Hotline Miami 2 Dev to Australians: "Just Pirate It"

Via reddit, there's word on Ars Technica confirming a practical, if profit-eating response from the developer of Hotline Miami 2 to the game being refused classification in Australia. "If it ends up being not released in Australia, just pirate it after release," designer Jonatan Söderström wrote in an email reply. "No need to send us any money, just enjoy the game!" Devolver Digital confirmed for Ars this is genuine, and Fictional Devolver CFO Fork Parker tweets a confirmation that this is legit as well. "He’s said similar things in the past," a Devolver Digital PR rep told Ars. "And yes, I can confirm he wants people to enjoy the game."

Zero interest in the game, but mad props to them for this move.
"Van Gogh painted alone and in despair and in madness and sold one picture in his entire life. Millions struggled alone, unrecognized, and struggled as heroically as any famous hero. Was it worthless? I knew it wasn't."

I think I'm going to go out of my way and buy it because of the sentiment behind the comments to pirate it.

F$*k yeah... Our govt is really completely clueless when it comes to the borderless internet..

onya, Fictional Devolver for not giving a f$(k and rather than modifying a game for our nanny country, those small amounts of lost sales can be used as a promotion to motivate other people to buy it..

Well done!

That made me laugh.

Still working out for Australian gov't tho. They're denying those devs the money, even if the game will get in the hands of some enterprising torrenters.
If Russia stops fighting, the war ends. If Ukraine stops fighting, Ukraine ends. Slava Ukraini!
