Raji: An Ancient Epic, a game that feels like a mix between Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris and Prince of Persia, has just been released on Steam. However, it appears that its DRM prevented a lot of gamers from actually playing it. As such, Nodding Heads Games has decided to completely remove the game’s DRM.
As Nodding Heads Games stated:
“The point of DRM is always a very sensitive topic for gamers. DRM can be vital to developers as it slows down the more unscrupulous types from pirating the game. However, even the best of DRM will have its issues. Sometimes it can block honest players who have done nothing wrong, or sometimes it can harm the game’s performance. That said, we want to be clear that our DRM did not impact performance, something we are very proud of.
With that said, looking at the feedback of our community, we saw that there were too many players that had purchased the game and were unable to play it – an unacceptable situation to everyone who works on the game. Then, we also had the players that for personal reasons extremely dislike DRM due to the reputation and nature of it, something that we have nothing against at all. After all, we are gamers at heart as well and can understand some of the sentiments behind it.
So, after listening to what our community has had to say, and after doing our best to try to help the innocent – but affected players – we made the decision (today) to remove the DRM from our game with this update. All you need to do is update the game and it will be gone.”
This is definitely good news as the game has already been cracked. Thus, its DRM was only hurting its legitimate customers. Thankfully, though, Nodding Heads Games was quick to react. Additionally, the team has fixed an exploit that allowed players to defeat the Chieftain very easily.
As always, Steam will download this first update for Raji: An Ancient Epic the next time you launch its client!
