    So while browsing The Pirate Bay for totally legal reasons, on the front page they had this picture:

    It looks to be a pretty cool game. They have a website for it along with a donate button, and they're also on Steam Greenlight, so check it out. I know some people are into these types of games and everything. I plan on checking it out later, you might like it.

    Ya, it's free if you want, or you can donate to them whatever you want.

    I guess. Legit torrents are uploaded all the time, it's just that naming the site gives internet noobs access to basically... everything.

    This is nice, I just donated the 1$, although I might buy more after I try the game... For now I'll go on steam and vote for this. It's seems pretty nice, I love games that have this 16bit feel.

    Giving the game free and only purchase if you can afford gets my vote on Greenlight.

    I wonder what Steam think about all this. Surely making a deal with a major distribution service and then giving away your game for free on an infamous torrent site has its repercussions?

    They haven't been accepted yet, I'm assuming once they get into Steam, they'll remove the torrent they put up.

    Oh sweet, it's out? I saw it randomly on modDB a bit ago and thought it looked super interesting, in the vein of Link's Awakening and stuff.

    Tossed them some coinage and grabbed a download. Will check it out this weekend as time permits.

    It's quite a Zelda love song isn't it? There's more to it than that though. I liked this game a lot and would happily pay them to make more titles.

    Well, it looks like an interesting mix-up between Sword of Mana and Zelda just from looking at the graphics. Two games that are absolutely timeless. I will be checking this out. :P
