PUBG is now a feat for any game without the words “Grand Theft Auto”, “Mario”, “Call of Duty” or Pokemon in the name, or it might even threat that AAA title.

There’s only one game similarly released unfinished before its rise to fame, “Minecraft”. but even Minecraft didn’t initially have viral popularity like this:

200K peak players left to “All-Time Highest Concurrent Player Count” and 4M copies left for “The Top 50 Best-Selling Games of All-Time”. Will this juggernaut train stop?

Darkwood Dev Uploaded The Full Game to Pirate Bay

The developer of the top-down horror game Darkwood, has uploaded the full game in to Pirate Bay. The game it self is cheap, but they said they wanted to make their game to “everyone can play”, despite rich or poor.

Steam lets you refund a game if you haven’t played it for more than 2 hours, and as a developer we can see the reason why people refunded it. When we read the explanation from someone who wrote that he needed the refund because he didn’t want his parents to be stressed out when seeing the bill at the end of the month… well, it made us feel quite bad, So we decided to do something about it! If you don’t have the money and want to play the game, we have a safe torrent on the Pirate Bay of the latest version of Darkwood (1.0 hotfix 3), completely DRM-free. There’s no catch, no added pirate hats for characters or anything like that. We have just one request: if you like Darkwood and want us to continue making games, consider buying it in the future, maybe on a sale, through SteamGOG or Humble Store.” 

No catch, but one request: “Please, please, don’t buy it through a key reselling site. By doing that, you’re just feeding the cancer that is leeching off this industry.”

Buy the full game on: SteamGOG or Humble Store. Or get it from Torrent provided by the developer.
