  • The Witness is Being Heavily Pirated Claims Creator

    Jonathan Blow made some comments on Twitter (via earlier that finds the Indie developer questioning his future in the industry. The culprit is once again the industry boogeyman, piracy.
    It seems The Witness is the #1 game on a certain popular torrent site. Unfortunately this will not help us afford to make another game!

    I'm glad that a lot more people will be experiencing the game! But I also want to be able to make another comparable game next! Just sayin'.

    Blow also mentioned how he doesn't really like to use DRM, but he is considering it for the future.

    To his and the game's credit, The Witness has been sitting on Steam's top seller's list for a number of days now. The game is priced at $40 (USD) and has the potential to offer roughly an hour for each dollar spent. That's a pretty damn good value proposition there, especially for a game that is already easily identifiable as one of the best games of the year.
