Requires PERMANENT Internet connection
Well I was interested but seeing that glaring requirement has completely turned me off from ever purchasing the game.

For those denying that it's not used for DRM purposes, please follow this link:

"Originally posted by His Majesty, the Lord of Space:

Furthermore, I found this thread with head developer literally saying it's for DRM purpose: http://www.minerwars.com/ForumTopic.aspx?id=95 see second post."

Same here. I won't avail this kind of abusive DRM.
nice catch, saved me $20

It's probably not a DRM per se but some MMO-base like in Diablo 3. D3 always failed and dropped out in the middle of a session. I don't mind the logging in once but don't wanna drop out of the game the whole time while playing. Sorry no offline mode means I'm not buying - a shame really.

@AJ Any requirement that forces you to have an internet connection is DRM. I will not support any company that has no offline mode for single player. For Eff's sake, it's single player. But yes, pass this around to those curious about the game and remind them of the horrid flop that D3 has faced because of always-on DRM.

Is the single player online though? Not sure how they are handling the game but I thought there was talk about it being an MMO type game.
Geomancy Games 2012年11月28日下午12:05 
@Va1n, Yes - even the single player requires online. Check at the bottom of the page under additional requirements.

I'm both glad and sad that I read this topic.. glad, because I refuse to buy a game with no offline functionality, so it prevented me from making a mistake.. sad because it looked really cool.. like it might remind me of the days of my youth spent playing Descent.

I never expected this from an indie, crowd-funded game. Deeply disappointed.. not just because I can't play, but disappointed in the developers.

Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks for the heads up. A shame.

Well, that's a pity. Their choice and I respect that. But in this case my money stays with me and I'll skip this game. That's my choice. Thanks for the warning.

Been collecting steam game for ages, I was going to stream and give away some copies on twitch BUT i don't support this type of drm, and Diablo 3 was truly garbage as top said, Thanks for the warning, you save me over 100 dollars. I would wait until it hits the sales bin christmas or spring for 5 dollars if thats the case.

Please pass this along. I see a lot of suckers supporting this type of draconian DRM. The developers have purposely hid this requirement deep and make no mention of it except in the fine print. This is absolutely disgraceful.
