Denuvo Anti-Tamper
I have seen some conversations about our use of Denuvo anti-tamper, and I wanted to take a moment to address it. We have had discussions about Denuvo internally, and one of the key points of all of those discussions have simply been, we want to ensure the best gaming experience for RiME players. RiME is a very personal experience told through both sight and sound. When a game is cracked, it runs the risk of creating issues with both of those items, and we want to do everything we can to preserve this quality in RiME.

We are very committed to this, but also to the simple fact that nothing is infallible. That being said, if RIME is cracked we will release a Denuvo free version of RiME and update existing platforms.

Hey guys,

While you don't have to agree with what I am saying, lets try to remain civil please? We made the decision to use Denuvo to protect the game getting pirated. That is the simple fact of it. Denuvo is not DRM, it is anti tamper software.

As I mentioned in the above post, if RiME gets cracked, we plan to update the versions across all platforms with the Denuvo free version of the game.

DRM = Digital Rights Management
Denuvo = Digital Rights Management

As a developer, you should stop blindly repeating silly business slogans.

this is beautiful
i wish i could frame that and hang it up in our living room over the chimney



but yeah, a general good advice is "dont make yourself enemies, when its not needed at all"
i can assure everyone in this thread that indie games dont need "anti temper software"

the amount of customers youll lose, bad rep you acquire and cost of the actual product outweights the anticipated gains by far


btw even the CEO of denuvo himself admits only the first 6 weeks after a release are critical for the finacial success of a game and are the main aim for denuvo "protection"

theres absolutely no sane reason for any game to have it after that time passed

I don't really get all the hate for Denuvo. It seems to be really tame compared to stuff like GfWL or having to create an account for some other stuff.

people also care about stuff like this more than ever, so the net effect is an equal amount of hate
