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."

What is this guy talking about? It's a Steamworks game. How does that equate to no DRM?

From the perspective of the developers themselves are not adding any of their own DRM or any that they've licensed...

But yes, it isn't technically correct.

However, in this age of "you must be online all the time", I'll live with it as the least of evils.

After all, let's not kid ourselves, even in the "golden age" of PC gaming, we had things like code wheels, and enter the 4th word of the first sentence on page 12 :-)
