Will Obduction ever be released on DVD? or will I always have to have a connection to STEAM?

For kickstarter backers that backed at a level to get the boxed version, there will be. Cyan said that they have no plans for a boxed version outside of that. And given the cost and effort that goes into that, I rather doubt it.

But if you don't want to be connected to Steam, you should go with the GOG version. It's DRM free, and doesn't require connection to anything after you download the install files.

I already purchased it, can I still get it from GoG?

You can launch the game without the Steam client on. Of course, you won’t get updates that way.

If you bought it on Steam, then no, I don't think GOG would let you download it for free.

I don’t think it’ll be available there any time soon, but it might be worth checking GOG Connect.

Now that I have looked into it a little more, It is available via GoG but it also looks like Steam is the better way since it automatically updates if needed.

Thanks for the responses.

FYI, GOG does offer their Galaxy client, which is optional. This functions similarly to Steam, as in it keeps your installed games up to date.
