Clever

This is a clever little "gotcha."

Not sure it's real, but it's pretty fun.

Nod to Angry Alex.

Hmmm. The poor victim of piracy acknowledges that he steals other people's games, or at least used to before making this his business. Seems like the culture of that entire game developer community is to ignore (intellectual) property rights and steal whatever you want.

Sorta like China.

I’m not mad at you. When I was younger, downloading illegal copies was practically normal but this was mostly because global game distribution was in its infancy.

So... this guy was a pirate... became a software game developer... and got his product pirated.

Not feeling a whole lot of sympathy.

There's another layer of irony here. 'Game Dev Tycoon' is apparently pretty much a direct copy of 'Game Dev Story' with better graphics.
