Some games on Shiny Loot are DRM-free, some require one time key validations. In both cases you shouldn't have to worry about not being able to play the game down the road because we absolutely don't sell games that add SecuROM, Tages, etc. nor do we sell any games that require Steam.
Shiny Loot does not have a client. Basically when you buy a game (or bundle in this case) you will get access to download links on your 'my games' section. Click to download the installer or zip and you'll be good to go. I think it's a very easy, painless process. I encourage you to come back here and post your feedback if you do decide to make a purchase. All the games in this bundle are DRM free.
As for us potentially not being around in a few years because we're new (as mentioned before you)...I know this is easy to say but I feel you can be less concerned with us in that regard vs. other start-ups. I've taken steps to ensure the fixed cost of running Shiny Loot is rather minimal. That means we won't be throwing multi-thousand dollar parties at PAX, but that's what you get for security! Obviously the better we do the more games and deals you will see in addition to other enhancements, like improving our trait-based filtering.
Remember, we're in beta...in fact roughly just a month into our open beta. We will consider anything that makes us a superior choice. The only things we won't stray from is focusing on indie games and offering only games that at least offer a minimal to no DRM download. So every bit of feedback here, even if not specifically for us, is really being considered.
So If i pick up that bundle i wont have to worry about not being able to install them on the new computer i'll be getting in a month or two right? I glanced at the individual items and it says 'protection type: none' Im assuming that means theres no DRM junk or anything right? Just wanted to make sure before i pick it up. I didn't want to get an install limit or something when i try to set it up on the new system later. If so i guess this would be a good opurtunity to try out this company
Also was wondering if these support controllers or anything. Playing 16 bit style classics like this with a keyboards kinda meh. I dont see any info on that on the game pages themselves.
