Trivia

Torrent release

Along with the regular, commercial release, the developers uploaded unannounced an edited version of the full game to the popular file sharing site The Pirate Bay for free. People who downloaded that version assumed to be playing an illegal edition, but they were treated to the full game provided by the developers without any cut content. The creators however filled the game with references to pirates, pirate characters, and pirate hats, but without disrupting the regular gameplay. Alex Nichiporchik, on of the developers, stated:

You can't really stop piracy, all you can do is make it work for you and/or provide something that people actually want to pay for. For us this is humour, we like making people laugh.
