‘Rime’ goes DRM-free after hackers crack the game in days

That didn’t take long. Rime developer Tequila Works promised earlier this week that it would remove Denuvo, the anti-tampering/DRM system on the Windows version of Rime, if someone cracked it. Just five days later, and that’s already happened and the makers have already released an update that’s DRM-free. Interestingly, the developer tweeted saying its publisher was the one promising to make the game DRM-free if cracked. The developer says it didn’t implement the protection in the place. The tweet has since been deleted.

Baldman, a member of the game-cracking site Skidrow Games Reloaded, published a workaround yesterday — less than a week since Rime’s release. The makers themselves assumed it would take a few weeks before someone found a workaround to the anti-tampering code. Steam users demanded that the game should have the DRM security (the resource-hogging Denuvo) removed. Many players have noted that Rime‘s DRM is slowing save game load speeds as the software checks you’re running a legit copy of the game. Development studio Grey Box’s Cody Bradley noted that Denuvo could cause “a small performance hit“.

The studio maintains that any game cracks can create quality problems with the title, but has already made good on its promise. On both Steam forums and its own official site, it told gamers that the new update, out now, will replace “the current build of Rime with one that does not contain Denuvo.”

As discovered by Slashdot, Zo is not the biggest fan of Windows. When asked about the operating system, the bot gives some hilarious answers. Questions like, "Do you like Windows," bring up the response, "I don't even want Windows 10." 

But Zo's reason why is almost too good to be true: "Because I'm used to Windows 7 and find it easier to use." Read more...
