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."

Do you define it by your own personal standards? Are you God? Are you Better than everyone else? Do you feel that the cartoonists in Paris had it coming to them for making fun of God, Jesus and Mohammad? I find your comment on the whole offensive and would like nothing more than for it to be removed and censored. Lucky for you there is this thing called the Constitution protecting your rights to say stupid shit like that with complete impunity. Lucky bastard....

I define it by societal standards. The values that democratic nations hold as a society.

Am I God? Am I better than anyone else? Are you serious when you ask these questions? Am I God when I speak out against the rape of a child? No, I'm merely expressing the values that are held by current society. Does one have to be God to have human empathy? I wouldn't think so.

Do I think Charlie Hebdo employees had it coming to them? No, of course not. They were fully in the right when they published illustrations since the the publications were not disallowed by the society in which they were published.

You find what I said offensive? I don't see how, but it doesn't matter what you think. It doesn't even matter or what I think. What matters is the opinion of a democratic society as a whole.

"[P]rotecting your rights to say stupid shit like that with complete impunity." You don't have to remind me that there's never any shortage of people, like you, who will defend those capitalizing on products that simulate and allow others to engage in crimes such as rape and murder. I'm always glad the Constitution is there for people like you too. Don't you see, we're both victims of the democratic process?

I hate to play the "for the children" card, but by your logic anyone who rapes a child should be allowed to do so because none of us can determine moral from immoral. What you are saying is, no one should be allowed to play God so we should leave the [in]action to the individual. That isn't a society--that's anarchy. There has to be boundaries.

Oh such arguments! Did you just completely disregard and miss my pont and call me a child rapist?? Its so refreshing when you dont have to argue with anyone anymore while they simply invent their own moral high ground. You dirty Alien loving moral crusader you!
I have a nifty blue line!
