Google Without giving any detailed information, Madfinger Games announced that because the piracy rates of their game Dead Trigger were so high on Android, they made the game available for free. This sucks balls. I'm interested in more detailed statistics, especially where, exactly, the piracy rate is highest, considering you can only get paid Google Play applications in 31 countries, and then, often only with a credit card (which many people outside of the US don't have and/or use). It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if those piracy rates mostly come from places without paid applications support and/or with lousy payment options. In any case, Google needs to get its act together with the Play Store.

I too call BS on this.


This game was part of a sale right after introduction which usually means a LOT of sales. Not in this case however, since

1. due to publisher error, it was available (visible) on only a few devices (none of my phones and tablets)
2. according to the reviews, it was very buggy.


PS. I have bought all their other games and they are pretty okey.
