Indie Toronto developer Massive Damage Inc announced that if you pre-order Halcyon 6, you can play it "weeks" before it hits Steam Early Access.
You will get to play Halcyon 6 weeks BEFORE it appears on Steam Early Access. Act One are available at launch, Acts Two and Three will be included as FREE updates during Early Access. - Access to the Backer Beta (est. delivery: Late February) - A digital download copy of Halcyon 6 (Steam Key at Early Access launch)
You can preorder the game right here for $19.99, while also checking out there Steam page here. Halcyon 6 hit Kickstarter last year and crushed a lot of their goals, thanks to the help of the Square Enix Collective. It's expected to hit sometime this year, with the Backer Beta being late February.
Edit: Thanks to reader @Coboney for pointing out a mistake that originally say "6 weeks" before release...it's just "weeks" in general.
