According to mobile developer Madfinger Games, piracy rates on the Android platform are "unbelievably high".
In a statement issued via Facebook, the dev says that the rate at which Android users were ripping off its neat-looking FPS zombie shooter, Dead Trigger, were so high that it's forced them to make the $0.99 game completely free."[The] piracy rate on Android devices was unbelievably high," said a rep regarding the odd choice to go free. "At first we intend to make this game available [to] as many people as possible - that's why it [cost] as little as a buck much less than the $8 for SHADOWGUN.
The firm said it had no intention of going free-to-play due to its lack of experience with the business model, but adds the the "piracy rate was so giant" that it decided to try it out.
Madfinger Games notes that the game contains no in-app purchases, and its truly free in its entirety.
