Wow, thanks for the sentiment. We really appreciate it.
The fact is, to download the game on itch.io, you don't have to pay anything. There is a small link that says something like "No thanks, just take me to the downloads," and if you'd like to do that we are fine with it.
The current available version of miniLAW is in fact an Alpha build, but the game is still pretty far from completion. We have big plans for the development of the story, and although the current build will give you a general idea of how the final game will play out, it is essentially in a stage between a demo and a final product.
We have considered going to a release for Steam Early Access, or providing some kind of pre-order system for the full game when it is completed. But the development cycle for this title may last until this time next year, as we are constantly adding new features and content.
Thanks again for playing and for being a part of the community, I hope that you and others in your same position will keep playing and offering feedback.
For more community content, check out reddit.com/r/minilaw and feel free to submit images, art, questions, suggestions, and discussion about the game. We would love to build a thriving community out of the project and build the best game we possibly can for them.
