Slay the Princess: the studio invites you to hack the game – News

A bold strategy that deserves explanations. Published in 2023, Slay the Princess is an excellent narrative adventure with multiple branches which finds a second youth thanks to the horror Youtuber Markiplier. Black Tabby Games encourages penniless fans to hack Slay the Princess rather than experiencing the story vicariously. “The game is incredibly responsive to your choices, each game is personalized“, we can read in a now deleted Twitter message. “If you can’t buy our game, pirate it! We do not care. You can always buy a copy later if you think the game is good enough.

Slay the Prices

Incentives now removed, undoubtedly because the publisher Serenity Forge did not view this call for free access favorably. Black Tabby Games is, however, far from being the only studio to encourage piracy of its own productions. In March 2022, Russian indie studio Four Quarters allowed players interested in Loop Hero to hack its baby to circumvent restrictions hitting Russia, even receiving the blessing of its publisher Devolver. Mode 7 (Fights in Tight Spaces) and Vlambeer (Nuclear Throne, Luftrausers) also prefer that you pirate their products rather than exploit the gray market for key resales.

Black Tabby Games is certainly counting on the big free update Slay the Princess: The Pristine Cut to replenish these coffers this fall. This sturdy foam patch will expand the initial story, but above all will localize the adventure in eleven languages ​​including French. Enough to catch new sales. The base game will be on sale from June 27.
