Early Access

Early Access is the official newsletter of Vertical Slice Games. Early Access has a planned August 2022 launch exclusively through Substack.


Delivered directly to your inbox, Early Access is a weekly newsletter summarizing the biggest news in gaming, review aggregation for new and recently released titles, and information and announcements about new and upcoming games.

Whether you’re a #PCMasterRace or #ConsoleWarrior, Early Access will connect the dots on how the week’s biggest gaming stories impacts your play.

Subscribe to Early Access exclusively on Substack to get full access to the newsletter and its dedicated archive.

A new issue of Early Access is delivered every Wednesday covering the gaming news, review aggregation, and more from the previous week. A special edition, titled On the Horizon, is delivered on the first Monday of every month. On the Horizon is similar to the main post, but with a monthly timeframe.


Your support is vital to the continued success of VSG:

  • Free – access to On the Horizon + the occasional paid post.
  • Monthly Subscription ($5/mo.) – access to On the Horizon + all paid posts.
  • Yearly Subscription ($50/yr.) – access to On the Horizon + all paid posts.
  • Founding Member ($300/yr.) – a way to show extra support for VSG, the Founding Membership is identical to the Monthly/Yearly subscriptions.

All subscriptions come with a 7-day free trial on all of the Early Access paywalls. And for a limited time, you can become a part of the Launch Crew and take advantage of 20% off for 1 year (must be redeemed by Dec. 31, 2022).
