We’ve been asked if our games contain any DRM, and the answer is, emphatically, no. AI War and some of its expansions currently have a simple license key (which turns the trial version into the full version), but that’s it. No need to contact our servers during install, no hidden drivers, no encryption, or install limits. And we’ll be removing the need for license keys in that game once we get the next expansion out — having the license keys at all is a legacy thing.
We want to make it easy on our customers, and we’ve never really felt like DRM works, anyway. If you like our games, please buy them so that we can make more, but we’re not about to start treating our real customers like thieves just to thwart the inevitable pirates.
The license keys on our older titles were there in order to make it easy for us to freely distribute the full versions of the games in a shareware-like fashion — you could get the demo installer from anywhere, and then convert it into the full version with a tiny little text key. Handy for you and us! But ultimately that was a minor annoyance for folks, so starting in 2013 we moved away from that model for our direct-download titles. And then in 2014 we began converting all of our older titles to have no-license-key versions.
