Arma 3 developers Ivan Buchta and Martin Pezlar continue to be held in a Greek prison awaiting trial, and have released a letter 81 days after their imprisonment. Read it in full below.

The letter can be read in full at the HelpIvanMartin site set up by Bohemia Interactive developers eager to see the pair freed. The letter was published alongside a 150-strong protest outside the Greek embassy in Prague. The demonstration was organised Mafia developer at 2K Czech Daniel Vávra in a bid to encourage the developer’s release.

The letter reads, “After tiring two months it is important for us to hear (well, read) words of encouragement and to learn we are not forgotten. We are treated well, but we feel we should rather be with our families than here.

“Your effort makes it easier to handle: we enjoy the postcards, community news, pictures and puzzles which are being regularly send by this website’s magnificent staff, It seem that it will take some time before we could return home and there is certainly much to overcome.

“We do our best to stay optimistic and use this time well: we read, we walk, we chat and discuss and Martin even does some pt. We’ve already walked hundred of kilometres, read thousands of pages, but our thoughts are always with our families, friends and people who help us in any way.”
