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 yeah, I'm happy as long as you support the DRMfree-versions which were brought throuh your website.^^
