The Book of Unwritten Tales Patch; Piracy Plea

The Book of Unwritten Tales Website features a semi-recently released patch to update the retail boxed edition of this adventure game to version 1.03, noting that the digitally distributed editions of the game would update automatically. This forum post has the change list, and the download is mirrored on AtomicGamer and The Patches Scrolls. While writing this up, I came across a post in the game's forums about pirated versions of the game with an impassioned plea:

For a developer it is sad to see that only one day after the release of a game 50% of the web-site visitors come from warez and torrent sites. We know that we can't do anything about it technologically and we won't try, because we don't want to hurt honest buyers.

If you are somebody who thinks about downloading an illegal copy, please consider: We are not a big publisher or corporation. We are a small indie developer with less than a dozen employers. The Book of Unwritten Tales is our only product. We can't compensate losses with other game sales. So if you like the game, please buy it. It's the only way we could continue making games like that.

You can buy the game on our site. It is twice as long as many other adventure games (about 20 hours) and costs less than most. So please support a fair relationship between gamers and developers.
