Creator of McPixel giving his game away for free on Pirate Bay.

#1 Edited by SecondPersonShooter (580 posts) -

If you look at the front page of Pirate Bay this morning, you can see Sos, the creator of McPixel has typed out a message to anyone interested in McPixel stating that he is giving his game out for free today, and would respect any donations that people would like to throw his way.

So if anyone wanted to play McPixel but didn't have the money, here's your chance to do it without feeling like a complete asshole.

Edit- Link to the McPixel website with details of promotion

Didn't one of the founders of Pirate Bay get arrested in Cambodia?

Yeeeeeeahh, maybe I'll just wait and see if if gets greenlit on Steam and buy it instead.

This coming right around the time another thread was made talking about how if you use torrents you are being watched. ITS A TRAP

if he's giving a link on his site I don't think it would matter

It should be free anyways but good on him I guess.

That's awfully nice of him. Just for that I threw him 11 bucks. Check it, I'm on second place of the leaderboard thingy! Yay me!

If you like the game vote for it on steam greenlight.

He got an amazing reaction on reddit when he commented on a torrent basically saying "I understand you guys downloading this here, but remember that I'm a one man band not a big corporation, so throw some money my way if you can". That has obviously lead to this.

Some bastard has ousted me to third place by paying two dollars more than me! here I thought I was being clever by doing the Price Is Right and going one dollar over! THE FIEND!

I hate to admit it, but I torrented it a while ago (though after he made that comment on the torrent). I just felt that $10 was too much for a game that I saw myself easily getting frustrated/bored with (and indeed I've barely played it). However I just threw him a couple dollars for being an awesome person. As a game developer myself I only hope that I'm as chill as him when I see someone torrenting MY games.

I have to imagine this will do wonders for his chances in Steam Greenlight.
