Massive respect to the developers of Darkwood [Official Site, Steam, GOG]! They've released a news post about how things have gone for them and inside is a link to an imgur post, containing a little story and a free torrent if you can't afford the game right now.

Here's what they said

Steam lets you refund a game if you haven't played it for more than 2 hours, and as a developer we can see the reason why people refunded it. When we read the explanation from someone who wrote that he needed the refund because he didn't want his parents to be stressed out when seeing the bill at the end of the month... well, it made us feel quite bad.
So we decided to do something about it! If you don't have the money and want to play the game, we have a safe torrent on the Pirate Bay of the latest version of Darkwood (1.0 hotfix 3), completely DRM-free. There's no catch, no added pirate hats for characters or anything like that. We have just one request: if you like Darkwood and want us to continue making games, consider buying it in the future, maybe on a sale, through Steam, GOG or Humble Store. But please, please, don't buy it through any key reselling site. By doing that, you're just feeding the cancer that is leeching off this industry.

Here's the torrent link. However, it's only for the Windows version currently. If you do use that (dual booting?), I urge you to support the developer with a purchase in future, they seem worthy of the support.

Spud13yLike many others here, I'm inclined to pay full price for this now. Next week though; real life taxed me heavily on my last paycheck, lol.

*Homer Simpson voice* Stupid real life, stupid taxes, stupid mortgage, stupid phone that was the same as my mortgage payment.

I just bought the game from GOG to support the developer. I am glad things have worked out for them.

If it ever gets on itch.io will buy it, otherwise it is a no go. Not going to grab the game for free, even if the developers put a torrent up. They deserve support for there work.
