I read these comments with my mouth open. I beg you research the word "piracy". Actually never mind I'll give you the definition as you might twist it, like your twisted mind. "the unauthorized use or reproduction of another's work.". Greenheart Games made a copy of their game to stop piracy of their game and in my eyes successfully did so. If someone downloaded this copy, they had the intent to play the game without paying for it and thus are a "pirate". It does not matter if the official developer of the game released this modified copy with the intent of stopping pirates, people did not know this and thus match the definition of "pirates".
I think it was genius and I will admit, even though I downloaded the game from a torrenting site and did not play it, for the reason of not having money to do so, that makes me a pirate and after reading their blog post, I proceeded to buy it on Steam for feeling bad. Does that justify my "piracy"? Absolutely not but I did support a game that I liked and supported a great company.
I don't know if your intent was to troll people with your comment, but please do research when criticizing a company on their ways before doing so.
As for Greenheart Games, you have my sincerest apologies for pirating the game. I hope me buying it, helps you on your developing path.
