Today on Bud’s Weekly Geek-out . . . Game Dev Tycoon is an $8 game which lets you pretend to be a game developer in the ’80s.
The same day the game’s creators released their game, they also released a CRACKED version to see how many people would download it illegally.
The cracked version was exactly the same as the paid version, except, after a number of hours have been sunk into growing your little gaming empire, your company starts suffering crippling losses of revenue because PEOPLE ARE PIRATING YOUR GAMES.
Hilarious, but not a solution to the sad fact that only 6.4% of their players after the first day had purchased their game legally. =( Bud
