'Darkwood' Devs Upload Their Game To Torrent Site
Darkwood is a spooky top-down survival horror game from indie developer Acid Wizard Studio. Normally, it would set you back $14.99 on Steam, but you can download it for free right now on The Pirate Bay, PC Gamer reports. "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," Acid Wizard Studio says on Imgur. Why is it giving the game away? The team says it's fed up with the practice of key reselling. That's when someone claiming to be a YouTuber or blogger scams a key from a developer or publisher, then sells it through a shady platform.
The studio says if you do download the game, however, it has one request: "If you like Darkwood and want us to continue making games, consider buying it in the future, maybe on a sale, through Steam, GOG or Humble Store. But please, please, don't buy it through any key reselling site. By doing that, you're just feeding the cancer that is leeching off this industry."
