Trove Starts Alpha Testing, Sells Supporter Packs

Trion Worlds is offering invitations to play the Alpha of their new game, Trove, for $5 bucks and up, all the way to $2500 matter of fact. Is this trend of pay-as-the-gaming-companies-develop going to become the norm in game development or is this just an offshoot of the Kickstarter push for R&D funding? Thanks to Karu Cifer for the heads up.

Taking this kind of approach with customers just makes it look as though Trion aren’t particularly confident of what they’re doing any more and want to make a quick buck before cashing out.
