Whoever said 2D Boy’s 90% piracy rate claim was ridiculous should probably eat their words.
Brighter Minds, publishers of World of Goo, yesterday filed for bankruptcy. Dispute the popularity of the game and the success of 2D Boy as a developer, it hasn’t managed to keep their publisher in the black. Could piracy be to blame?
The publishing company have filed for a chapter 11 bankruptcy, meaning they still keep control of their company while they try to sort out the financial problems. You have to wonder if 2D Boy’s extreme piracy claims are actually quite real after this news.
I’m going to try to contact Brighter Minds and see what they have to say on the situation, but it has to be said that it’s really not good news at all.
