What's New In Legends Of Ellaria:
This week was all about aesthetics, we started polishing our graphics, beautifying our environments, and adding caves and mines into the game. Also..

we're giving away some Steam Keys.

Yes, exactly as you read, we will start giving away a weekly Steam Key to one of our lucky subscribers on our newsletter only.

The lucky winner will be randomly picked during the week and will be announced every Tuesday in our weekly newsletter.

By the way, we're starting QA testing and we want you to be a part of it. If you would like to play exclusive test builds and be part of the final steps to launch Legends of Ellaria, send us an email with the subject: I want to test LoE to loe@larkonstudio.com.

Spots are limited!

On behalf of the person mentioned in the email and their privacy, and for future emails. I feel it'd be best to leave their contact details out of a newsletter email and instead just give them a surprise "you won" personal email. That way, no one unwanted gets their email and people who watch copious amounts of porn and have all sorts of email trackers etc won't unknowingly leak that email out to a few dozen junk mail spammers.

At least in my opinion that is.

I got another question: When you released the game via Steam will we be still able to buy a DRM-free versiob through your homepage?

After the steam EA release, you won't be able to buy LoE through our site, since we're a small team and can't support multiple publishing platforms.
However, we will support the versions that we released through our site for anyone who backed us before the release.

Does this also mean, that with every new version-update you will give the prerelease backers the possibility to redownload the whole game(installer), as you do it now, or just an possiblility for an update?
I ask this, cause the DRM-free installer might get lost someday or the update launcher doesn't work, but I still want to get the DRM free Version I paid money for

Why not just amend the TC to include the update/installation of a DRM client as a condition for bankruptcy announcement on behalf of Larkon? Though personally, if Steam goes belly under then something apocalyptic has happened as it'd take the end of the world for it to suddenly go bust.

The problem with a DRM free game is that it's easy to duplicate it and upload it to other players, which means that our game would be easily hacked and shared for free. However, when you buy a game from Steam (or receive the Steam key from us), it remains in your library forever regardless of any situation.

In the event of an apocalyptic event, you would even be able to play LoE in Steam "Offline Mode".

This might be true, but you see through stores like GOG that it's still profitable to sell DRM-free version. But hyeah, I'm happy as long as you support the DRMfree-versions which were brought throuh your website.^^
