The Breakout Games group sells the pizza to a title grid - with the consent and blessing of its creators. Is this the beginning of a wonderful friendship?
Usually, we find those who invest their time, money and experience in creating games and those who invest their time and abilities to break through and allow their distribution and free download from both banks of the gaming world, conflict and constant quarrels. But it turns out that sometimes it is also possible a little differently - in a method that will benefit both sides.
A breakthrough group called REVOLT, headed by a man named Voksi (famous for overcoming the fourth-generation Denuvo's defense), has released a special pirate version of a serious action game called Serious Sam's Bogus Detour, launched last year and offered as part of the Steam platform And the GOG store - when the change is That the distribution was approved by Crackshell developer.
Despite positive reviews from those who had experienced it, Serious Sam's Bogus Detour was not a big deal in the crowded gaming market and remained a losing investment - which brought the hacker in question (who was very fond of Serious Sam games over the years and even took part in the beta exams) For the pirate crowd.
The game was offered for download in a pirated version that is popular with a large audience of consumers who do not pay for their gaming, along with an appeal to their consciences and a request to legally purchase the title to support the creators, after downloading and experimenting without any obligation - something that also appears in a text line in the game itself, this.
It is difficult to assess whether this approach will really make Serious Sam's Bogus Detour a success story, but we will hold on to it - and hope that it will bring more artists to try to collaborate with this non-traditional audience rather than ignore it or try to eliminate it. .
It's worth mentioning that we've also seen the developers of the Darkwood horror-horror game offer a free download through the BitTorrent platform for those who did not have enough money to buy during the last year - so maybe it's a mini-revolution? You are invited to tell us what you think about the reactions.
