Game download shop GOG has launched an early access programme that notably features a "no questions asked" 14-day refund policy.
"It doesn't matter if you're having technical issues, if you don't think the game is fleshed-out enough yet, or if it simply doesn't click with you - all games in development can be returned for any reason," the company said.
GOG promises to "carefully evaluate" and hand-pick each in-development game it sells, and has chosen Starbound, Project Zomboid, TerraTech, Ashes of the Singularity and Curious Expedition to launch with. Each is discounted until 2nd February for the occasion.
Project Zomboid is getting a new Creative Mode.
