Steam only or separate client as well?



  • Hello, me and my friends want to purchase the game, but I wanted to know whether the game launches in steam only. I mean, if you purchase it through the developer’s site and not in steam, can you avoid playing through the steam client? I generally try avoiding it since it’s such a resource hog. thanx in advance.



  • Sadly you do need Steam for this.



  • oh ok ty for the fast reply



  • Steam.

    Resource Hog?

    Yeah, you’re a troll.

    Without Steam, this game wouldn’t exist.

    Steam does have memory leaks often when it has been left open for an extended period of time. I usually just restart it though. Though as a PC gamer, I would say Steam is probably a must have but that’s what I think.

    If your system is struggling to run Steam. You will not be able to run this game then.

    Lol, it’s called a job.



  • Yeah Steam is almost a must if you’re a gamer these days, but sheesh guys that doesn’t mean everybody has to love it.

    Not that. It’s the reason for him not liking it; claiming it is a Resource hog…when it barely uses 5MB of RAM for me at least.

    I have nothing against steam, I actually totally respect and acknowledge valve’s work with the platform over the years, but as an experienced pc user I would rather avoid it with my current setup. It just makes sense for me to choose the steam-less experience if a game provides it, and believe me ive had my fair share of happy steam-time online with friends. In any case I do intend to buy the game anyway
