Gamers who were excited for the launch of Dead Island got a surprise when they downloaded the game from Steam the other day: they downloaded the developer version. People ran into all sorts of bugs, as well as having the ability to noclip (go through walls and such). A few of the more technically-inclined gamers looked into the coding and found out that the game was indeed the developer build instead of the finished product. The correct version has since been released, and can be downloaded from Steam as a patch. You can read the discovery forum post about it here, or read about the problem on Dead Island's website.
