'Digitanks' Developer Wants You To Pirate His Game In Protest Of SOPA

Digitanks is a turn-based artillery strategy game that modernizes the artillery genre with a strategy aspect in a 3D environment. Tactical thinking is crucial as the player controls anything from a single unit to a large fleet of tanks. Play offline skirmishes or online battles against your friends, or enemies.

Digitanks developer Lunar Workshop is taking a novel approach to protesting SOPA. Instead of blanking out his site, he's encouraging users to pirate the game for the day.

Today is Internet Blackout Day, in protest of SOPA. To do my small part in the protest I encourage everybody to pirate Digitanks for free. If this legislation passes then I won’t be able to make a living on the internet, so you may as well pirate my games. You can find a pirated version of Digitanks here.

I’m not asking you to buy the game if you like it. Hell I’m not even asking you to play it. Just download it, and pass the word on to your friends. There is no DRM on the original version of Digitanks, so this is really just the install files from the game, same as you would get if you bought it.

“But wait Vino,” I hear you say. “It’s not really pirating if you pirate your own game, is it?” My response to you is, “Shut up you nut fucker and pirate my damn game.” Or do you like SOPA?

Also, I am inviting all creators of indie games to join me today. Offer your games free for today. It’s a good way to gain attention to the cause of keeping the internet a good place. If we all do it, people will take notice.

(Of course, I use the term “good” loosely. I’m looking at you, 4chan.)
