Combining action and strategy in a unique way, Sang-Froid: Tales of Werewolves transports you into an epic folktale co-written with best-selling Canadian author Bryan Perro (Amos Daragon, Wariwulf), in which two feuding brothers will have to put aside their differences to save their sister, who is pursued by the Devil himself! This time however, sheer brute strength won't be enough to save the day as your enemies are way stronger than you are. Only your wits and the ability to combine ingenious traps to setup deadly ambushes will give you a chance to see the sun rise again on your frozen piece of forest...

I'll buy this game when it no longer requires Steam. It takes too long to pirate non-Steam copies (after legally purchasing the game) and, in my experience, they often don't run correctly. Please release a DRM-free version.
The combination Steam/Desura is the best for digital gamers ans Indie lovers!
Is the low rating for this game due to the fact that it isn't playable on Desura? This game is so much fun IMO. The soundtrack is amazing as well.
I bought it legit, but then pirated it so I didn't have to open that filthy piece of bloatware (steam).
I took a long hard belt off of my last 20oz of Dew and hastily wiped the Cheeto crumbs on my sweatpants. It was time to get serious. I was about to make a statement that would shake the foundation of the Indie Game Brotherhood. I was a modern day Robin Hood. I had to steal to stick it to Valve and it's putrid overlord Sir Gaben. Now everyone would know. Now that I have planted the seed of dissent women will openly weep in the streets and developers will reconsider their swearing fealty to Lord Gaben. We have won the battle and soon the war. - herbivore
I like steam :)
Why does everybody hate steam?
It seems like its trendy to hate Steam. Aside from some very user specific issues that some people have none of it makes much sense. Ive heard a lot of hollow DRM complaints but they never really have more substance than -DRM is bad-.. I love Steam and Desura. Id never be able to keep track of my games library without them. (Also, my keyboard is broken, apostrophies dont work)
On the contrary, it's trendy to like Steam. That should be obvious from the enormous number of people who buy on Steam every day.
It's only trendy to hate Steam if you refuse to see any faults with it, or don't consider other circumstances that give people reason to not like Steam. I.E., if you have perception bias.
Desura lets you chose to update your games, while Steam makes you do it not only for games but mods as well. Desura also doesn't require the client to be running to run your games, while Steam does; during holiday sales, I've had Steam stop working on me and kill my game .exe when it did so.
Moreover, it's illegal for a distro client to interfere with your ability to play a game or use software you legally paid for. That's why these distros have 'Offline Modes', and why Gabe and Valve fans keeps claiming, with no physical or written proof, that Valve has a grand kill switch to remove Steamworks DRM if the service ever went under.
There's plenty of reasons to hate Steam, and the only reason they're hollow to some is PC gamers are far too willing to accept this kind of thing from game makers, instead of refusing to buy from them.
I hate Steam because I still have dialup internet here in the middle of nowhere and Steam is the most dialup and data unfriendly service I have ever come across. It is so bad that I can't even login to their website to buy a game if I wanted to. I have well over 100 games and haven't been able to play any of them in over 7 years. Even when I could use it, I had to turn it off to actually use the internet as it constantly downloaded stuff 24 hours a day even if everything was updated. I will forever hate Steam and even when I get a high speed connection I will avoid Steam unless there is no other choice.
Valve added the option to disable auto-updates
You still have to have the client open to play your games though. That's the root problem there.
I'm not a Steam fanboy, but what you wrote is not entirely true. You can open any Steam game that doesn't have it's own DRM through Windows Explorer, like those bought in Humble Bundles. I just started Gemini Rue EXE in Steam folder to make sure and it worked.
That's the thing. There are too few games that allow that to make it a viable defense with Steam. Valve doesn't regulate DRM in the games they offer either, and as such, I've found Starforce/TAGES DRM in a few games they sell.
That's why I'm more of a Desura/GOG person, but when I see Steam keys being offered instead of DRM-free direct downloads from all these other services, which do offer DRM-free downloads, I have to call into question the dev team and why they're forcing this option.
Ok, thanks for responding!
