Ancaster, Canada - BattleGoat Studios is delighted to announce the launch of Steam Early Access for their upcoming Real Time Geopolitical Strategy game, Supreme Ruler 1936.   Lead Designer and Co-Founder David Thompson commented, "Involving our players in the final stage of development through Steam's Early Access will help provide the testing resources and the feedback necessary to make Supreme Ruler 1936 as polished and complete a game as possible."

BattleGoat's Lead Programmer and Co-Founder George Geczy added, "Self-publishing a strategy game of this scope brings with it a lot of challenges, but the benefit of self-publishing is that we now answer directly to our fans and supporters... we control whatever decisions are necessary to make Supreme Ruler 1936 a truly great game and this Early Access provides that final push!"  Previous BattleGoat titles in the Supreme Ruler series are Supreme Ruler 2010, Supreme Ruler 2020. and Supreme Ruler Cold War.   These titles all followed the traditional publishing model, but the development team believes that self-publishing provides the opportunity for studios to have much more flexibility in development.  Geczy added; "This gives us the ability to be more responsive to the art of the game and the passion of our players."  As an added incentive, BattleGoat is offering the Steam Early Access for 25% off the Release Price of $39.95.

Supreme Ruler 1936 is expected to be released late Q1 2014, and will be available for PC and Mac through Steam and other vendors.
