    I am saying that because you are trying to make the devs do something that will only stress them even more, every time they released one they would get rant posts and 100s of re-posted bug pages about how broken and unplayable an alpha of an alpha was...

    And then when they stop doing it because they feel it isn't even viable as an alpha of an alpha they still get 100s of pages in backlash /=


    Edit: I don't think anyone behind a game would find it a viable or justified to release a build to cater to 1 person that wants broken game-play for lunch.

    I'm sure me and several others would be fine with bleeding edge builds. However the problem is these builds will land in the hands of inexperienced users who will post bug reports,contact support, etc about having "issues".

    a nightly build would be kind of fun. selectable through the steam selector. or possibly even a separate listing on steam altogether. Maybe have a separate key you activate with a disclaimer

    For actual nightly builds I'd prefer a proper download location so it's easy to revert back to an older version in case something major is broken.

    In fact, nightly builds of the dev branch would be truely amazing.
