RobocraftX by FreeJam is a game about creating games that is currently in early access on Steam. In the upcoming release it is going to be rebranded to Gamecraft at which point it will become commercial software. However if you add RobocraftX to your library before October 24th, it will remain yours forever for free.
Details from the Steam announcement:
On October 24th 2019 Our plan is to shift the game over to $5 Premium (i.e. pay up front) along with the brand name change.
ANYONE WHO ALREADY HAS A COPY OF THE GAME WILL KEEP THEIR COPY, FOR FREE, FOREVER.
ANYONE WHO HAS THE GAME IN THEIR STEAM LIBRARY BETWEEN NOW AND THE 24th WILL ALSO KEEP THEIR COPY, FOR FREE, FOREVER.
SO – TELL YOUR FRIENDS OR ANYONE YOU THINK MAY BE INTERESTED TO OWN THE GAME IN FUTURE, THAT RIGHT NOW IS THE LOWEST PRICE THE GAME WILL EVER BE (i.e. FREE!) AND TO GET IT NOW.
