I think there's been some misinformation and jumping to conclusions regarding the "no mod access" for the non-Steam version. What HBS actually said in the update is players will be unable to browse and access the player generated missions "in game" like they will be able to in Steam workshop. However, this doesn't necessarily mean there won't be an alternative means of playing the user made content (i.e., via a Nexus site). Moreover, they have said they won't be taking any steps to prevent players from modding the game as they like. This will hopefully be cleared up on Friday when they plan to post another update / FAQ.

Anyway, I'm very much looking forward to this game.

Well color me excited. I've been looking at this ever since I had seen it was in production. Hopefully they will have the character diversity that the actual tabletop had. The possibilities of a Sci-Fi Minotaur character makes me grin like an idiot!

cromagdude Now that HBS has released the Friday update / FAQ they have clarified a lot of things mentioned in this article. I hope you or someone from Neoseeker does an update as this article could now be somewhat misleading. For instance, from what I understand, the DRM-free version is only going to be available to KS backers. People who pre-order the game or buy the game after launch will only be able to get the Steam version.

Got it added in. Thanks for the reminder on the Friday post.

I'm slightly disappointed. They kind of implied they would release the game as DRM free when I backed the project. Then again, I might be thinking of Wasteland 2, Project Eternity, or Torment.

If it is DRM free, could I possibly give a copy to my friend and let him play it?

Darknet If you backed it, then you're getting a DRM-Free copy of the base game that you can download from HBS website, plus the Berlin DLC campaign when they release that. It's only the post-Berlin DLC that won't have a non-Steam option and that's probably going to be at least a year away, anyway.

So to answer your question, yeah I believe you could let your friend play your DRM-free version.

I know I'm getting it because I backed it up. But the other projects will allow you to buy it off of Gog DRM free.

Thanks for letting me know about that. Now I just gotta figure out how to install it to my tablet.

My understanding is that the iOS and Android versions will be sold on their respective stores. They were not an option for the Kickstarter backer reward tiers (which said Windows, Mac, or Linux) because of the distribution restrictions for tablet platforms. This is likely the case for any Kickstarter project mentioning tablet versions of a game, not just SRR.

Not sure if that's what you were talking about, or if you thinking of some "unofficial" way to port the PC / Mac version to a tablet, yourself.

I did some research. From what I can tell, you can't put the PC/Mac version on your tablet. You have to buy them separately. If you're a backer, you have no access to the tablet version.
