Release Date: 15 September 2017
This version of Die Young was released as a "good will" gesture to the community who might potentially be tempted to purchase the game from less than reputable providers or from sources that distribute pirated software. This is a limited time release and includes all game features and fixes that existed prior to Alpha 0.4.0.41.18. This includes all content up to, and including, The High Tower. However, this version could contain some unresolved bugs.
This DRM-free version of the game will be available directly from Indiegala's site until 31 December 2017.
It is unknown at this time whether the DRM-free version will receive support and updates from the developers.
Acid Wizard Studios - Darkwood[edit | edit source]
In August 2017, Acid Wizard Studios released their highly successful title Darkwood for distribution on Pirate Bay, stating that they wanted the game to be accessible to players who could not (for whatever reason) afford the retail price of the game.
The stated motivation behind the similar move from Indiegala was player protection. They are providing the download on their own servers instead of releasing it to the torrent community, though this guarantees nothing unless the user downloads the game directly from their site.
