Picked it up despite me not being fond of DRM-free installers, I really prefer it tied to some service I regularly use like Desura, GOG or Steam. But it was a good way to use some of those Blue coins that otherwise would probably have expired eventually anyway.
If you're talking about GG's Defender's Quest, then yeah their "DRM Free" pre-downloader.exe for the download of the download of the program sucks. On the plus side, GG just provides the Mac/Linux versions straight up, no fuss. The GG downloader ends up hiding the Windows game you paid for in plain sight under the "GamersGate temporary files" folder, as a launch(lol took off the .exe) file. Rename the exe back onto it, and it'll work.
Edit: Whoa, wait, you straight up don't like the fact that it isn't Origin/UPlay/GFWL? Do you also have a habit of finding your brown-coated self in an Alliance bar every Unification Day?
