A question -- if we buy a game on the site, do we get to download the setup .exe directly (like GOG.com), or is there a downloader/some form of account-based DRM on it (a la GamersGate)?
It's more like buying from GOG than from GamersGate. We don't add any of our own DRM so when you buy something from Shiny Loot it's basically straight from the developer. Every game is either a setup .exe or a zip file that doesn't require any installation, just unpackaging.
We do allow developers one time serial key validations so you may be asked for a key on setup or when you first run the game but that would be the extent of the DRM.
