“Game Dev Tycoon” fights fire with fire
Yesterday Greenheart Games released their latest game, Game Dev Tycoon, where you manage a team of [drum roll] game developers.
To spice up the release they themselves released copies of the game on The Piratebay, for Windows, Mac and Linux. The releases aren’t perfect, though. After a while the company goes bankrupt due to piracy. The results are amazing. Pirates ask forums why their companies go bankrupt, no matter their play style.
The only winning move is to pay.
Or… download a working crack, but I’ll stick to the first option.
I haven’t actually played the game yet, but I played Game Dev Story for iOS/Android and loved it, so I have high hopes for this one.
