Hello everyone, Ben here, the developer behind The Eyes of Ara.
I have been asked to clarify the situation with DRM free copies.
Basically, I'm a one-person studio, so in order to keep things manageable for launch the game has initially been distributed just through Steam. I have now begun looking into getting DRM free versions out there (such as through Humble or GOG), and should have an update on that soon.
Also, the game itself is actually DRM free, Steam is just used to distribute it. However I understand that a lot of people don't like using Steam at all, so I do want to make sure there are other options available to people.
If you have any other questions or feedback on the game, feel free to ask
