Anyone know if the GG version is a steam key? It says Other DRM on GG, not sure what that means.

It seems that it is not redeemable on Steam.

Arcen's games are DRM-free. If you launch through Steam (and have the game purchased through Steam) you can get Steam achievement tracking, but even on a Steam install you can just launch the game .exe itself.

ANY key you get should work fine with copies of the game downloaded from Arcen's website itself (http://arcengames.com/w/index.php/games/avww-features).

Based off the Arcen Games site, the GG version will BE a Steam key, eventually.

Right now, it only works for the actual game itself (not Steam redemption). But the devs have spoken with Valve's Steam division and are working on getting their keys added to the database.

So feel free to play without Steam for now. Based off of previous experience (AI War) achievements will be mirrored by Steam, even if you get them when not on Steam. Just get any achievement once you are able to play via Steam, and the previously unlocked ones will unlock on your Steam profile.

You are correct. (One the first part, at least... I assume you're right on the second as well.)
