Valve Revises Early Access Rules And Guidelines

Valve has published a new set of Early Access guidelines and rules for developers to follow.

The guidelines seem to be about keeping developers out of trouble, by setting limits on what they can promise and generally helping them set expectations properly. They also declare that devs need to clearly label their games as Early Access when sold outside the site, such as on Humble Bundle. Early Access also needs to occur at the same time irregardless of where a backer purchased it, and devs have to charge the same price everywhere.

You can read more about what these new guidelines here and here.
