Machinarium, offers $5 amnesty sale to those who pirated their game


Adventure game Machinarium focuses their attention to those who pirated the game by offering amnesty sale and a chance to redeem yourself. Game is now available for 5$ (it used to be 20$). Soundtrack included!

“We released the game DRM-free which means it doesn’t include any anti-piracy protection, therefore the game doesn’t bother players serial codes or online authentication, but it’s also very easy to copy it,” Amanita’s Jakub Dvorsky explained. “Our estimate from the feedback is that only 5-15 percent of Machinarium players actually paid for the game.”
