Your argument is ridiculous and completely childish.
I disagree, I find this to be very important when I buy my games and I would prefer a clear text about it without having to dig down to some hidden text, that is my complaint, something that is quite easy for gog to fix.
Anyone with an ounce of computer knowledge knows in order to play multiplayer you need an internet connection. If you don't want to log on you have that option.
Anyone with an ounce of computer knowledge knows the difference between multiplayer and online multiplayer, you do know multiplayer can be done without any connection to the internet?
The game is completely playable offline minus seeing other players' discoveries or eventually experiencing multiplayer. When that feature becomes available.
I'll point out that at the time this game launched(when the DRM Free text was written) Multiplayer was not even a promised feature. So the only thing you are missing in offline play is seeing other people's discoveries. I think you'll live.
And to someone that does not know about this game that might not be known!!
A DRM system (e.g. like Steam) makes sure that you need to be online and logged-in on a special account to play a game AT ALL. Nothing like that is in the GOG version of this game (or other games in GOG).
Then it's obvious that if you want to play MP you need to be online, that's good sense, not DRM. I urge you to google about Multiplayer and DRM to get informed before posting and complaining about, what you are posting and replying here makes you looking ridiculous, sorry to say.
I urge you right back to google multiplayer, multplayer does not mean you have to be online, I am seeing this claim more and more these days where people think that multiplayer somehow means you need to connect to a 3rd party server on the internet.
I am not complaining about the "No DRM" part of the text, I am complaining about what comes after it.
