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."

Weeell i suppose if steam is not DRM its freely open to being circumvented, removed, disabled then ?

heh, I notice that the demo is offered through a variety of services which technically means that those "versions" of the game are drm free so maybe he was talking only about the demo. See, we care about gamers so we didn't put any drm on our game....demo. Full game is locked up tight. Reminds me of a good joke we had around the office, someone asked if we'd be able to buy this game outside of steam? We all laughed our asses off, hell no, then there would be no drm on the game!
