Amanita Announces Machinarium Pirate Amnesty Sale
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 9 comments

Amanita Design has announced a Pirate Amnesty Sale to encourage the purchase of its point and click adventure game, Machinarium. Until August 12 the game will be available for $5 rather than the usual $20. Amanita estimates that only 5 to 15% of players have paid for the game. Machinarium follows the adventures of a robot who must find a way to save his girlfriend and his city from a group of villains known as the Black Cap Brotherhood.

Everybody who downloaded our game illegally (for free) has now a chance to redeem himself and get the latest version of the game (Win+Mac+Linux) and itís fantastic Soundtrack only for $5 (instead of $20).

We released the game DRM free which means it doesnít include any anti-piracy protection, therefore the game doesnít bother players with any serial codes or online authentication, but itís also very easy to copy it. Our estimate from the feedback is that only 5-15% of Machinarium players actually paid for the game. If you decide to buy the game, you can be sure youíll support directly the developers, not any big publisher or distributor.

Update:
we just want to assure you, we donít think you have pirated the game first if are going to buy it now:)
This sale isnít only for pitaes, itís for all. Thanks to everybody who paid for the game!
