Yesterday a new game called Game Dev Tycoon became available. The developers (a two-man garage shop) also released a pirated version of the game onto the torrents, which had a change: if you play the pirated version, you can't make any profit because of all the people who steal your game.
And now the irony of ironies: gamers are flooding discussion sites, asking how they can implement DRM for their pseudo-games to prevent the piracy that's stealing all their revenue inside the real game.
The real game they themselves stole, depriving the real authors of revenue...

I want to see if it has more depth than Kairosoft's Game Dev Story (which is a pretty obvious inspiration). I have all of Kairosoft's games (that are available in English/on Android, anyway, they have approximately a squillion of these games in Japan) and love them to bits, but Game Dev Story was their first game and is a bit simplistic.
