'Piracy can't be stopped' - Dead Trigger dev

Dead Trigger developer Mad Finger Games has spoken out on the issue of piracy, and how it simply will not stop.

Mad Finger is giving away its zombie shooter Dead Trigger for free on iOS and Android to avoid giving pirates the pleasure.

In a Gamezebo post, studio head Marek Rabas explained, "Games are always stolen, there is not much we can do about it. I do not believe that piracy can be stopped."

Rabas continued, "Just imagine if the piracy rate was 9:1 and 10 players played your game. It would be enough to convince at least one pirate user to buy your game and 'voila!', immediately you would have double your money."

"Our main goal is not to make lots of money, we do not want to be the second Disney or sell out the company for millions of dollars. Also, we do not have to please investors each financial quarter with better results on their profit. We just simply enjoy making games."

"We need help with security from the companies who make the hardware. Their hardware is selling because of our content, and they should protect our games from being stolen."

Thanks Eurogamer.
