Gamer Australians should pirate Hotline Miami 2 following ban, says dev



SOURCE


Quote:
Many folk are understandably miffed that Hotline Miami 2 has been refused classification in Australia. Following the Classification Board's confirmation yesterday came an official response from publisher Devolver Digital claiming the offending material had been misrepresented. Now a spokesperson from studio Dennaton Games has gone one step further, suggesting Australians should go ahead and pirate the game.

Additional Information:

Game: Hotline Miami 2
Developer: Dennaton Games
Release Date: 2015 Q1


I actually like the approach the developers have taken, it shows that they care about their fans and community as they even suggest them to pirate the game due to the ban issued to the game in Australia.


Please discuss this in a civil way as this is a subtle subject.

Before anyone thinks it is OK to pirate this game or any other it is not.

Yes the lead designer Jonatan Söderström has said "If it ends up not being release in Australia, just pirate it after release. No need to send us any money, just enjoy the game!" but the developer as a whole and more importantly the publisher has not.


Please do not admit to piracy, condone piracy or discuss your personal experience with piracy

Well, I feel like if they can't make money from the sell, they might as well. I would hate to put in all that work for someone to tell me it's not okay for my game to be released. If it's decent, it'll only help them in the future.

Yet again the Australian Classification Board strikes again, apparently introducing a R18+ classification for games didn't exactly help either.

here i was thinking that the r rating would of helped. why did they even bother bringing in R if they will just refuse classification to things

I like that people are coming out and doing this....been noticing more and more comedians saying this with their specials, "if you cant get it or afford it and want to see it, then go for it, I don't care, enjoy it!"

doesn't change what piracy is, but shows that not everyone is insane about it.

I am sorry, but when has publisher been more important than the developer? rolleyes.gif
