Total Rendition will remain free-to-claim on itch.io until the first Steam release is ready. The first Steam release will be initially priced at €19.99 (or it's equivalent in other currencies) and will gradually be raised towards €39.99 (the full-scale release price-tag).
Covertly, we all want Total Rendition to be available for free for all, yet in a capitalist society, this is not feasible: Total Rendition is still in its infancy of development with a remarkably long gestation time. The aforementioned rolling-out strategy was chosen to maximise attention needed for the project to obtain the millions of quid it needs to be developed in a gold status game with close-to-AAA production values it was envisioned as.
Be quick though: All copies of Total Rendition claimed on itch.io will give you access to the full version once that's ready. So, you could save up to €39.99! Furthermore, Total Rendition will be priced at €19.99 on itch.io once the first version of Total Rendition available for Steam is out, which
will probably happen somewhere next year is done when it's done.
