After fans discovered last week that Amazon’s storefront was hosting pirated sales of indie games Surviving Mars and Frostpunk, the games’ developers worked with Amazon to shut down the illegitimate sales. And now the games’ developers are giving away free copies to anyone who purchased a pirated copy, IGN has learned.
“After some discussion, we’ve decided that all the people that contacted us and provided the receipt for buying the game on Amazon will receive a free Steam code for Frostpunk from us,” PR & Marketing Manager Karol Zajaczkowski said over email. “We are still in touch with Amazon and some other companies that suffered from this event, but it may take some time to find a satisfying solution. In the meantime, we don’t want to keep people waiting if they wanted to play our game, as they didn’t do anything wrong here.”
