Echo of Soul dropped some rather bad news for players who elected to buy into the game’s Steam Early Access earlier this week. According to a post on the game’s Steam page, the developer has decided to not continue with the game on Steam. Instead, they are asking players to create new accounts on the Aeria Games site.
The reasoning behind this move is that the company believes they won’t be able to “provide stable service continually” via Steam. It seems as though the developers feel they’ll be spreading themselves too thin offering the game through multiple platforms.
There are two things players may want to make note of here. The first is that players are being directed to the Aeria Games site rather than gamigo’s. The second is that no mention was made regarding refunds for the early access purchase. This doesn’t necessarily mean that a refund or some other form of compensation won’t be forthcoming, but players may want to inquire.
