    Default [Blog] Are indie developers leading the way when it comes to combating piracy?

    Hey everyone, I've written a new blog about games prices, indie developers and piracy. If you have any comments on any of these issue's it would be great to hear them.

    A couple of things to consider:

    That bundle has the proceeds going to charity so it is difficult to say whether it sells enough to pay rent.

    This has also been done with Championship Manager 2010.

    A stolen copy isn't necessary a loss sale.

    There have been cases where a free game has been pirated.

    You might need to make the blog link a bit more apparent.

    The slight blue on white doesn't seem to stand out.

    Anyways...off to read the blog!

    I heard the person paying can choose how much of it goes to charity. So they can be a semi-mean ******* and choose not to have any go towards charity or they can go for the Mother Teresa achivement and choose to have all of it go towards chairty.

    So it is. My bad.

    Also, from a quick search, it looks like World of Goo was already on a pay as much as you want since release so it be worthwhile to get some more research from that.

    I've now made the link bold so it's easier to see.

    Indeed, when you go to the payments section you can choose for it all to go to charity, all to developers, split or a custom value.

    Personally myself I'm all for indie titles and companies because there are a lot of really cool, really clever and really fun game ideas out there and you know that your money is going to pay those people for their hard work, rather than paying some corporate middle men.
