00:00 Good Robot DRM test.
This test is also open to those of you who don’t listen to the show. All you need is two computers: One with Steam installed, and one without. Just email the show (address is in the header image) and put “Good Robot DRM Test” in the subject line. I’ll send you a key for Good Robot. Install the game using Steam, then copy the files to the Steam-free PC and try to run it.
Email me the results. Did it work? If not, what was the error message? Also, please include the country where you’ll be doing the test.
