Gaming Editor Emma Boyes has written up an interesting article regarding the DRM on popular indie game ‘From Dust’.
According to her report, people are being offered refunds if they are unhappy with the system in place.
“Gamers were in uproar when they downloaded Ubisoft’s god game From Dust only to discover that the game’s DRM (digital rights management) software meant they had to be online to authenticate the game… not just once but every single time they wanted to play.”
Emma adds “The site reports that people who have bought the game are being sent emails from Valve stating, “Ubisoft has just announced that they are working on a patch that will eliminate the need for any online authentication for From Dust. The patch will release in approximately two weeks. If you don’t want to wait for the patch or if you haven’t played the game, per Ubisoft’s request, we will issue refunds for this title. If you would still like your purchase of From Dust refunded, please reply to this ticket.”
