List of DRM-free games | SteamWiki

This is a list of games and software available on Steam that do not require the use of the Steam client itself (after the game or software is downloaded using the client), do not contain any third-party DRM (Games for Windows – LIVE, Uplay, Denuvo, etc.), or the optional Valve CEG (Custom Executable Generation) Steam component, making them effectively launcher-free applications once downloaded. This means that you can copy the game folder anywhere you want to and launch the game directly without being online or having Steam or third-party software running.

Q: How do you determine if a game or software is launcher-free on Steam?
A: Install the game or software and run it online the first time (this step is important as this finalizes the installation). Shut down Steam and temporarily move all the files in the root Steam folder somewhere else, and rename/delete Steam.exe to something else temporarily. Locate game folder, find the program launcher .exe and run it. If the game doesn’t start, then it requires the client to be running; if the game starts, the game is launcher free.

Q: I did that, but it still won’t work.
A: If you have already tried the above, then try deleting steam_api.dll and SteamworksNative.dll, if present, from that game’s folder. NOTE: Some Steam DRM-free games (99 Spirits, War of Human Tanks) work only when steam_api.dll is present, so delete it only if the game doesn’t work with it present.

The games or software on this list do not have any DRM once they are installed which means that they do not require the Steam client to be played. Typically, you don’t have to tweak the games or software in order to run them wherever you want; the list will make notes of any exceptions.

The games on this list are games using Flash, Adobe Air or .NET (for simplicity bundled in this list for Flash games). All games using Flash, Adobe Air or .NET on Steam, including those not on this list, are Launcher-free.

Note – Multi-Platform: To play Flash games on platforms not officially supported by Steam, you can sometimes extract .swf files from the .exe of the Windows installation and use one of these .swf files to start the game on every platform with a flashplayer on it. A tool for extraction is e.g. exe2swf.

Every Paradox Development Studio game is DRM-free and even some they publish (Paradox Interactive).
Paradox stated many times their developed games are and will be DRM-free like this one post or by their CEO.

The games on this list are using DOSBox, an x86 emulator. All DOSBox games on Steam, including those not on this list, are Launcher-free.

Note – Multi-Platform: All DOSBox games can be played on various platforms and OSs by using the game data of the Windows installation and DOSBox itself. A simple DOSBox frontend in Java is e.g. DBGL (it contains DOSBox, too).

The games on this list do have the client DRM component of Steam and won’t run without Steam running in the background. However, the games can be made technically DRM-free after patching them.
Following criteria must be met for the games on this list:

Note: It is recommended to move the game to another directory before patching. If not, updating/checking the game files in Steam will remove the patch again. Sometimes it is necessary to replace just the .exe instead of patching the whole game.

These games normally require the Steam client to be running, but they can be made DRM-free by creating a text file called steam_appid.txt that contains the corresponding game’s Steam app ID number AND NOTHING ELSE. The steam_appid.txt file should be placed in the same folder as the game’s main program file.

The games on this list are run in an emulator and are therefore DRM-free.

The games on this list do require Games for Windows – LIVE in order to be played. However, you can create an offline account (this requires no contact data and no internet connection) in order to play the game offline and on every machine that has the GFWL components installed on it.

Note: A full installation of GFWL is not required, only a few components are necessary for the games on this list. An example of an partial installation of GFWL for Mortal Kombat can be found here. Also, Steam will install GFWL at first launch of the game, so if a “partial” installation is wished, do not launch the game in Steam to finalise the installation.

The games on this list may have DRM, but you can get a DRM-free copy of the game legally from the developers, the publishers or in a sort of Promotion.
