‘Dead Trigger’ Game Now Free on Android Due to ‘Unbelievably High’ Piracy Rate

Aaron Souppouris, writing for The Verge:

Dead Trigger, a zombie FPS for smartphones from the makers of Shadowgun, is now free to download on Android thanks to rampant piracy on the platform. In a statement on Facebook, developer Madfinger Games says that even at $0.99, the piracy rate on Android devices was “unbelievably high.”

The iOS version costs just one buck — let’s make this a good day for Madfinger and buy it.

Update, 2 August 2012: It’s now free on iOS, too.
