Although we at BolehVPN are a big supporter of P2P, we always believe that good game developers should be rewarded and that their games should be bought! Gone are the days where digital distribution was not as widespread and games won’t be available via the legal channels. Now, as someone who is earning a decent income, it is only fair that I put my dollars to where I think they are deserving.
Game Dev Tycoon, had an interesting way to educate players on this by sneaking into the pirated version of the game, a message:
Slowly their in-game funds dwindle, and new games they create have a high chance to be pirated until their virtual game development company goes bankrupt.
In fact, the real life company that released this game showed that over 90% of people who played this game had pirated it!
If you liked to read their official post on this, continue on here. I haven’t personally had the chance to try this game out but just maybe I’ll give it a go . Pretty ingenious marketing on their part!
