Game is DRM free according to the developers (which is great and I love), however every time you load your game you start as a new character when playing offline (with -epicportal parameter mentioned by a Coffee Stain Studio developer) with a different player name.  You then have to find and kill your old character and take all their stuff and re-set up your hotbar.

Please add support for setting your player name in game and running the game fully with all features without epic launcher.

It is DRM free, it would not run without Epic, otherwise.

The login is Epic account recognition. Which it needs, seeing that you can switch between single player and multiplayer, with a setting. So unless they add a way to permanently make a singel player save, it will stay that way.

Early access will require DRM.

After full release DRM will not be required.

Actually the developers themselves said that the game is DRM free in the update 3 is delayed video.  They said you can copy the game into a new directory and play it that way without epic (they mention using the -epicportal parameter).  They suggested this as one way to stay on a previous update.  Yet it doesn't work fully because a new character is created every time you load your game.

Just adding a player name setting in game would fix this.
