In our recent review, we praised Shadow Warrior 2 for its varied weapons, random level generation, and over-the-top shooting.

Apparently, the game has another feature that's sure to draw praise from many gamers: a complete lack of piracy protection or digital rights management, which the developers apparently think is a waste of time.

"We don't support piracy, but currently there isn't a good way to stop it without hurting our customers," Flying Wild Hog developer Krzysztof KriS Narkowicz wrote on the game's Steam forum in response to a question about trying to force potential pirates to purchase the game instead .

"Denuvo means we would have to spend money for making a worse version for our legit customers.

It's like this FBI warning screen on legit movies."

Expanding on those thoughts in a recent interview with Kotaku, Narkowicz explained why he felt the DRM value proposition wasn't worth it.
