"Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number" developer Jonatan Söderströ m, also known as "Cactus," has told Australia n players they can go ahead and pirate the game if it doesn't get an official release in their country.

On Wednesday, it emerged that the Australia n censor refused to classify the top-down shooter, based on what it deemed as scenes of strong violence, as well as what it determine d as a rape scene.

Söderströ m made the comment in an email to an Australia n fan who asked what's the best way to purchase the game if it doesn't get an official release in the country. The exchange was posted to Reddit and later confirmed as authentic by publisher Devolver Digital.

If it ends up not being released in Australia, just pirate it after release," Söderströ m said. "No need to send us any money, just enjoy the game!"

Developer Dennaton Games has since responded to the ban, writing in a statement that it feels the Australia n Classific ation Board has "stretched the facts."

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is the sequel to 2012's stylish, ultra violent top-down shooter, which so far has sold more than a million copies. The game was originall y set to release on PC, PlayStati on 4, PlayStati on 3, and PlayStati on Vita in 2014, but is now set to release in the first quarter of this year.

That's awesome! It would be great if they would even release a torrent for their Australia n fans so they wouldn't even have to wait for a potential ly virus ridden one to be made.

Im pretty sure the dev had another glorious statement like that in the past .
He was on some show , and was asked bout ppl pirating games in general , and his opinion on the case .
The guy smiled , and sayd something among those lines.
*I make games for people to enjoy them , so feel free to pirate my game . and if you enjoy it you can buy it after *
Then he even tweeted a link to ThePirate Bay link to DL the game .
That guy is awesome , we need more people like that :)

Yeah he seems like a cool guy. Back then i used pirated copies to check out the game because publisher s rejected to give demos.
