Begone, DRM! Also fixes

17 likes
Hi,  

It seems that we've disappointed some of you by providing a not-really-DRM-free version to those who wanted it to be completely DRM-free. We want to apologize for that; it didn't occur to us that many people care about it that much. So it seems logical to fix this. We're glad to announce that the DRM-free version (i.e. the non-Steam one, the one you download directly from our servers) is now indeed absolutely DRM-free and doesn't require a key. (It's not like keys stop pirates anyway.) So if you just want your basic click-download-install routine with no third parties involved, you are now all set for it. Sorry once again, hope it wasn't too much of a stress. We would also like to add that this DRM-free version is freshly patched, so it's the best there is! You can also look through the list of fixes here.

Oh, and if some of your friends want a DRM-free copy of Knock-Knock, they can always purchase it on GOG.

      @Kristian The $5 tier only gives you a copy of the game "at half price", so you probably need a steam key that might be a coupon code, unless the statement on the right is wrong.

      I have a question about Modus 47, the little "mini-game" we got. The clock seems to be tied to our computer clock--does it matter if your time in the real world is day or night? Do you have any hints for us regarding the use of Modus 47. (You should probably make this an add-on to the core game as a DLC in the future).

      Hm, so where do I download the DRM-free version? There is no link to downloads in the $5 tier mail (it's just a Steam key, there are no addons afterall).

      Nicely done. It would be even better if you could give a GoG key to us DRM-adverse folk, but I don't want to be too greedy... I'll probably end up buying a few copies there to give to my friends anyway...

      Awesome news! You people are great! Thank you!

      To be fair, AFAIR, we were never promised a DRM-free release during the campaign…

      However, I was one of the grumbling lot that requested to replace the standalone installer key for a Steam key, since a separate activation mechanism did not make much sense to me, but having a DRM-free version tops all that (after all, you never know when any of the account-based platform ceases to exist or decides to drastically change their ways).

      GOG is indeed a great option for older games, but their lukewarm-coldish approach to GNU/Linux (refusing to even mention the existing releases that are available straight from the developers), sadly, does not make them a better choice to get modern cross-platform game titles.

      So thank you once again for releasing the great experience that 'Knock-knock' is, and minimizing the anxieties of dealing with it purely to gameplay moments.

      Thank you very much for joining the side of DRM-free!

      I'm in the same boat, Robbie. I'm still waiting on my copy of the game and whatever else $47 pledge is supposed to net me.

    9. Creator Dirk Schlobinski on October 15, 2013

      Thanks, I appreciate you going completely DRM-free, although I didn't mind the key either.
      Having a lot of fun with the game, glad I backed it!

    10. Creator Robbie Van de Motter on October 15, 2013

      I'm still waiting on my copy of the game, regardless of drm.

    11. Creator Grenville Wilson on October 15, 2013

      I'm using the Steam version, but you are still cool guys for listening too and caring about your backer's input. Seriously, you guys are awesome.

    12. Creator J.R. Riedel on October 15, 2013

      Excellent. I'll redownload it tonight.
      I don't care about the DRM, but I do care about the bug fixes.
      Thanks for the update.

      Where can i download the drm free version? I received and email with a steam key and links to the artbook and the soundtrack, but without any link to the drm free version.
