Frozen Synapse Soundtrack

The Frozen Synapse Website now offers online sales of the full soundtrack for Frozen Synapse (thanks Morris). They provide a sample, and the following explanation of the implications of buying it from them rather than elsewhere:
(PLEASE NOTE - Other distributors (such as Valve) may choose to offer the soundtrack at a lower price if you have already purchased the full game outside of a Soundtrack Edition bundle. If you are in this position, but would like to support Mode 7 and nervous_testpilot further, you are welcome to choose to pay more and buy direct from us. This will encourage the creation of more music and other ambitious indie game soundtracks! However, please also feel free to shop around.)

Few questions though, if I buy the game + soundtrack bundle direct from their site, does the game use Steam or is it stand alone. If I wanted to play with someone else that is at my house, does it have an offline LAN mode (or even a hotseat mode) or will I need the two copies/steam accounts?

The game does not need Steam, though you get a code at purchase (even at Mode 7) that makes it able to add your game to Steam.

There's an offline mode, but it's purely the SP campaign, no hotseat or lan, since all turns go over the central server. However, when you purchase it, you get a 2nd one free.

One feature of the game that often goes unnoticed is how great the multiplayer and lobby system actually is. You can have multiple games going on at the same time, and because all turns are processed and stored at the server, you can asynchronically submit turns.

So if both people are online, you can play turns simultaneously, or if not, you can play it like a PBEM game without the hassle. And it makes game replays available, so you can replay games your friends played.
