Steam Early Access Game “The Tower” Got Released Seven Months Early by Mistake

By   /   Jul 5, 2014

Steam Early Access game that goes by the name of “The Tower” has been released by mistake, seven months ahead of its official release date. This mistake was made by a member of game’s moderating team who accidentally made the game available for everyone on Steam Store.

The developer, Dante Knoxx has this to say about the recent mishap:

Oh, Christ! I recently gave Zakk access to our back-end as a Moderator, so I could concentrate on working flat-out and remove some of the community strain from my work load, and the fool has released us seven months early!!

I’ve approached Valve. Hopefully they can retroactively ‘reset’ us. Bloody hell…and just before the weekend…I’m so sorry people!

Previously, The Tower was slated for a 2015 release and was sitting quite nicely in the Steam Early Access before the moderator mistakenly released it.

However, in a recent update, Knoxx said that Valve has allowed the game to return to steam early access without any problems and now it will release in early 2015.

We’re officially back on Early Access. Sorry about that folks! 😀

This kind of mistake could have proven to be extremely serious, if Valve hadn’t allowed The Tower to be brought back into Steam Early Access and we hope that this type of mishap doesn’t occur again.
