Digital Eel Developers Discuss Indie Gaming
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

indiePub Games has posted a new interview with Digital Eel's Rich Carlson, Ikka Keränen and Bill "Phosphorous" Sears. The indie developers discussed a variety of topics including their favorite games, the contribution of modders, and their stance on DRM.

Why the "NO DRM" button at the top of the site?

PHOS: That’s their - the overlords - second rule.

IK: That went up there at a time when mainstream DRM systems were getting so Draconian that it was actually unsafe to legally install some commercial games - from Sony installing rootkits to Starforce destroying your CD drive. They may have gotten better since then but it's still a selling point that our software doesn't contain any nasty surprises.

RC: We don't support Draconian Digital Rights Management schemes or software. We want folks to be able to transport, archive, install and uninstall Digital Eel games as freely and simply as possible, with no hassles and no Big Brother.
