Startling opinion: Game dev says it’s OK to steal his games… sometimes

In what can only be described as the most charitable, spiritual and non-secular opinion I’ve ever heard from the games industry, developer Jeff Vogel from Spiderweb Software made a blog post all about how he doesn’t mind his games being pirated in certain instances. In fact, it almost sounds like he’s encouraging it sometimes. When you sort through all of the points he makes, it essentially boils down to the fact that he’d rather have someone who genuinely can’t afford to buy games pirate the game and play it rather than have them not play it at all. He finishes it up by saying that, if you can genuinely afford to buy his games, however, he’d really prefer you did that. You know, I honestly can’t argue with any of that. Anyway, check out the blog post here.
