Super Meat Boy Creators ‘Don’t F***ing Care About Piracy’

Super Meat Boy creators Team Meat don’t care about piracy even though it is estimated that 10x as many people have illegally downloaded their title than have paid for it.

Speaking on the DarkZero podcast Super Meat Boy creators, Tommy Refenes and Edmund McMillen discussed the issue;

“Our game was hugely pirated – we don’t f***ing care. If there are let’s say 200,000 copies of SMB that are getting passed around for free, that’s 200,000 people who are playing the game,”

“If they like this game there’s a really high probability of their friends coming around and seeing it or them posting about it on their blogs. And it’s not cool to go round and say I really like this game that I stole, so they’re not going to say that. So it’s going to come around to sales.”
