before the devs release it to the general public. Hopefully that will let the devs produce a slightly more polished version for the general public down the line.
