There's a forum thread about Steam dropping support for XP and Vista here

Unfortunately there is no strictly legal way to make a Steam game work without the Steam client unless Steam sells the game that way.
The above may no longer be the case according to the following
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pt9WdG_MeMY
However I'm not a lawyer and I'm not 100% sure how to interpret that.

The following is a link showing which Steam games don't require the client:
https://store.steampowered.com/curator/7540156-DRM-Free-Games/

If you want to play a game that requires the Steam client on your XP computer, you'll have to read up on "Steam emulators" on your own. I've heard of them, but have no experience with them. The "Steam emulator" fools the game into thinking Steam is running when it's the emulator that's running.

Keep in mind you may open yourself up to virus by downloading those things.
If you download anything claiming to be a Steam emulator, be sure to scan it with antivirus before installing it.

I suggest you watch someone else play the game on YouTube and give up on playing it on XP.

I agree with Jenny... trying to play the game on an operating system that is so old that it is no longer supported by anyone including STEAM might just not be the effort.

The game was made for XP/Vista/7 and I doubt Steam has bothered to update it.
It's the DRM that is no longer being supported.

But you knew about the DRM when you bought the game. When you did that,
you accepted Steam's restrictions.

If you want to play the game again, you'll have to do it on Windows 7, 8, or 10.

Yeah, I should have been clearer. Maybe samuel could find the game on disks to play on his old XP system.

If he does, he should be careful the disc version doesn't use Steam. The game is from 2014, and a lot of disc-based games from 2014 used Steam.

Samuel I'm sorry you won't be able to play the game on XP after 45 days, but you should be able to play the game next time you buy a computer. Maybe you want to play it before Steam shuts down support.

Offline mode won't continue working.
It will time out.
Let us know if you manage to keep it working past 2 weeks.

There's an interesting Reddit thread here about this issue.

Some say games only worked for two weeks, others say the games worked indefinitely. I guess some or all of it depends on what if any DRM the game has.

There is at least one proposed workaround that I certainly never would have thought of.

Check the info here
https://steamcommunity.com/discussions/forum/1/360672047212137212/

This info is from 2017, and may not work if Steam has changed their system since then.
