Tequila Works Would Remove Denuvo When Rime Is Cracked

A lot of big games and some of the smaller ones nowadays use some form of anti-tamper or copy protection tech in their games to prevent games being ripped and pirated online. Such protections have their upsides but also in the case of a few, legitimate players see them as being a bit of a barrier to them as well if the tech goes wrong.

 

So the news that developers of Rime, Tequila Works, might remove the Denuvo protection from the game if pirates manage to crack it is welcome to some but mainly confusing. It’s quite the surprising move, considering most companies wouldn’t touch it after the game was released unless it was negatively impacting on the game in some way.

 

This was announced over on Rime’s Steam forums by Tequila Works’ staff member Dariuas, who said that the inclusion of Denuvo had been a hotly debated topic in the studio. They decided to include it to “preserve [the] quality in Rime”, as cracking the game runs “the risk of creating issues” with the game’s graphics and audio, as well as being a way to stop pirated copies emerging of course.

 

However, if pirates do break though Tequila Works will “release a Denuvo free version of Rime and update existing platforms.” With Denuvo still being pretty good at keeping pirates out in the first month of a game’s sale but not so much beyond that after it’s been worked on, Rime could be going anti-tamper free sooner rather than later.

 

The responses to this have ranged from bemusement to utter outrage, with the Steam Thread being locked down due to the sheer amount of angry replies. Who knows how the move will work out in the long-term for them?

 

It’s probably going to lead to a lot of pirated Rime online in just over a month though…
