On Hard Reset DRM

Some of the comments about the Hard Reset demo story below discuss the DRM in the Flying Wild Hog's throwback first-person shooter, so it's timely that this is one of the topics in a Q&A with the developers on Ars Technica. The brief conversation explains their philosophy about saved games, discusses the under explored realm of mid-budget PC games, and while some will note that Steam itself can be considered Digital Rights Management, the game contains no other DRM. "I'm a gamer as well as a developer," says Flying Wild Hog cofounder and programmer Klaudiusz Zych. "And I hate DRM. So no DRM."

I did read that part. I wasn't aware that Steam being DRM was open to interpretation, but still, that's Blue editorializing and it's fine. The developer on the other hand is definitely using Steam DRM on every copy of his game, so for him to say that there is no DRM is is just flat out wrong.

Ubisoft could say they are using no DRM, apart from the always online connection requirement. That would be about as valid as what this guy just said.
