I totally agree with this, AAA games generally hit their targets if they are a good game, and get sales irrespective due to their marketing. However with indies, especially the smaller ones that only sell a small amount of copies, I feel piracy is understated since they depend on those sales entirely to keep going. And i'm talking a 99%+ piracy rate.

Seems there are a ton of people who want to try games out, especially the smaller indie games but aren't prepared to pay. I guess it would still be worse to have no one checking out your game.

I'm the opposite, most times I find demos give me more than I need and I only buy the game if it is super addictive and I need more content

But would you consider buying a 2d platformer if it was impossible to pirate games? that's the question i'm posing

So try before you buy? Do demo's help you decide if the game is worth the purchase?

Hearing a few stories from newly released indies that are seeing plenty of players but few sales, so clearly their game's piracy rate is high.

Really sad to pirate indie games, let alone anything - but I understand that everyone has their reasons, so I wanted to find out what is yours. I hope you were honest as to why you pirate games, so that we can help indie developers better optimize their conversion rate, as it is a hard to make a living and future game with high piracy.

Really like the sound of this one... not enough multiplayer brawlers that are just 1v1 or 2v2 tag-team. This game has that too though... for the purists out there.

Despite running the www.ModDB.com and having access to 150,000+ visitors a day, I know first hand how hard it is getting attention as we are busy launching www.Desura.com and www.IndieDB.com . I thought this was a great article, really enjoy the original approach and hope it works out well for you, because getting noticed in the tsunami (too early?) of updates is challenging!

Having said that I hope we make it slightly easier to get noticed by running an open developer and community driven site here.

We are taking a harder road on this content, and when notified will be deleting the mod and possibly issuing a ban (especially for repeat offenders).

Be creative, make your own it is much more rewarding.

yeah, as I work too much I don't have time to play hardcore games anymore and for some reason these ambient indies seem to really tickle my fancy. Osmos, Eufloria and Auralux are my fav.

Demo is pretty generous too, but playing a mate is pretty cool

There isn't a huge amount we can do. All I can say is there are going to be a lot of great games that don't get released on Steam, so you will miss out if you don't give other providers a shot.

Plus worse than that the indie developers who cannot get on Steam miss your support which they need to improve their games and release future titles.

I understand the reluctance but supporting indies and the competition is good and rest assured we shall work on Desura to make it better and better. It will take time but the occasional purchase support the games and site goes a long way.

I think it just gives you the option and more promotional outlets for ZPS so the developers win and gamers win. You can choose which you wish to use, or you can use both (desura will detect if you already have ZPS installed)
