Steam Early Access launches, includes Arma 3, Prison Architect

Steam Early Access, a section of Steam that allows users to play titles still in development, launched today with 12 available titles, Valve announced via press release.

The program was announced back in October 2012 alongside Steam Greenlight's acceptance of non-gaming software. According to Sean Pollman of Badland Studio, Steam Early Access will provide beneficial feedback during the development process.

"A lot of games are already operating as ongoing services that grow and evolve with the involvement of customers and the community," Pollman said. "Greenlight helped us raise awareness for Kinetic Void, and now Steam Early Access will let us continue the development of our game while gathering crucial feedback, input and support from the steam Community."

The following games will be the first available titles:

1... 2... 3... KICK IT! (Drop That Beat Like an Ugly Baby)
Arma 3
Drunken Robot Pornography
Gear Up
Kerbal Space Program
Kinetic Void
Prison Architect
Under the Ocean

Steam Early Access is available through the game dropdown menu.
