Chris from Introversion has released a diatribe on the IV forum in response to a post at RockPaperShotgun. It's basically a realistic perspective on how they view piracy as an Indie developer and how it's affected them. Full article is here. Below is an extract: One school of thought would have you believe that the future of PC Gaming is already in the gallows, whereas another would suggest that PC Gaming will never die, as it's a safe-haven for Indie developers and will ascend again as High Street Retail continues to recede. Personally, reading Chris's post has kind of inspired me to stop [pirating games]. I used to convince myself with a "I make games, therefore I can pirate them" mentality but it's time I grew up, I think, and started supporting the industry which butters my bread. DRM is a totally other issue which Chris also talks about and I'll save my opinions on that for a later post. As the title suggests, lets try and keep this discussion mature. So, what do people think?
