    As a backer I guess youve been following this closer than myself. Any word from the developers on whether they are selling a DRM free version?

    The Kickstarter page says there will be DRM free versions available on GOG and Desura but I cant see any evidence of this being so.

    Anyone know if this is planned in the near future?

    Also, in case anyone is curious about the depth of the economic simulation, I found a station that was selling food at 20 and simultaneously buying at 33.

    I dunno. Maybe I need to get further into it. The largest fight so far for me was the boarding one. The skunk was able to kill cap ships pretty handily since they have no side turrets. I took one out...

    Regarding the drones, isn't it really lame that they just teleport back to your ship when you hit escape?
