Stardock Releases “Customer Report”

October 24, 2008

Just got an email in my box from Stardock, publisher of Galactic Civilizations, Sins of a Solar Empire, the upcoming DemiGod, and the Gamer’s Bill of Rights (not a game), a document that is somewhat anti-DRM, a rare stance found among PC-only game companies (or any company in particular, for that matter).

They have released the 2008 customer report, a business document that’s a little dry but full of plenty of information. Much of the info is old, but interesting stuff that seems to be new is the customer survey, what they consider legitimate and illegitimate DRM concerns, and the problems and feedback they’ve received on their Steam-like distribution platform, Impulse.

It keeps crashing in my browser, so you may just wish to download it instead of just opening it. Not a customer but interested anyway? Read on.
