Team Meat doesn’t effing care about piracy

Team Meat voiced an unusual opinion about Super Meat Boy’s piracy levels and said a swear! We like that kind of thing.

“Our game was hugely pirated – we don’t fucking care,” Tommy Refenes and Edmund McMillen said during the latest Dark Zero podcast, as reported by RockPaperShotgun.

“If there are let’s say 200,000 copies of Super Meat Boy that are getting passed around for free, that’s 200,000 people who are playing the game.

“If they like this game there’s a really high probability of their friends coming around and seeing it or them posting about it on their blogs. And it’s not cool to go round and say I really like this game that I stole, so they’re not going to say that. So it’s going to come around to sales.”

Thanks, Gamefront.
