If you buy Monaco from the site it's DRM free
If you buy Monaco from the site it's DRM free and it comes with the ability to play through Steam. My question is though, I'm dumb, I don't play new PC games very often so I don't quite understand what DRM is? I know it can limit the number of installs and can enforce being always connected to the internet. Does Monaco have that in the Steam version?

No it doesn't. The steam version is technically DRM free. You can move the instal files from computer to computer and not need steam to launch the game - you will need steam to play online though.

Wait, you can transfer the files from an account to another and play on both account at the same time?

No not account to account. From computer to computer. You dont need steam to even launch the game.

For instance, if you bought a new computer, you could put Monaco on the new computer without having to pay for it again, if that's what you mean.

Would Steam make you pay for it again though?

You can launch the game files without Steam. Steam is only required to play online because Monaco uses the Steam matchmaking system. Steam won't make you pay for it again once it is on your account.

You can have a steam game installed on as many PC's as you like. You can install and uninstall it as much as you like. You can play in offline mode so don't always need an internet connection. The only limitation on that is that steam will need to authorise games at least once every 30 days. You don't notice it doing that but if you run a steam account in offline mode for more then 30 days it will ask you to go online at least once.

Steam is DRM, but DRM that also updates games for you and gives you good community features and that. It's the acceptable face of DRM done right really.

Steam is a downloading service with optional DRM. Developers can choose not to use the DRM check (as in this case)

That's a great tidbit to know, I'd love to test this on my roomates PC however I wouldn't suggest for him to buy a title that I don't know will work. However if this game had local/online MP... (Seriously does anyone know about some.....launch.... cooddesss...) I know I know >_<. Just want it so bad.
