Game developer pranks software pirates

This is so great. Don’t steal, people.

    What’s a little more ironic is the long thread of comments on Reddit that claim that this game is nothing more than a clone of Game Dev Story.

      sort of yes and no actually. Execution on the core concept is differentiated and then there is the whole platform difference and what that entails (controls etc)

    It’s a Game Dev Inception! Studio that stole the game idea complains about pirates who complain about in-game pirates! Someone should make a movie about this (and steal a script for it from a writer).

      If basic concepts were THAT worthy of protection, we’d all still be using CP/M. Or worse. :)

    So meta, I love it. The comments from people that pirated are classic! “Waaaah please help me overcome this crippling piracy problem” .

    Schadenfreude is delicious in the morning with some brown sugar on top. OOH! Brown sugar why do you taste so good! Sing with me now
