- When Game Dev Tycoon (a Game Development Simulation Game) was released, its developer released a cracked version on BitTorrent simultaneously.
- After a certain point in the game, the cracked version would prevent the player from generating simulated revenue due to simulated piracy.
- Many comments of people using the cracked version arrived on forums asking why their game would not take off and how to get rid of simulated piracy in the game.
- Analysis of the usage shows that 214 genuine version where used/purchased against 3104 cracked version (93.6%)
Oh, the irony. And the sheer brilliance of the game devs. Check the full story for some hilarious responses from the pirates.
