No, I didn't. It doesn't matter how you couch it in pseudo-logic, the bottom line is that I'm not getting the complete game, I'm getting a partial game in DRM free format and a fully functioning one with DRM.
They knew the terms of the license when they did the KS and they should have disclosed it then. I backed in part to send a message that we want these sorts of games without DRM.
I really and truly don't care what sort of apologetic you can whip up, the bottom line is that this isn't what I backed. And it's an insult to those of us that thought we were getting a full DRM free game rather than an extended demo.
Under what insane logic is the game crippled? Because they refuse to sell you some future DLC, of unknown quality and volume, in the format you prefer? The game works and loads levels from an editor, do you seriously doubt more content than you'd ever care to play will be available for it?
"Extended demo"? And you're calling my argument "pseudo logic"? You gotta be fucking kidding me, you're not even rational if you really think what they're giving you amounts to a demo. Good fucking grief!
Yes, it's a bit of hyperbole, but the bottom line is that the DRM free version is unlikely to see the level of modding that the Steam version will as it's only available to the KS backers.
A game of this sort can have a ton of content that comes from 3rd party developers, and it's really disgusting that the KS backers are going to be stuck loading up a Steam copy to get to play them, especially seeing as it's supposed to be a DRM free game that we were given.
All, I want is what they promised, nothing more. There was no mention made that they would be crippling the KS backer version to appease MS. They could have disclosed it and probably made enough to fund their goal, they just wouldn't have had my money.
