Rime was released last week and on PC the game uses the Denuvo DRM. The games developer has announced that it will drop the DRM if the Rime is cracked.
In a post on Steam, Tequila Works, Rime’s developer, have confirmed that they used the Denuvo DRM to “ensure the best gaming experience.”
“Rime is a very personal experience told through both sight and sound,” the Tequila works went on. “When a game is cracked, it runs the risk of creating issues with both of those items, and we want to do everything we can to preserve this quality in Rime.”
The developer has said that they remains committed to the DRM and its stance. They have acknowledge however that “nothing is infallible.” If Rime does get cracked, Tequila Works will release a Denuvo-free version of Rime “and update existing platforms.”
