Positech Games releases new trailer of Production Line in alpha and gives a date for the Steam Early Access release
Positech Games, the developers of Democracy 3 and Gratuitous Space Battles (and publisher of Big Pharma) are super-happy to announce the first teaser trailer and Steam early access release date for their car-factory tycoon game / weld-em-up Production Line for PC!
And also note that developer cliffski has churned out not one, not ten, but twenty five development blog videos on youtube so far. Here is the latest one: https://youtu.be/eMsd94J0_ls
Production Line has been in alpha-access pre-orders for three months direct from the developer through the humble widget, but we are now taking the plunge and opening it up to the multitudes on steam from 18th May. Currently the price is only $13, but that will rise to $15.99 as we go into Early Access. Existing players will get steam keys added to their accounts. The game will initially be for PC only and in English only. So far over 9,000 clever, attractive people have pre-ordered the game.
Production Line is still very much in development, with some big features, such as marketing and repairs/defects still planned to go in during Early Access. The game is fully playable however, and even has some steam achievements already built in. The developer is taking the unusual step of asking players to vote on development priorities right from the games main menu screen.
