chui2chOverlord 1 and 2 for sure.
How do you know? Is it still the case?
I'm not sure because I can't find any information about this on the web.

https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/overlord-and-overlord-raising-hell-released-for-linux-some-thoughts-and-a-port-report.7694 According to the port report it was DRM free on their store. When you go to https://www.deliver2.com it does not show steam required, and the port came to steam at a later date. https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/overlord-overlord-raising-hell-and-overlord-ii-new-port-released-on-steam-for-linux.7727

Ah... I forgot to search right there on Gamingonlinux...
But my second question is still remain.
On deliver2.com for Overlord Raising Hell, there is this:
QuoteTo download and activate this game, you will need an internet connection and a free Steam account. If you do not already have a Steam account, please vist http://store.steampowered.com/about/ to create one.
For Overlord II, no information.

Seriously it's very unclear on the store page.
Maybe since the game is available on Steam now, DRM-Free download is not possible anymore?

I guess it could be, But overlord 2 and putty squad do not show that they require steam. and most of the games that do have a clear indication on the store page. http://www.deliver2.com/mxgp3--the-official-motocross-videogame shows that you get a steam key by the system requirements. You could contact their support about it?

I bought some games over the years directly from deliver2, among those Putty Squad, Oberlord and Overlord II. I have all 3 available as a DRM free download, Putty Squad for Linux, but Overlord and Overlord II for Mac.

You actually have to choose at the store page if the DRM free download should be Mac or Linux, and I missed that while buying the Overlords. I found out a lot later since I installed the Steam version right away and do not remember now if I ever tried to contact them about that.

But they clearly have DRM free downloads, as Aspyr have for those where they are the only publisher.

I think we are missing all Linux version on GOG where a porter-company has publishing rights, that could be do the contract with the original publisher, or maybe GOG can not provide the store infrastructure to figure out who will get paid when there is more than one publisher.

Good to know, thanks! I might buy it on Deliver2 then.

One of the few games I have finished multiple times. It was great but I see no need to buy it again.

Cyril commented on 19 May 2019 at 1:31 am UTC

It would be interesting to know if their other games are DRM-Free on this store, and clarify a bit the situation IMO.
