    Funny, but people will just wait for the genuine one to be cracked and re-download that one

    Not as if they didn't take the exact same concept from another game or anything.

    soooo, interesting thought. They say 93% of their launch was pirates, will their company go bankrupt as depicted in their title?
    Would that player base move to purchasing their game if they weren't dealing with a tweaked version that forced failure?
    I'm not defending piracy but I do think there's an over reaction towards piracy and a failure for companies to look at themselves for blame when things go wrong.

    I have not heard about this one before.

    BTW. Did their website just go down ?

    EDIT:
    Might even buy this one (only 8€) because of the laughs from this joke. :)

    Yeah...been playing that for hours on my Note 2.
    I was actually thinking it was the same game as the mobile one from the same devs but nope, a rip-off.

    Funny yet someone will realease a crack/fix that fixes that and then who will be laughing?

    Stuff is pirated so much cause this constant drm crap, and
    CD Projekt Red Studio creator of witcher are the only people that realize this. DRM junk only hurts the people that buy the stuff people that pirate it it means nothing too seeing most likely have the drm removed anyway. Im all for protecting your stuff but when your DRM cause more issue and harm then good to the people that actual buy the stuff. then the people who pirate it and dont have to deal with the drm then you have a problem you created your self.

    i dont think they need to apologize at all. They are asking for what they deserve. Theres nothing wrong with it.

    Their stance is against DRM and provide the user a DRM-free game. Against DRM does not make them a pro-pirate game company. They should be against pirates.

    @chanw4, I agree. I don't see anything wrong with simply sending a letter to the people who pirated the game.(especially if its a very large amount of pirated copies)
