The whole point of kickstarter was getting the creative freedom to make something that was extremely hard to get support to get going. It wasn't about flipping the bird to all publishers.

Yeah, that's not really the vibe I got from Brian's talks on the issue over the past year... He seemed pretty doggone set on eliminating the publishers from the story altogether.

I kind of doubt that inXile is going to sign away the rights to the game to get published or change the stance on DRM or the backer rewards. Deep Silver is just one part of the distribution and I am sure the game will probably also appear on Steam, Desura, Origin, and etc.

It will. That's why it seems weird for them to sign a deal with Deep Silver for physical distribution. I seriously doubt any kind of percentage of sales will be physical.

It seems more likely they just did this to get Deep silver to handle the distribution of the awards and to do QA. But eh, still wish they'd have gone with anyone but Deep Silver. For Brian to go "They're such great guys!" is just bullshit. Deep silver is one of the most terrible publishers in existence.
