So now I'm hearing that this game will now be a Steam exclusive, even though you guys promised a DRM-Free version of the game. If the game was available to people through Steam and any other channel you put your game on (DRM-Free), you're backers (who I would assume some of them also pledged for a DRM-Free copy of the game) probably wouldn't have that much of a problem with it. However, going back on your word and making it a Steam exclusive in the end is a pretty big slap in the face to those who supported you. This really isn't acceptable.

You've pretty much killed my interest in this game as a whole. Unless this is temporary I really can't see myself purchasing this game anytime soon (if ever). If you're not going to do something you've promised on your kickstarter:

Pledge $10 or more
DRM-free copy of the game for Windows and Mac

Then don't even bother making that promise to begin with.

DRM-Free copies of the game WILL be coming to pledges, but only pledges. We never promised the game would sell as a DRM-free version outside of the kickstarter pledges.

Steams actual DRM is a package of encryption softwares that change the way the game installs, limiting the ability to use the game to having steam, while in the end effect blocking people from running the game without steam is not technically 'steams drm' I think we are having a semantical missunderstanding

that being said, if we didnt have steam, we'd have our own intergrated login system called 'arkdrop' still, which we've always had people required to login to and would have continued to do so had we not made this change, the only people except would have been the kickstarters, and that would have only worked for LAN play and offline play. Because the system requires these IDs for multiplayer.

You might not be using CEG which is the encryption you're referring to, but requiring one to run the game through Steam IS DRM, plain and simple. It's disingenuous to try and claim you're not using Steam's DRM just because you're not using CEG. If the game has to be run through Steam then it has DRM because of the nature of Steam.

that being said, if we didnt have steam, we'd have our own intergrated login system called 'arkdrop' still, which we've always had people required to login to and would have continued to do so had we not made this change, the only people except would have been the kickstarters, and that would have only worked for LAN play and offline play. Because the system requires these IDs for multiplayer.

And what's the justification for this exactly? If you have to make a DRM-free version for the backers then why make it exclusive to them? I don't understand why you promised a DRM-free copy for the backers if you're so set on the game having DRM. Requiring IDs for multiplayer is one thing, requiring people to log into Steam to even play single player is very different.

You know why as well as I know why, we dont want our game pirated, or atleast limit the amount of it, (before we made this change there was a massive amount of torrents for our game out there we knew it would only get worse) plain and simple, we promised our kickstarter backers to be free of this because they were helping us when we had no credibility at all, and we felt they should be rewarded for it. As I said even that will be pretty limited just because of the technical requirements.

Hmm, a cursory google shows recent torrents of your game to exist, so I'm not sure the DRM is stopping anyone...

Fair enough then, I guess it's working for you. I still feel that putting restrictions like this on legitimate players is unjustified but we'll have to agree to differ I guess.

EDIT: Watching the karma on these posts has been funny. At the time of my last post all of yours were -1 and mine were +2 (I guess someone who felt the same as me popped by invisibly). Now mine are 0 and some of yours are back up to 0 so I guess a fan of EoS has popped by.

Well thanks for being calm and civil about it, its to easy that people quickly jump to getting angry rather then discussing things like this, and I'm glad I took the time to talk it out with you, even if we both just had to end with agreeing to disagree :)

Yea, heh I did notice the karma moving around alot :)

Just a thought, but once you release the DRM-free version to backers it will be leaked to torrent trackers. At that point, forcing the DRM on the rest of the legitimate players seems somewhat pointless when the pirates will all be playing the DRM-free version.
